A Reminder to all Tabloid Writers & Columnists

Make what you will of Omar Minaya's broadside shot at Adam Rubin and the Daily News, but never forget the muckdruggery of Dick Young -yup, at the News- that drove Tom Seaver out of the city in 1977 amidst speculation, scuttlebutt and innuendo. I'm certain Mr. Rubin has his facts, but what is he hiding? A bad experience -did Tony Bernazard overhear?- whilst speaking to Jeff Wilpon about a job in the organization probably gave him several axes to grind. Granted, some reporters are unapologetic about burning bridges -Larry Brooks and Peter Vecsey to name two- but I don't think they've filed for jobs with any local sporting club.
