It was three weeks ago when we elected a president. After a long, nasty, ugly, expensive and bitter campaign we survived and made it to Election Day. And boom! Just like that more than 57 million Americans, those who voted for Mitt Romney, were pissed off. No matter who would be sworn in in January, literally half this nation would be upset. It was really a no-win situation.
The negotiations between David Wright and Mets management also appears to be a no-win situation, primarily for the “Wilderpon’s”
The outcome is really very simple. We keep him. Or we don’t. Either way, someone may wind up looking bad.
The Wilderpons have reportedly offered Wright 6 years/$100 million. Allegedly, David wants more money over a longer term. As both sides play politics and seem to be more concerned about posturing than what’s good for us fans, we, like the American public, are caught in the middle.
Let’s assume we keep Wright. If management meets his terms, it opens up a whole new series of question...
