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.
Obviously they don't think it's the same; I would presume that's because baseball stadiums are way way bigger than football/hockey arenas. Don't get me wrong; if they *can* do it based on best record, I'm 100& for that.
