In the great NY tradition of Oddlot, The Dollar Store, Price Club, and food stamps, Mr. & Mr.s Howell are resisting pulling the trigger on the final steps to put the Mets over the top this year. Captain Omar might very well win out (or deceive them for their own good), but at the moment, cold feet pitter patter their way around the new Citi Field.
Who do we need…Derek Lowe or Olle Perez? My answer… we are the NY Mets. We have two spots open in the rotation and two young arms that might need a break this year. We need pitching. As a fan of a team in the #1 media market in the world… do I want to hear about getting outbid by the Reds for Perez after we sign Lowe? These owners own an Armani suit and love getting stains all over it.
“A Mets official termed it unlikely that the team would sign more than one starter from the group that includes Lowe, Perez and Wolf.”
“The Mets, currently ranked second with a value of $824 million, will also get a new stadium that should push their value close to $1 billion before long. Citigroup (nyse: C – news - people ), beleaguered by the housing market meltdown, is still planning to pay the Amazins $400 million over 20 years for the stadium’s naming rights.”
I need someone to explain to me what the problem is? Why spend so much money to begin with when you’re not going to be aggressive with the final few pieces you need?
By the way…
can we please stop with the Fernando Tatis garbage?
