Mets+Madoff=Profit?

An article by posted on October 21, 2009

According to a report on ESPN.com linked here (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4581715), the NY Mets actually profited from the Bernie Madoff scheme. Awesome. I don’t know if there is an award ceremony for the business that gets the most bad press in a calendar year, but HOW the NY Mets could even be runners up in that category in 2009 is beyond me. Right now, the Mets are neck and neck with David Letterman, and trust me, more people like David Letterman.

I don’t really have an opinion on this matter one way or the other. I could care less how much $ they have or don’t have. I want a roster of 25 baseball players that are watchable and have a legitimate shot at winning a pennant. If they don’t have the money to get that, then sell the team. If they do, then use it and don’t let us down. End of story. I really only posted this because it just came out and I figured some of you would like to discuss this.

I’m actually so annoyed with this entire year long saga of let’s play “How much the Wilpon’s have in their pocket?” that I am actually speechless right now.

I just want it to be April. I want all of the questions like “who should we sign?”, “who do we trade for?”, “how much $ will they spend on free agency?”, “Should Warthen be the pitching coach in 2010?”, all of this stuff, I want it gone. I’m tired of it. 

This will be the longest winter of a Mets fan’s life.
