If this is indeed true, can someone please explain how this makes sense for both the short-term financial health and long-term planning for the New York Mets? Because I’m completely befuddled.
Yes, F-Mart has been a grave disappointment. But he’s still only 23 years old, and he’s not owed anything above the MLB minimum. Similarly, but to a lesser extent, Herrera is 27 years old and also a minimum-salary guy. Meanwhile, both Cedeno and Hairston are over 30 and will make over a million bucks.
Take all the time and words you need to explain this logic to me, because clearly, I’m too stupid to understand. Thank you.
