The Wilpons MUST Sell The New York Mets
For years now, us fans of the New York Mets have been forced to deal with an ownership who thinks their team is a small market team by not putting any money out into their product in the world's most famous city. The New York Mets have a net worth of $811 million as of March 2013 (Forbes) but are a laughing stock due to owners Fred Wilpon and others trying to get the maximum value for as little investment as possible which is tying the hands of the General Manager Sandy Alderson and we constantly hear X amount of dollars will be available per season but X changes to Y which changes to Z. The fan base has had enough of the lies, the false hopes, and being forced fed mockery from the current owners as they increase price values of everything for a product that doesn't deserve to be on television other than David Wright, Matt Harvey, Jonathon Neise, and a few others. Many life long fans as well as season ticket holders are boycotting the New York Mets not because it's the team's fault, it's the lack of responsibility the owners refuse to take for the huge decline in the Mets franchise history. Let us not forget The Wilpons taking part in a Ponzi scheme which has set them back over $300 million and had to borrow money from MLB to pay for expenses. It's sad to say though that Bud Selig, the current President of MLB is good friends with the Wilpons and is refusing to force them to sell the team for the benefit of MLB itself yet he can force Frank Mc.Court to sell the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012 for the benefit of the Dodgers franchise. As long as the Wilpons own the Mets, expect further attendance drops, emptier stadiums, and rising prices to compensate along with horrible giveaways at an attempt to entice someone to return to the beautiful ballpark known as Citi Field.
