“I don’t have much respect for Steve Phillips,” says Piniella in response to Phillips speculating that Sweet Lou could have made life hard on Kosuke Fukudome last season. “Let him be around a little more and see what transpires before he makes assumptions. I’ve lost total respect for this guy. If he had something to say, let him say it to me.”
Lou, are you saying you don’t have respect for the guy who drove the Mets into the ground when he was in charge and currently co-hosts a show on ESPN analyzing what other GMs and coaches are doing wrong? Really, how does he have a job?
It would be like Bernie Madoff hosting “Smart Money” on CNN.
For the record, Midwest Swing has personal knowledge that not only is Steve Phillips utterly incompetent, but he’s also a complete and total a-hole.
