Adam Rubin has been covering the Mets for ESPN New York since 2010. Previously he spent 10 years working for the Daily News, including seven years as their Mets beat writer.
Rubin grew up in Long Island, and later graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining the Daily News, he worked as a sportswriter in Alabama, which gave him a chance to cover the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.
In a rare twist, Rubin became the story in 2009. Rubin reported on some troubling incidents involving Mets VP of Player Development Tony Bernazard. Mets' GM Omar Minaya was forced to fire Bernazard. In the press conference announcing the firing, Minaya implied that Rubin wrote the negative stories because he was jockeying for a position in the organization. Rubin challenged Minaya to clearly state his accusations, and Minaya backed down. Minaya later apologized.
