Remove the Head and the Body is Dead


Reading about the Wilpon's and the mess that is the Mets (and not in a good 1962 or 1982 way) is just so evident that ALL problems with our team is the Wilpon's. They are not good owner's (spending $ on payroll a good team does not make) and considering his held-back venom on Carlos Beltran shows me that he isn't as cuddly and nice as he comes across. Despite what Madoff says.

Everything that happens in a company or a team is from the person who has the $ and capital to control. He/she hires (unless they are an absentee owner; another issue) those that make 'baseball' decisions; decides where the $ goes (farm, scouting, payroll, infrastructure, publicity, blah blah.) 

I think we are often lead to believe that if someone is rich &/or owns a company, let's say, must be intelligent or knowledgeable about their pursuits. In reality; like what the Wilpon's do, is run multiple businesses. If one, two fail, there are still 2, 3 other investments you control. Wilpon may love baseball, but he has no clue what it entails. He also has less business sense overall than one would expect.

In short, the Mets will never have continued success under the Wilpon's. There will be moments when things align; good coach, players having careers years, unexpected rookie's; but no steady ship. If Wilpon doesn't go (and his ilk) we will continue to go through each season needing many improbable things to happen in order just to win the National League pennant.

Oh yeah, don't fucking trade Reyes.
