    Stated with your usual elegance.

    Holliday was a .300+ hitter at home and on the road. Bay was more dependent on playing in an environment where his fly balls would leave the ballpark. Citi...

    The guy recites a string of historical facts. You can't really "agree" or "disagree" with them. The Wilpons never went for the best guy available outside of a very narrow window when SNY and the...

    I went out on a limb and called the Wilpons' actions perfectly in 2012. Back then everybody here was still talking about how they'd spend when big contracts like Santana came off the books. ...

    I don't think the mall will draw more fans to Citi Field but a winning Mets team will draw more traffic to a mall. A "hot" winning Mets team drawing more fans will also enable the Wilpons to rent...

    Oh, I predicted they'd do nothing this off-season - back in 2012!

    You won't see much action or spending until just before the Wilpons start looking for tenants for the Willets Point mall.

    I see...

    LOL! Is 2015 over already?

    The existence of this thread tells you all you need to know about the Wilpons.

    They're so brazen we're going on 4 years without a real shortstop. I wonder if...

    Ownership cares more about the mall than the team. A lot of team decisions seem to based on creating a timetable where Mets improvement will synergize with the mall's opening.

    "The Plan" is to...

    The appeal to authority at the end of this post is sad.

    I'll keep my response succinct.

    Here's you talking about Mets payroll back in 2012.



    They didn't spend. They aren't spending. ...

    Thank you for this.

    As you've probably already realized in this world, some people will never admit they're wrong. These same people often have trouble giving credit to those that were right. ...

    Why do you bother responding to my posts when you don't read them?



    In the future if I don't respond to any posts directed at me it's because the question was already answered.

    AP Apologetics.

    The Wilpons might be draining a fortune from SNY but it wouldn't be so profitable if they weren't such great businessmen!

    The issue? I had asked a question: How much does it cost to launch a regional sports network?

    We know from a couple of sources it costs about $100 million:

    Please explain... How did launching SNY result in $600 million in debt?

    What did they spend that money on?

    And what happened to the nearly $2 billion in SNY cash flow since 2006? Did it all...

    I've been saying this for five years. It's been obvious from the beginning that the Wilpons couldn't care less about a winning team. People used to argue with me about this. I doubt anyone that...

    Your rosy prediction is that barring significant injuries and with a couple acquisitions the Mets can compete next year. This might be true. It was probably true last off-season. It's neither...

    I called 2015 a punt a few years ago. No goodies for Mets fans until Fred, Jeff and Saul need them to generate traffic for the mall. I still marvel at how some are reluctant to slam the flagrant...

    I guess the Wilpons are desperate to dump Murphy's salary before he gets another raise this off season, so they're praying Herrera doesn't embarrass himself so they can have an excuse.

    I'm saying Turner's batted ball ratios aren't too far from his norm except for some added pop. He should have had a higher BABIP for his entire career. If it's unusually high this year it's just...
