The Mets being the Mets

According to Cot's Baseball contracts (depending on whether you count Daniel Murphy as an OF, which I don't), the Mets 2 highest paid Outfielders this season will be... Jason Bay at $21,125,000 (playing for the Mariners) and Bobby Bonilla at $1,193,248.20 ( Retired since 10/7/2001).

The best part is it's not even close, Lucas Duda is their highest paid OF who is still on the team at $497,218.

Also after running the numbers on Bobby Bonilla's contract, if they had just paid the $5.9 M up front in 2000, it would have cost them $6.5 M less in 2000 dollars than what they will have paid by the end of 2035.

I love mocking the Mets, it's just so easy.

As I once overheard a father tell his son on the escalator to the 7 train on my way to see the Braves:

Son- "Dad why is the 7 train all the way in the basement below all the other trains?"

Father- "Because its for the Mets fans; they feel more at home in the basement."
