One Mets' Trash is another Yankees' Treasure

I’ve been thinking about the Mets today, which I know I’m not supposed to do, but a piece I wrote for ESPN required it. As you no doubt have heard, Fred Wilpon slagged off his team in the New...

Season Preview: Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins offseason has me wondering, if they don’t win the division are they a failure? Considering they’ve added talent, and lost none I would say it’s "division or bust". Joan Rivers is jealous at the amount of work the Marlins got this offseason. Not only did they change the team name, but so did their MVP right fielder, and 2011 saves leader. The new, expensive, ballpark in Little Havana is complete, and along with that comes the financial obligation for the franchise to make a lot of money. Step one, change the team name and logo to ensure uniform sales (cha-ching). Step two, hire a fiery new manager that the fans and players can relate to, thus gaining more local and national television interest (cha-ching). Step three, sign the most coveted free agent shortstop to sell more tickets (cha-ching). Finally, step four, make it to the playoffs and reap the benefits of playoff revenue. Check back in September for that one, but it looks promising.

Met Fan Self Immolation Thread: Part 2?

Hey guys, another of mine. Thanks for the great feedback on the last one. Thought I'd share my thoughts on the recent Reyes-Rauch-Francisco swap: Considering that the Mets decided that they could not match a six year, $102 million offer for Jose Reyes -- which amounts to only $17 million per year -- it is hard to know exactly what Sandy Alderson's plan is. The Mets could have kept Reyes, a franchise player, but instead they chose Jon Rauch, Frank Francisco, and eight million dollars. And as you know, they did not even deign to make him an offer. Why? Why let the beloved franchise player leave and sign replace him with known mediocrity? All of this -- in conjunction with many of the other moves the Mets have made, both on and off the field over the last few seasons -- leads me inescapably to an unattractive conclusion. None of these moves make sense in terms of the product that Mets fans will see on the field in 2012 or even 2013. So what could be their motivation? It all stinks. It stinks and it leads me, against my will, to an inescapable conclusion. Money. Wilpon money.
