Talkin’ Mets: Why the Yankees Don’t Matter

Tonight I discuss why you shouldn’t focus on the Yankees and complain about payroll. Hear me discuss how the Mets actually do have reason to be careful with their spending and it’s just not the owners holding back capital. I talk about the payroll and what the most important thing the Mets can do to compete at a high level this offseason. Hint: it’s not just spending on free agents.

Media consultant Joe Casale talks about the Yankees deal for Giancarlo Stanton and educates us on the details of the CBA and the Competitive Balance Tax. Both of these are rarely cited by the media who is more concerned about pressuring teams to “win the offseason” versus making smart decisions that put organization in good long-term situation.
