Okay, we now have down on paper how the Wilpon family became Mets owners, the era of Omar Minaya, the beginning of Sandy & Company, the recession, and ‘The House That Number 42 Built’.
I’m going to dumb it down a little here so everyone can understand just how a business survives and what determines the value of your business for a resale or refinancing.

Anthony DiComo of Mets.com, posted about Scott Hairston before the weekend who told him that where he signs after this season will be dependent upon getting more playing time.
Scott Hairston started his 10th consecutive game in the outfield Sunday, a notable feat. Signed last winter to serve as a right-handed bench bat and platoon outfielder, Hairston has played nearly every day...
It was thought Chris Young might not even pitch this season coming off serious shoulder surgery. Instead, he collected $350,000 in bonuses last night for reaching the 20 starts-110 innings milestone.
That’s a lot of money for a supposedly cheap team out of contention to shell out the final week of the season. Other teams in similar situations have pulled the player so they wouldn’t...
Baseball America ranked the Top 20 Prospects in the New York-Penn League and featured four Mets farmhands in RHP Luis Mateo #5, CF Brandon Nimmo #11, RHP Hansel Robles #12 and SS Philip Evans #18. Not a bad showing at all. Here is what they had to say on each of them:5. Luis Mateo:He’s a true power pitcher who sits at 92-95 mph and touches 96 regularly, with good angle on his...
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, scores a heck of an exclusive with David Wright who discusses his thoughts about the Mets, his next contract, Jose Reyes and what he’s looking for in terms of a vision and the direction of the franchise. Wright said he is resolved to test free agency after next season if no extension can be worked out in the next few months.
Wright on Jose Reyes not...
Last night’s loss to the Braves dropped the Mets’ record to 73-85. The team’s actual record matches exactly its Pythagorean Record. Earlier in the year the talk was how the Mets were exceeding their Pythagorean Record by an insane amount. Those of us who pointed this out were scoffed at and while I looked for reasons why Pythagoras might not apply to the Mets back in late May...
The pieces are all familiar. We’ve been here before. There are two games left to the year and the Mets are out of it. Again. We fans sit on the sidelines and watch other guys have fun for the next couple of weeks. We watch, intrigued and happy for the Orioles and A’s. We watch, bored by the Yankees and Braves. We watch, impressed by the Reds and Nationals. We watch, because...
The New York Mets issued nine walks and it eventually caught up to them.
Giancarlo Stanton hit his 37th homer, and Rob Brantly hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth inning to help the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-2 Monday night.
In the bottom of the eighth, Ramon Ramirez (3-4) allowed a leadoff walk to Carlos Lee and then allowed Lee to reach second on a wild pitch...

Adam Greenberg got his one more at bat on Tuesday in the Marlins game against the Mets. Unfortunately for Greenberg, he had to face Mets ace RA Dickey. Greenberg took the first pitch for a strike, and swung through the next two for a Dickey strikeout. At any rate, the whole scene was very moving, including Greenberg coming up to the plate...
MIAMI (AP) -- Soccer will come to the Miami Marlins' new ballpark for the first time Nov. 14 when Venezuela plays Nigeria in an international friendly.
The game, announced Tuesday by Marlins officials, is one of many non-baseball events planned at the ballpark, which opened this year.
The field will be regulation size, with one goal near the Marlins' dugout and the other...
In one of the more heart-warming stories of the Major League Baseball season, Adam Greenberg of the Miami Marlins got his second Major League at-bat of his career after a disastrous first one.
Greenberg's story dates back to the 2005 when he got his first Major League at-bat with the Chicago Cubs but that plate appearance didn't last long as he was hit in the head by the...

Just four games remain for the Phillies this year and they need this one if they want to make the push for a .500 season.
