Brad Barr-US PRESSWIRE
The Mets are broke. Wait, no they're not. Um, well, they possibly still are.
Had to use a Wilpon photo for the Morning News post again. Sick of this, you guys.
Meet the Mets
Faith and Fear welcomes the 2012 class of players getting their first Mets baseball card.
The Daily News compares a potential R.A. Dickey trade to the Knicks letting Jeremy Lin go. This begs the age old question: Dolan or Wilpons?
And of course the real news of the day: According to Michael Salfino's sources, the Mets ownership is apparently broke. Real broke. Oh wait, now they're not. This is a good lesson for all you kids out there. When you write for major news publications and report what would be breaking news on a twitter account, people will probably take you seriously.
Yesterday at AA
James K trolled us all, throwing his weight behind Clayton Kershaw for the 2012 NL Cy Young. TRAID!
Brock Mahan wrote about Bobby Bonilla (and his never-ending deferred contract that I am obligated to mention here).
And Eno Sarris kept tabs on the ever-evolving Salfino rumors.
The Nationals top priority this offseason is resigning Adam LaRoche. I don't know if it's better or worse that the Mets top priority is extending Dickey and Wright.
Joe Pos takes a look at the probable Rookie of the Year winners, Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. Perhaps you've heard of them.
And now, your Mets highlight of the day to get you through the long, cold winter:
Mike Baxter, black belt in base on balls.
And your non-baseball link of the day:
"When Thugs and Hustlers Ruled Dark Alleys:" The Times takes a look at the NYC action bowling culture of the sixties. As someone who's heard all the stories, they're all mostly true.
