    I provide no retraction for the same reason you provide no quote. I never said any such thing.

    My predictions over a 5 year period have mostly been accurate.

    Why is it the Wilpons' actions aren't a buzzkill but someone taking note of their actions is?

    This is a misleading answer. After one examines the shell game the Wilpons play with SNY/Mets profits one sees the Mets/SNY have been profitable the past decade. If there's a debt load it's a...

    Wow. Dugmet, of all people, trying to play the popularity card. Fine. Let's run with that.

    Why do you suppose 98% dislike the Wilpons?

    When Will Syndergaard Arrive In Flushing?

    Probably should have been some time in 2014, but it was a punt year and the Wilpons didn't want to pay him a Major League salary.

    This is a punt year, too. No reason to bring him up before Super...
