On an evening where the New York Mets came back in the bottom of the 9th to beat the immortal Mariano Rivera, I can’t help but focus on how much Mets ownership is a joke. In an obvious throw-away year, why can’t we Mets fans enjoy a three game winning streak, two against the hated New York Yankees? Instead, we are focused on the pre-game ceremony, where Jeff Wilpon exchanged the following conversation with Mo:

“I wish we could see you in the World Series, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen this year,” Wilpon said.

“You never know, you never know,” Rivera responded.

“Maybe we can get on a run,” Wilpon concluded.

Ownership doesn’t believe in this team! That’s why ownership needs to go.

The Mets payroll for this year is roughly $95 million. Mets GM Sandy Alderson has been giving us the same song and dance about waiting for the roughly $30 million to come of the books with the Jason Bay and Johann Santana contracts next year to finally invest in this team. They could not sign Michael Bourne because they were so protective of the 9th pick in the draft (This pick better turn out to be better than Mike Trout). Fact of the matter is the Mets will have a $65 million payroll next year. They better invest in free agents (not the best free agent class out there). You cannot operate on $70-$100 million dollar payroll in this New York market. The Wilpons complain that fans don’t come out. I say put a product on the field that the fans will root for!

“Maybe we can get on a run,” Wilpon told Rivera. Maybe if you had a major league baseball roster on the field you could Jeff!
