TIME FOR THE SKILL SETS TO SELL THE METS

As I watched the Frankie Rodriguez (Frankie will be the name he goes by here)  press conference I should have felt happy and excited but all I could think about was the presser was held in the Bunch of Broke Ass’ (Citigroup) Headquarters and the owner of our team is very close to be an Old  Broke Ass and there is his son who could be a Dumb Broke Ass and all I could do was laugh and think that makes me A Dumb Mets Blogger Broke Ass and that led me to shout as the Great  Joe Bada Bing Benigno would say “OH THE PAIN”

 

The more the Skill Sets say the Mets are not effected by his getting duped by his buddy Bernie Maddoff the more I worry because as we all know “Don’t Worry” is doing 10 to 15 in Sing-Sing.

 

So now that everyone took their bows at the Bunch of Broke Ass’ Building today and we all patted Omar on the back for a job well done what’s the next move? It better be for Derek Lowe and one more veteran pitcher. If it’s Lowe and OP even better. But you know what I don’t think the Mets are signing either one of them because I think this Madoff scandal is bigger and more damaging to the Skill Sets than they are letting on. The company line is “things are fine, no effect on the teams finances” but if that’s so prove it. The Mets money woes go deeper than Bernie Madoff. Every deal the Skill Sets are in has turned to shit. They start a TV Network and I guess it makes money but for the most part it’s unwatchable. There is not one show on SNY I have any desire to take my finger and press the channel on my remote to. Then there is the deal with Citigroup and that name on the ball park marquee. The place hasn’t open yet and it has failure written all over it. Now the Madoff cluster fuck; it just adds to failure after failure by the Skill Sets regime. 

 

Remember boys and girls, if it weren’t for Nellie D when he was an equal partner in the team you would not be prancing along in your 31 PIAZZA jerseys as he made the push to acquire Mike Piazza and Doubleday also had no fear of the Highlanders as he knew that between he and Freddy Skill Sets that could buy and sell the Bronx Robber Barron, Nellie D was the aggressive owner who loved to make a back page splash. 

 

I guess what I ‘m getting to is maybe with all these bad investments and bad karma it’s time for the Skill Sets to sell the team. If not outright maybe they need to sell parts of the team and put together a Board of Directors that are not family or cronies. Get some people on board that can bring the franchise forward. As much as I hate to get into a “keeping up with the Highlanders” mind set I want someone in this organization that has some creativity and foresight to market the team as it should “The Flagship Team of the National League” For years NYC was an NL town. The Highlanders had fans but didn’t ‘t draw as many to the ballpark as the Dodgers, Giants or Mets, but the last decade or so that’s changed and the Mets have just say back and taken it under the Skill Sets leadership. Maybe now is time for a change just like in the White House maybe after almost 30 years of owning the team it may be time for the Skill Sets to get out.

    I hope they have to sell the team and the only guy interested is Mark Cuban !!!

    He is a “kook” I know…but it would make for interesting “theater”.

  2. Nellie DD had The Capital. Freddie was The Tag Along who got in the way:

    & Now Jeffy follows in Ol’ Skill Sets Mode;

    I Think The WRONG Ownership is in charge

    The Citi Fied name just reeks of failure…do the right thing and name it Ebbets Field Reuex… because that is what it is.

    couldn’t agree more, the wilpons never get called out for their ineptitude. and always seem to be willing to take a back seat to the skanks from the bx. i would love to see them step up and sign manny, but they don’t have the balls. its as if they are afraid to win.
