If you’re unaware Howard Megdal, who is a talented blogger and author of at least 2 books, will no longer be credentialed at CityField. This is a direct response to his brutally honest insights to the Wilpon finances and chances of retaining ownership of the Mets.
First off I’m a fan of Megdals determination to be a voice of the fans in a more tangible manner than your average blogger.
And while part of me wants to be outraged by the infringement of any freedom of the press… The truth is I don’t blame ‘em for not credentialing him.
I mean what did he or anyone else think was going to happen?
Of course BMF pulls no punches when it comes to my opinion of the Wilponzi’s yet I believe I can look at this objectively.
It’s not a right to be able to enter a baseball stadium as a member of the media, it’s a privilege. If you’re part of the BBWAA, ESPN or SNY than you’ve got some rights but for everyone else they have the right to deny you should they so choose.
I’m just saying.
But the good news for Megdal here is he’s got the Mets spotlight (or cross hairs) squarely fixed on him and his now very public adversarial relationship with ownership.
If played correctly (and I have no answers) this could be spun into his big break.
It’s your move Megdal!
