    He has to wear that thing to play? He's basically a DH. How will he have any lateral mobility with that?

    Itís true that I always harp on results and think itís the fairest way to judge someone.

    There are exceptions and nuances to the rule though - and I do not think culture is independent of results...

    Heís not professional. He acts like a modern day diva. Itís bad enough coming from players. Itís completely unacceptable from a GM.

    I realize itís unlikely but the other 2/3 is Wilpon owned and they are holding on to the company right?

    NY Mets offseason

    I have no major problem with them choosing not to give Wheeler what Philly did. But stop being the team that trashes players on the way out. Itís small and Wilponish.

    The proper response from BVW...

    They may not get it but itís the kind of thing Iíd ask for in a negotiation for the most expensive price ever paid for an MLB team.

    Only a Wilpon or Van Wagenen could come up with something this asinine to embarrass the organization.

    Of course what I said is relevant. Wheeler did what lots of modern players do - take parting shots. GMs are supposed to be above the fray.

    Why as GM are you taking petty shots at ex players? Players who are still in your division no less.

    They had to get out from under the luxury tax. Wasnít their penalty something like 50% if they did not?

    Seems like a pretty damn good move overall when you consider that.

    Personally I think that Brodie has lucked into a winner. He inherited all the talent that has really helped this team sans JD Davis.

    But winning is what matters most. So if they win it all, he's...

    When I go to Vegas I play at the $1/$3 no limit hold'em tables at Aria. I start with $200 and usually walk away once I've hit $1000 or lost $400.

    The moral of the story is there's a table for...

    Sold at the auction block like an orphaned, broken organization.

    How appropriate for these owners.
