I am convinced that Francesca knows something.. he made a sly comment in the middle of the debate of whether it was Wilpons call or Omar's call on Willie's firing.
Mike said "How do you know that Willie and Omar didn't exchange words?"
That is the kind of thing that Francesca tosses out without backing up but I believe means that he knows something behind the scenes.
The big question is what happened that causes the firing to happen on Monday night? The Mets won the game. Why fire him then? Chris also said that John Heyman told him that Omar told Willie on the bus that his job was safe.
If what Heyman says is true (and who knows if it was), then what happened in between the bus ride and a win over one of the top teams in baseball to cause Willie to get fired?
Did Omar go in to talk to Willie post game and Willie got annoyed, said some things, was feeling a little cocky after two straight wins and basically told Omar to shove it. Omar got pissed since he has been defending Willie all this time and in an act of frustration fired Willie?
I believe Mike knows something. I just think he is the cat who ate the canary and he is close to Omar and I believe that he is trying to leak that something went down.
