Guess Who Made The Worst Owners In Sports List?

Is it bad that a couple of my favorite moments of the Mets 2014 season had absolutely nothing to do with the play on the field? The first one happened in May when a report came out that co-owner Saul Katz wanted out and was looking to sell his share of the team. I remember thinking at the time, “Oh my God, was this the beginning of the end of the Wilpons’ stranglehold on the...

Featured Post: Wilpon’s Legacy And A Fool’s Hope

The 2015 schedule is hot off the presses as the Mets wrap up their sixth losing season in a row. Please try to contain your excitement. The latest hot potato is whether or not the Mets should bring back manager Terry Collins next season… As if that will make one hell of a difference… You know what the real problem is with this team… Don’t you?

Mets Minority Owner Saul Katz Refutes Report, Does Not Want To Sell

Saul Katz is the brother-in-law of principal owner of the New York Mets Fred Wilpon. He is also a minority holder of the team, but reports had surfaced that Saul Katz was looking to abandon ship. To many Mets fans, this comes as great news as they  have been begging for a change of ownership due to the struggles the franchise has had since 2006. However it seems unlikely as Saul...

New $250M Loan Puts Mets Owners On Easy Street

The Mets’ owners appear to be on the verge of finally putting the team’s financial problems behind them, according to a report in the New York Post.

Going Bowling With The Mets

The Pinstripe Bowl is currently taking place at Yankee Stadium, which leads to the obvious question: Why can’t the New York Mets host their own college bowl game? Or, perhaps make a bid to host the NHL’s Winter Classic at Citi Field? Are you telling me the NCAA can’t fit in one more bowl game, hosted by the Mets and Citi Bank? I can’t believe that for a second. Fred Wilpon...
