Bowa Disses Mets

I think it’s hilarious that Bowa straight up dissed the Mets in a Maddog intvw:

“You know, I don’t like losing, and I go to a team like New York or somebody that’s not committed to winning, I mean, I gotta really delve into that and say, ‘Is it going to get better?’  If it gets better, I like seeing teams get better.  But if it’s going to stay the same, you know, I don’t like stuff like that.  I like to compete.”

Ouch - that hurts and makes me laugh at the same time - he did it so casually and matter of factly that I think it’s awfully telling what a joke the Mets are around the league.

    Until the Wilpon’s are gone it will not change-They have had the NL’s Premier team(as far as possible income/media play) for 20+ years and cannot get it right-Proof is in the pudding. And now on another blog rumours of little Jeffie meddling wi Alderson…

    Bowa is Bowa. I really don’t want him here, besides his other odors people talked about, he has a real air of negativity around him.

    He says he wants to ride the coattails of a competing team instead of putting in the hard work of being part of a rebuild…Do we need to wedge that attitude into our next year??

    Forgot to mention if arod comes up with 2 outs in the 9th next year, maybe they should pinch hit for him……2 years in a row!!!! LOL

    Check out Reyes in ESPN’s Body Issue. WOA.

    Who really care what Larry Bowa thinks? I woulld rather have Ringelman anyway if the choice is between those two!

    It was kind of surprising that they let some many coaches go. I guess things weren’t as cohesive as they were made out to be at the coaching level.

    Just glad the “High Payroll” teams got knocked out early. It just goes to show you that getting to playoffs doesn’t have to be about who spends the most!

    Before you know it Spring Training will be here and we will hopefully be optimistic about the 2012 season. It actually looks like the Mets and Skanks will play a ST game in Tampa in April, just before the season opens.

    I just hope the Mets stay on track and make some good moves over the winter.

    The top nine teams with the highest payrolls are now OUT of the playoffs!

    10) Tigers-105.7 mil
    11) Cards 105.4 mil
    13) Texas-92.3 mil
    17) Brewers 85.5 mil

    It can be done!

    ^Just look at the Tigers. Losing seasons from 1994 to 2005, including the 119-loss 2003 season. Since then, they have had winning seasons in 5 of the last 6 years, went to the WS in 2006, and certainly have a good shot to do so. The key? Drafting and developing good pitching (Verlander, Bonderman, Zumaya, Robertson, Rodney, etc.)

  7. John In Athens Says:

    Larry Bowa makes me appreciate Terry Collins that much more.

  8. the dude formerly known as bill l. Says:

    LC: ok, I don’t disagree that they have drafted well and developed pitching, but they have also spent like a major market team since 2005. In that year, they finished 71-91 with a $68 million dollar payroll, which was the fifteenth highest payroll in the league. Next year came the rookie sensation of Verlander and some more investment, up to 82 million (14th). Next year they moved it up to 95 million, 8th in the league. The following year, in an attempt to win it all they jumped even with the Mets spending 137 million dollars, 3rd in the league. Next year 117 million, 5th in league, next year 122, 6th in league, this year 105 million, tenth in league. They currently have 320 million dollars invested in just Cabrera, Verlander, V. Martinez and Guillen’s contracts and are on the hook for sizable amounts to Benoit, Valverde, Pheralta, and Magglio. It’s an unbelievable expenditure, given that they play their games in a city where whole blocks are being converted back into trees, and where empty houses are as common as occupied ones. I know that the fans turn out, but it has been an amazing investment by ownership, in addition to the homegrown talent. It’s been an amazing investment by Ilitch: he forked over much of the money for Comerica, and has the team more leveraged than almost any team in baseball. Hopefully, he can keep it going, and keep this group together for a successful run. So, my point: they certainly don’t spend like the Pittsburgh Pirates or other small market teams. They have massively invested and give their fans a great show. And check out their ticket prices: they are low enough for the average fan to afford to come out to the park.

    What do we have to do as fans to pry away the diseased grip of the wilpons?

  10. CowCrusher Says:

    Everybody, find the Prof. a bib, she’s going into. Full blown “Cougar Mode”!!. :-D

  11. Joltin' Joe Says:

    Larry Bowa speaks the truth.

    The Wilpons are committed to LOSING.

    Wait - check that - the Wilpons are commited to LOSING with MAXIMUM SHAME.

    What a f**king retard.

    Does your presidential vote really count the same as mine?

    That saddens me.

    I’m sure that it’s not the only thing that saddens you, Little Miss Sunshine.
