The Mets must follow a comprehensive plan that incorporates the club’s financial wherewithal (annual revenue estimated at $158 million), the primacy of a strong farm system (cheap parts allow extraordinary flexibility), and the demands of the New York market.
Although the Mets finally dumped their untalented and overpaid outfielder on the St. Louis Cardinals this off-season, he remains on the Flushing payroll, pulling down 9 million bucks for doing nothing but serving as a reminder of the club’s recent bumbling profligacy.
