NEW YORK (WFAN) — Mookie Wilson is still looking for answers from the New York Mets.
Specifically, why was he fired as first base coach after the 2011 season?
Wilson stopped by the WFAN studios on Wednesday morning to talk about his beef with the team that still cuts him a paycheck — albeit a much, much smaller one — as an ambassador and roving instructor.
“I have absolutely no idea (why I was canned),” Wilson said Wednesday on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show. “But let’s be honest here: coaches come and go. Do they have to give an explanation? Maybe not. Some people feel that they maybe deserve an explanation, and I just happen to be one of those guys.”
