    Well, I said earlier the the one guy he would have to emulate in order to out-suck the Wilpons was Loria, and guess who this article compares his business strategies to?

    That article is excellent, and confirms what I've been saying for years about the Mets: they never know how much money they have to spend in a given offseason. Sandy said as much once, several...

    They're all scumbag billionaires. All of them. The thing is that Jeff and Fred were in over their heads. Doofuses who lucked into a majority stake in a team the prior owner (Doubleday) wanted them to...

    So, maybe I'm weird, but I don't care if he's a scumbag. People in his line of work tend to be. I actually have had this conversation recently with various people, but I actually believe it is not...

    Most philanthropy by billionaires is done for the tax benefits, not to help people. It's also good PR because the media doesn't actually look into it.

    I'll deal with Jeff and Fred for five more years. What I care about is that they have the payroll to be competitive again, which now they will. AND as an added bonus, they'll both be out in five...

    Jeff and Fred still in charge for five years, which sucks, but they'd have money again. So that's a plus.

    Does he really give us better defense? I thought people were saying he isn't any (or much) better than Nimmo in CF.

    The best acting was in the last half-ish of the movie, imo. Pesci was incredible, and De Niro was outstanding. That phone call he made to Jo? C'mon, that was as genuine as anything he's ever put to...

    The ball was still juiced last year, just less so than other recent seasons. MLB (regardless of their public commentary) has been tinkering with the ball the last few years. The record for most...

    Okay Dug. I don't know why it's so hard to comprehend that they could have stayed in the negotiations longer and still not missed out on all three. It was a panic move by a GM out of his depth.

    Just say Brodie ****ed up. It's okay to say it was a bad move. You know that not wanting to miss out on all three is no excuse for the...

    The issue is that they panicked. They signed Ramos before Realmuto was traded and well before Grandal signed. Brodie walked away from the table way too soon in both cases.

    I remember you saying he cost himself a lot of money by going this route. He didn't. He got a good slice more than we offered him -- which, I agree, was a good offer last year. My issue was, if he's...

    This has nothing to do with motivation. His body just won't hold up. I hope that changes this year, but I doubt it will.

    I went to war with MW69 over this, IIRC. I knew he was going to get a good deal. He played it extremely well.

    Yet another quality player the Mets don't land.

    Honestly, I'd say the opposite. Cano, however overpaid he is, will almost certainly play next season, and there's a decent chance he'll play most of the inning remaining on his contract. Meanwhile we...
