CHEMICAL IMBALANCE San Diego Union-Tribune 11/16 03 C3 "Mets scout will be canned after racial remarks." In the fallout from his drunken and insulting remarks to Kim Ng, superscout Bill Singer is about to become the shortest-lived Mets front office executive in team history. In the immediate aftermath of the incident in Phoenix, Singer met privately with Duquesne (Mets GM Jim Duquette) and offered his explanation for the incident, saying that he had been on a low-carbohydrate diet, which caused him to suffer a chemical imbalance in conjunction with drinking alcohol. "That didn't was with Jim and it sure won't wash with Fred," a Mets source said in reference to Mets owner Fred Wilpon. "Plain and simple, there's no excuse for that kind of behavior, and there's no saving this guy."
