How Bad Will It Get Before MLB Takes The Mets From The Wilpons?

I agree with everything said in this piece, but this is something baseball should have done a decade ago, and given they didn’t I find it hard to believe they can or will do anything now.

In many ways and for many reasons and for many years, the people that own the Mets obviously can’t be trusted to run a Major League Baseball team—not just trusted by the legions of defiant masochists who have stuck by the team but, more saliently, by the other image-conscious rich guys that own teams, and who know that the health of the league depends in no small part on the National League franchise in the nation’s largest media market not being run like a skunk-infested Quiznos franchise.

What Does This Mean For Keith Hernandez?

The Mets stunk, the manager is out, they have awful ownership, and I can go on. With all of that the one thing the Mets have had over the last decade is Gary, Keith, and Ron. At the end of the game today we saw this.

Do not do this to us Mex!

Updated: Maybe we can relax

Update to the Update: Keith is working the post-season!
