There was a time, not too long ago, when if one were to suggest in a post on this blog that the Mets financial situation was dire, as opposed to merely being a troublesome, short-term cash flow annoyance, and that the Wilpons’ hold on the team was in serious jeopardy, as opposed to merely being subject to some moderate restructuring, that:
(a) a certain commenter who seems overly-invested in defending the Wilpons for someone not in their employ would show up here and claim that you were a fubulist; and
(b) the writer of such a post would receive emails from various people in official capacities claiming that he was being unduly harsh in his assessments with respect to the state of the Mets.
Given that Fred Wilpon is himself saying such things right now, however, I suppose it’s safe for me to pass this along from the New York Daily News without having to field such criticism:
It is unknown whether, in the Sports Illustrated article, Wilpon once again loses the thread of the interview and slams Johan Santana or Francisco Rodriguez.
