ESPN  The owners of the New York Mets baseball team made about $48 million in dealings with swindler Bernard Madoff, court documents showed. The Mets Limited Partnership, which is connected to the Wilpon family, led by Mets owner Fred Wilpon, deposited $522.8 million in two accounts with Madoff and withdrew $570.6 million, according to a Monday filing by court-appointed trustee Irving Picard.  The Mets could not be reached immediately reached for comment by Reuters.

 

Well there goes that excuse.  So the Mets didn’t lose 500+ million in Bernie’s little scheme.  So why couldn’t they make a deal for Halladay?  Why can’t they get better free agents?  Seems like the Yankees got a lot for 400 million, imagine what the Mets could have gotten for 570.6, atleast a solid utility infielder.  This is what is great about being a Yankee fan, my owners spend money on the team.  They don’t tell the world they lost all their money just so they can pocket it themselves and buy more houses and cars and planes and whatever else selfish ass owners buy.  The Mets continue to be a joke franchise.  Their front office is run by trained chimps and their ownership doesn’t give a shit about the team.  They built Citi Field thinking that would shut Mets fans up for a few decades and they could continue to run the team into the ground.  I’ve never seen a more inept carelessly run sports franchise, The Detroit Lions think this is pathetic.
