This is an April Fools post.
Here's how I'm hearing it. It looks like the Wilpons want to bring back Omar Minaya and Steve Phillips as additions to Sandy Alderson.
Possibly the strangest move the Wilpons could do.
Past-GM Minaya was working for the Padres organization, and Phillips was most recently working for ESPN.
Your guess is as good as mine as to why this is going down, and now of all times of the year.
Apparently, the Wilpons realize they have some cash to spend and want to bring in Minaya and Wilpon to make some big signings.
Please tell me how this will work out well for the team.
Really, do they have any common sense at all?!
I truly cannot believe that Alderson, Wilpon and Minaya could work together as a three-team GM squad.
Lots of ways this can get screwed up, and fast.
Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if Alderson quits in the coming days.
Obviously, he'd be totally in the right to do so.
Once Minaya and Phillips join, how can one GM make any decisions? By putting it to a vote?
Literally, this is the worst news ever.
Happy April Fools.
