Oddsmakers expect Mets to fire Minaya at season's end

14

While Omar Minaya got a vote of confidence from the New York Mets' front office, odds are he won't be back next season as general manager. Internet gambling Web site BetUS.com has posted 1-2 odds that Minaya will be fired before the end of the year. A winning $100 bet would return only a $50 profit plus the initial stake. Wilpon "doesn't want to rock the boat before the end of a doomed season on the off-chance the Mets sneak into the playoffs,'' BetUS spokesman Reed Richards said from the Web site's Costa Rica-based office. "Our bet is they don't make it though, in which case Minaya will likely be gone at some point following the season.'' Minaya has a three-year contract extension that's set to kick in next season. Even so, he's the overwhelming favorite to be the next Major League Baseball general manager to be fired, according to BetUS. Article dated 7/30/09
