Yeah, it's so obvious that the Wilpons are absolutely messed up financially. How many more loans can they take out and how much longer can Selig allow them to go under before he and the rest of the MLB has to bail them out ala the NBA and New Orleans (and look how well that has turned out)? It's only going to get worse for the Mets and I feel bad for Collins and Alderson, considering how they're trying to field a competitive team with what they're given.
Peter Gammons: "Montreal's Omar Minaya tried to swing a big deal to get Floyd and Dempster, but couldn't make the money even out, and MLB will not allow the Expos to take on any payroll." That's from yesterday.
