>Wilpon's Dodgers Lose To Crosstown Rivals

> Brad Penny didn’t have his best stuff as Fred Wilpon’s Brooklyn Dodgers lost to the crosstown Manhattan Mets 12-1.

The Wilpon family has owned the Dodgers since the 1940’s, and this marks their 50th and final season at Shea Stadium before they move into the new Citi Field which will honor the history of the Dodgers and the great Jackie Robinson.

Wilpon was sad that the Dodgers lost to the team from the Polo Grounds but was consoled that Dem Bums took two of three.

After the game someone tried to tell Wilpon that the Dodgers skipped town 50 years ago and the Mets have their own history (and that Jackie Robinson never played for the Mets) but he would have none of it.
