If you are a baseball fan, you've heard all the about the tacky way in which the Mets handled the situation with their manager, Willie Randolph. Mets management kept telling him one thing, all the while planning to fire him. Then, for some reason known only to the heartless hacks who own the team, they let Randolph travel all the way to Anaheim (where the Mets are playing the Angels). Then they fire him and his two most trustworthy assistants at 12:01 AM, (3:00 AM in New York), when hopefully, no one will notice.
Reading this (I don't care a whit about the Mets, but think highly of Willie from his days with the Yankees) it struck me . . . Where have I heard this before? The way in which the Mets owners (the Wilpons) handled this, bears a striking resemblance to the way in which LCMS President Kieschnick and David Strang orchestrated the firing of Todd Wilken and Jeff Schwarz, along with the cancellation of Issues, Etc., on Monday of Holy Week. As you read Olney's lambaste of the Mets, see if you see the same parallels I do to the bureaucrats running the LCMS. Click here: ESPN - Buster Olney Blog
