What does this say about the New York Mets season: A few days ago, I was able to purchase a good quality Mets cap for $1.99 from my local Price Chopper grocery store. It was marked down from $19.00. My husband said, for that price, I should have bought the whole cart. I guess he's thinking next year can't possibly be this bad. But don't we always hope that? According to The New York Post, an estimated $88 million of the Mets' current payroll is going to players on the disabled list. Thus, caps for sale at 10 cents on the dollar.
Sorry, my children. I had no idea that raising you as Mets fans would turn out to be such a curse. No wonder son John has decamped to the Red Sox.
