NYSD’s Publisher Joe McDonald was at Citi Field for Omar’s final goodbye after he was “relieved of duties” by Mets ownership.
“We are extremely disappointed in this year’s results and the failures of the past four seasons,” said Jeff Wilpon, Mets Chief Operating Officer in a statement. “We need to hire a new General Manager with a fresh perspective who will transform this club into a winner that we want and our fans deserve.
“We appreciate all that Omar and Jerry have done for the Organization and thank them for their time and effort,” Wilpon said. “Changes like these are never easy, especially when you are dealing with people you like and respect.”[audio:https://www.nysportsday.com/trainor/omarfinal.mp3]
