The Mets are a joke and refuse to admit their real problem

Fred and Jeff Wilpon owners New York Mets

The situation has become unsustainable.  It's time for Major League Baseball to step in and force Fred and Jeff Wilpon to sell the Mets. 
It's been done before when Franck McCourt was forced to sell the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2001.  It's about time it happened again. 

Joel Sherman of the NY Post writes:   


The Mets are the organization that shoots itself in the foot then goes in search of the gunman.

They think bad things are happening to them rather than because of themselves.

“Is there any treatment for a virus? You just have to let it run its course.”

That was Mickey Callaway speaking about — no really, this is not made up — Noah Syndergaard’s hand, foot and mouth disease and what could be done for it. But it fits the Mets, too. They have endured a virus for decades now in which their media, medical and player relations are hopelessly sick with no signs of running its course.

Mets assistant general manager John Ricco was given the role Sunday to explain another 48 hours in which the Mets did everything short of throw pies in each other’s faces. It would have been more merciful if he were given a blindfold and cigarette.
