It looks like that's what's happened. All I keep hearing is how they don't have money to go after free agents, how they have a strict budget in the draft, how there's no hope of contending next year...
How the hell did this happen? They have the highest revenue in the National League! All of a sudden the experience of being a Mets fan has become effectively the same as being a Royals fan.
The acceptance of this on this board and others is disturbing. The franchise is being run into the ground. This is a more significant topic than how to replace Santana on the cheap or who the next pitching coach is going to be. We all know the 2011 Mets will suck in advance - despite charging the highest prices in the league and having the highest revenue!
It's a ****ing scandal.
