Citi To Bail on Deal? Manny Ramirez Rejects LA...Bruce Springsteengate

Mets PoliceSenior Analyst IFebruary 3, 2009

The Wall Street Journal reports that Citi is considering backing out of the Mets deal.   I love saying "told you so" so "told you so." For the millionth time, all the Mets need to do is re-do the deal so the money is on the back end and everyone will look cooperative and respectful of taxpayers.

Jackie Robinson Stadium here we come (until they rename it after the Not So Great Depression ends) Story here.

The Ledger quotes the LA Times as saying Manny rejected one year for $25M.  Hey Mets, you need media coverage on the Citi thing. Good time to offer Manny two for $25M. If he rejects it you shut up the fans.  If he accepts you win the pennant.

Finally, I will guess many Mets fans are Springsteen fans. Did you have problems with Ticketmaster yesterday? Some folks are making accusations.
