Brodie Van Wagenen wrong to hide behind ‘organization’ speak

Brodie Van Wagenen sat in the first-base dugout Friday afternoon at Marlins Park and answered quickly about his soon-to-be 40-51 Mets.

“I think that any time a team struggles it’s on the organization,’’ the general manager began.

“I think that this organization has provided baseball operations with a tremendous amount of support. They’ve given us autonomy to reach a consensus about what baseball moves we think are in the best interests of the organization and then we move forward collectively as one unit. I wouldn’t want to put the blame on players or coaches or scouts or anybody of that matter, but I can tell you that this team that we built was one that was a unified vision and it hasn’t worked. So I accept my responsibility in that capacity as well.’’

Maybe, but the article is typical Kevin Kernan hackwork.

"Brodie Van Wagenen" sounds like a John Grisham character.

I've said for years -- really since Murdoch took it over -- that no respectable fish would ever want to find itself wrapped in the Post.

I'd try to find a second confirmation if the Post told me the sky was blue.
