    The Wilpons are probably constantly going to media to set up an excuse for not resigning Harvey to a market rate contract when the time comes. They pulled the same stuff with Beltran, Dickey, etc. ...

    The Wilpons divert TV money the Mets generate into their own pockets through SNY. They then act like the team is losing money when there's a net profit between the team and SNY.

    Wow. You don't think he already tried?

    One thing Harvey doesn't seem is dumb. Most likely the Mets weren't budging.

    Fred's always had a problem with players with independent, competitive spirits.

    That's why he blew up the 1986 team.

    The Wilpons have armed themselves with scrubs so they won't have to bring their best pitchers with them to start the season. We wouldn't want those arbitration clocks to start running, would we? ...

    It took around three years for the term "payroll flexibility" to become thoroughly discredited. I wonder how long it'll take for the same to happen to "sustainable winning"?
