>The Global Depression Will Help The Mets

>The Mets (and Yankees) are heading for a golden age.

As companies sort through their own financial issues, the money that funds skyboxes and corporate stadium rights will dry up.

That leaves non-skybox ticket sales and tv revenue as the ways teams make money. The New York teams will be able to draw 2 million fans in their sleep. A team like the Royals, I'm not so sure.

When teams start worrying about meeting payroll they will look to deal players (see the Florida Marlins for how that works). The Mets would be wise (and this is always a wise move) to stock the farm. There's likely to be some bargains out there.

As for me, I sure wish the Mets would return my money to me. This is Day 10 of the Mets keeping my money hostage. They sold me playoff tickets, and the letter says that if the games were not played they would credit our credit cards. Did anyone get their money yet?

>I Hate Myself But I Want K-Rod and C.C.

>I run my mouth a lot.  

I preach and preach about the value of homegrown players and I call Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine mean names.

Maybe it’s two collapses in a row but…

I want K-Rod and I want Sabathia.

Break the bank Mets.  It’s all pretend money (and partially the money you have yet to refund me for non-delivered playoff tickets).

For the first time since about 1975 you are on even keel with the Yankees.   They didn’t win (either).   They can no longer hit you over the head with Yankee Stadium.  

This is your chance to win back the city.  

Take your new stadium money and get a closer and another front line starter.

I can’t believe I’m saying this.

>Loge 13: How Shea Will Be Dismantled

>Loge 13 blog (will you guys have a new name?) has a cool story about the process by which Shea will be dismantled.

“It will be dismantled,” said Dave Howard, executive vice president of business operations. “There won’t be an implosion and there won’t be any wrecking balls. It will sort of be strategic cutting and dismantling section by section.”



That process is going to begin in less than two weeks, Howard said, and it’s something the Mets have been quickly preparing for.
