Wagner Doesn’t Want To Bash Willie But…

On ESPN.com, Jayson Stark passes along a quote from Billy Wagner telling us all what we already knew (and if you are lucky enough to know me, you have been hearing me say this since 2005).  There was too much Yankee Way crap from Willie Randolph:

“I don’t want to bash Willie, because I liked him,” Billy Wagner said. “But before, it was more of The Yankee Way. It wasn’t The Mets Way. There was no facial hair. You could never have music in the clubhouse. You couldn’t have kids around. Believe it or not, some of us in here actually like kids.”

Manuel, on the other hand, has loosened all those reins and told his players to “play hard, play fearless and have fun,” Wagner said, and to stop worrying about results. “You know what?” Wagner said. “We’ve found out it’s pretty easy to play when you stop playing for stats and just go out and play hard and play to have fun.”
