Bad Investment Applesauce - Forbes says Mets lost value, Turner "congratulates" Emaus, Boyer can be FA


Meet the Mets

Forbes released its annual report on MLB team values and it didn't contain much good news for the Wilpons. The Mets lost 13% of their value last year, the steepest drop of any MLB team. Other things of note from the Forbes report: the Braves ownership team is looking to unload the squad and the Padres President contests the report's claim that his team was the most profitable last year.

In terms of actual baseball news, Adam Rubin reports that Blaine Boyer can opt for free agency if he does not make the Met roster by Mar. 31.

Rob Steingall wonders why Chris Young can continue to be successful after such a steep decline in pitch velocity.

Lucas Duda is a type of prospect the Mets haven't had in a while.

With Brad Emaus taking the lead in the second base job (check out this Justin Turner quote, btw), it appears as though Met management is shopping Terry Collins favorite Luis Hernandez.

With Oliver Perez signing with Washington, it ends the consequences of Duaner Sanchez's taxi cab accident.
