Fred Wilpon is loosening the purse strings next year. Mets in 2014. Its what Ive been saying for 3 years now. Here comes Wheeler, Harvey and D'Arnuad.

I'm really fed up with the Mets and particularly Fred Wilpon and Sandy Alderson after they lost out on outfielder Michael Bourn. All I keep hearing after the fact is they made a strong effort to get Bourn with a 4 year deal, but in reality there pursuit was an empty nest. If they really wanted Bourn they would have made the deal weeks ago regardless of the possible loss of losing the draft pick. Instead they decided to wait out the process which ultimately ended with Bourn signing in Cleveland. On top of that, Fred Wilpon keep saying the Bernie Madoff fiasco is behind us and we are ready to add payroll. That some statement from an owner who let Michael Morse go to Seattle, Rick Ankiel sign in Houston, never wanted to give Scott Hairston a two year deal after he hit 20 homeruns and then signed with the Cubs, and now Michael Bourn goes to the Indians.

As Usual the Mets played the waiting game as they always do and lost. With the signing of Michael Bourn to a 4 year $48 Million dollar contract with the Indians, the Mets are once again out in the cold. I am so disgusted with this franchise a team that I have rooted for 40 plus years and all we get is the same old song and dance. Michael Bourn would have given the Mets the leadoff hitter they so desperately need since Jose Reyes departed. The outfield as presently constructed Has Lucas Duda in LF and a bunch of no names vying for Center and Right field. Fred Wilpon and Sandy Alderson have once again shown us die hard Mets fans that 2013 is not going to be our year. With the Braves, Nationals and Phillies all on pace to win 90 games, the Mets will be hard pressed to win 75 games. Maybe the Mets should should look for another city to play in, because I can take this nonsense anymore.
Bud Selig has to get involved and get Fred Wilpon out as owner. Enough is enough. WIlpon's time has come and gone. Sell it to Cuban.
Michael Bourn signs with the Indians. Thx, Fred Wilpon. It's so much fun to be a Mets fan.
