REALEST OF THE WEEK

Well that didn't take long. During his second night on the job, Jerry Manuel got into it with Mets shortstop Jose Reyes after yanking his start SS due to injury.

Afterward, South Side Jerry made it clear he ain't gonna be anyone's bitch like Willie Randolph. Said Manuel:

"I told him next time he does that I'm going to get my blade out and cut him. I'm a gangster. You go gangster on me, I'm going to have to get you.

I would do anything to have seen the look on Omar Minaya's face when he read that; you get destroyed in the media over firing the old manager and two days later your new guy is threatening to stab the franchise cornerstone.
