Bill Madden: Mets Only Want Low Budget Latin Players

I can’t believe what I just read from Bill Madden in the Daily News this morning.

Mets? Did somebody say the Mets? They won’t spend the money for Holliday, Bay or Lackey and apparently, they’re only interested in signing low-budget Latin players, having shown little or no interest in Byrd, Figgins, DeRosa, Wolf or even Staten Island’s Jason Marquis, while waiting for their markets to come to them. At the same time, the Phillies and Braves wasted no time in addressing their needs. Sad.

Is he serious?

It’s time for the Daily News to do the right thing and fire Bill Madden.

In this day and age, for someone with such a wide reaching audience to regurgitate such venom is repulsive as well as ignorant.

Madden does a grave disservice to all the other great writers of the Daily News.

Hat tip to Mets Police for the heads up.
