The owners of the Mets may consider themselves longtime businessmen but they’re clearly terrible at conducting business.
Didja hear the latest? The Mets need another emergency loan. Not the one we learned about last week — this is an entirely new bailout. An emergency injection of cash to help make payroll.
This is merely the latest in an alarming series of shady Met money moves. The bank doesn’t even want to lend the money but its gonna happen thanks to Selig and his his old boys network.
BMF is no businessman but it sure does feel like this franchise is about to slip away from the Wilpons.
According to the Post the Mets lose 50M / year. The Wilpons have been ponzi’ed twice in a decade. Seems to me they only people who get caught up in a ponzi scheme twice are either suckers or crooks - neither of which do I want owning the Mets.
On Field Good News:
• Niese posted 3 innings allowing two hits with 2 K’s. This kid could really pop this year.
• Pedro Beato, Manny Acosta and Parnell allowed 1R on 5H in final 4 frames. Bea-to! Bea-to!!…
• Fernando Martinez picked up 2 more hits — a quick start to spring — BMF is dying to get hyped about this kid again
