    Ungaro also noted that, while the team wished to remain anonymous, it was an organization that many might not expect
    The Wilpons? Maybe they traded some shares of the Mets for it..

    Definitely the Phillies, they were just hiring stat guys off the street so this sounds like their handy work.

    Ya I know, I doubt it's much more and the price goes up really fast after you hit a million not to mention other needed factors like power, cooling ect... You can't just take one home and plug it into a wall outlet.
