SELL SKILL SETS, SELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How would you like to be Frank McCourt today? The owner of the LA Dodgers has a shit load of money problems due to his nasty divorce and he is trying hard to hold on to his share of the team.  FOX has offered to loan him $200 mil to help keep that Dodgers going until his divorce is final and a judge rules who owns the team Frank or his soon to be ex -wife Jamie but Bud Selig put the kibosh on the deal.

Now today we learn that the Skill Sets were fronted between $20-$25 million bucks to pay the bills at Citi Field from Bud Selig. Hummmmmm if I were say David Glass of the KC Royals, Bob Nutting of the Pirates or Mets fan/Tampa Bay Rays owner Stu Sternberg, I’d be pretty pissed off knowing I’m part of the funding of a team in the largest market of the country. But then again, Freddy and Uncle Saul are Bud’s BFF’s, so Selig has put aside his job as Commissioner and has turned a blind eye to the “best interest of baseball” commandment that gets played in time of crisis, and right now Mets fans the Skill Sets are on the brink of crisis.

Freddy and Jeffey were chirping on the opening of camp about being victims and being duped and proclaiming vindication when the dust settles on the Madoff trustee lawsuit, but they forgot one other important item, they will have to sell the team when it’s all said and done.

You have to believe that the Skill Sets will not be the owners of the New York Mets by this time next year, or even sooner. With all the stories that come out ever few days on the financial status of the team especially today’s revelation of money floated to pay the Mets bills, I cast my vote of No Confidence in the Skill Sets to running this team. If this were any other owner, Selig would have had him in a headlock screaming “SELL GOD DAMN IT SELL” but because it’s Freddy and Uncle Saul he will do by any means necessary to help them keep ownership of this team. Best interest of baseball, my ass.

This story would have been bad enough, but when you add the bluster by Freddy and Jeffy in their St Lonesome presser’s, it’s an absolute insult to you and me. I’d love to grab Freddy, Jeffy and Uncle Saul by the collective scruff of their necks and scream at them to be truthful with us.

They want our money, they want our support and we are willing to give it to them and all we ask is to be truthful and stop taking us for assholes. We didn’t sink our fortune with a thieving scumbag, like you did.

Freddy always sings the siren song of loving the Mets and wants the team to stay in his family for generations, well here is a smack in the face of reality for you Freddy, that ship has sailed, when you got fucked over by your “pal” Bernie Madoff and he’s the one you will cost you of your dream.

SELL THE TEAM SKILL SETS, SELL THE TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Who says there’s any value left in the Mets at this point? How much debt and legal liability is attached to the Mets (as opposed to the Wilpon family & Saul Katz)?

    Finding a buyer may be easier said than done.

  2. A bio on the Wilpons is soon to be written. It will stop at chapter 11.

  3. Paul, the value has been for the past five years in SNY. The team and the building,as well as the network are all interwoven. At this point, I know how hard this will be for them, but they need to just sell already. They will practically be able to name their price. One of these decades, we as Mets’ fans will actually go back to focusing on the actual stuff that goes on on the field.
