Willie Watch: Mazzilli

Again I don’t want to steal other people’s hard work – this is from Newsday and Neil Best, but as Mazzilli Central I thought we should share.

Best transcribed Mazzilli on Willie. Here’s a snippet

“I had a problem with that article, because he felt that it was kind of off the record. I know what Willie was going through by just chatting with this writer. I feel that there’s an obligation for the journalist to ask that person if you really want to say this.

The entire piece is here

Atlanta Laughs At You, Me, Omar, Fred & Willie

Among the things the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote that will annoy you:

For 2 1/4 seasons the Mets have acted as if theyâ€re the National Leagueâ€s best team, but the cold truth is that they havenâ€t been anything special since 2006. They fell to historic pieces last fall — 12 losses in their final 17 games — and this year, when they are supposed to prove that collapse was an epic fluke, theyâ€ve proved only that theyâ€re both overheated and undermanaged.

And here, not for the first or even the hundredth time, we see why the Braves remain the gold standard of communal harmony. They donâ€t throw 25 players together without consideration for compatibility. (Remember when Sports Illustrated hailed Mets GM Omar Minaya as a “Mixmaster”?) The manager never creates problems; he defuses them. And if thereâ€s one thing Iâ€ve learned in 30 years of hanging around clubhouses, itâ€s that mood absolutely matters.

Torre Surfs The Willie Watch

“It’s a tough market,” Torre said. “Willie is a good man, he’s had success as a player and a manager. Unfortunately, with what happened last year, he’s having to endure some things tough to endure.

“People get caught up on both sides of the equation. He’s under a great deal of pressure, as is [Yankees manager] Joe Girardi, as was I [for 12 years as the Yankees manager]. Maybe you’re not as well-rested one day and you get a little cranky.”

I like Joe’s new commercial that was on during Idol – Joe adjusting to life in LA – but I can’t find it online to share.
