    A ball on the tee is still faster than spnited's best fastball. And more reliable than Aaron Heilman in the ninth inning.

    And if it goes in the stands, you bet Josh Hampel will beat him out for it.

    I hear the Mets PR department is going to pass that off as a tribute to Rusty Staub

    It amazes me how a man that grew up in NYC during the glory days and loves baseball can be so absolutely tone deaf with the Mets. Fred Wilpon thinks he's running the Marlins or Brewers, where fans need to be coaxed into the stadium and interest needs to be drummed up. The constant changing of logos, colors, hats, shirts, etc. makes the Mets look less relevant, not more. Fred need only look across town to see how a franchise that values its history and connection with the past will increase the attachment of its fans. I only hope Bernie Madoff took enough that they will eventually be forced to sell.

    It's much more Jeff Wilpon's doing than Fred's, Thomson.
    Fred pretty much turned full control of the Mets over to Jeff to keep him as far away from the commercial real estate business as possible .

    And now he's pissing away the one thing that seemed bulletproof.

    Pop me some fucking popcorn. I love this.

    A new, rusty stadium, named for a near-bankrupt corporation. You don't suppose they can coax Craig Swan out of retirement do you?
