How getting fired is like being part of This Old House.

Mets now ex-pitching coach Rick Peterson waxes philosophic about getting fired in yesterday's midnight massacre of the team's coaching staff orchestrated by GM Omar "Machine Gun" Minaya...
"Homes go through renovations, and sometimes you have to make changes when things don’t go that well, and I’m part of that change. I totally understand that ... I’m the hardwood floor that’s getting ripped out, and they’re going to bring in the Tuscany tile. It’ll be great."
Peterson's contract runs through 2009. It's easier to wax philosophic when you have a year-and-a-half of paid vacation in your pocket.
