SLACKISH REACTION: No, A-Rod is not buying the Mets. Just a silly headline to distract you. There’s rich and then there is Wilpons Rich. Sure he could put together an ownership group like Jeter did but just stop.
Oh by the way, Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season. I thought baseball didn’t like cheating, so I am not sure how A-Rod’s ownership group would get approved.
NOT LINKING: The General Manager took a shot at Wheeler. I hope Wheeler wins the Cy Young. Mr. General Manager has shown himself to make bad judgement calls – that Cano/Diaz trade didn’t work out so well, not to mention the financial albatross it put on the franchise – and he of course went out of his way to call Carlos Beltran trustworthy….so Mr. GM should just keep quiet and stop saying stupid things like Come and Get Us.
I’m also not linking to Mickey Hodges says he has Mets PTSD. We all have Mets PTSD. Whatever. The guy will be better off in the long not being part of this.
The Wags thing really got me thinking – if you were a Free Agent, why would you ever want to come to Queens. If you want NEW YORK you go play for the Yankees and you just become part of their Pride And Tradition machine and hope to become the 33rd number retired.
If not, I dunno maybe you go play for Boston. Or go hide out on the West Coast. But why would you ever ever want to come to Queens where they bash you on the way out and even if you’re one of the all time greats they wait to honor you until you’re either dead or too old to appreciate it.
