It has been days since the Willie Randolph story broke in the Bergen Record. Mike and the Mad Dog have taken numerous calls, several interviews including a vital one with Baltimore Orioles manager Dave Trembley, along with a 10 minute call with Tony Russo, who is not happy with the way that the Yankees are playing. I might have not been watching but there is a good chance they talked with Jim Nantz about some book his plugging. They love Nantz. GREAT JOB OUT OF NANTZ!
But i would like to say that it is a TERRIBLE JOB out of EDDIE ERICKSON to not have booked Ian O Connor. How difficult is that booking? Does no one have his number? Is his headshot not ready? Are they not allowed because of their weekly informational sessions with Jon Heyman?
Wouldn't an interview with Ian O Connor provide some necessary information to Mets fans.
Question 1: Ian, was the conversation off the record?
Question 2: What was Willie's state during the interview? Why was he so angry after just beating the Yankees?
Question 3: How did the race issue come up?
There would be more like this and I bet we would get some new information that we never had up to this point..
Since it doesn't look like that's happening, here is Ian O Connors quotes from today's Bergen Record about what Willie said on the WFAN
O’Connor responded to Randolph’s claims, stating, “I’m sorry Willie feels the way he does. But when I interviewed him in the visitors clubhouse at Yankee Stadium Sunday he never asked for any part of the conversation to be off the record. Nor did I offer to put any part of the conversation off the record. I asked him pointed questions and tape recorded the interview. If he had made the request for any portion of the interview to be off the record of course I would have honored it.”
