This is why so much of the LAC stuff seems ridiculous to me.  The Mets are an organizational disaster right now, shouldn't we be happy the Lerners aren't whatever the Wilpons are regardless of spending? 

Yeah you're right because every organization that spends ends up like the Mets.

Not really. Their payroll has consistently been about 2X the Nationals. Plus, they have 1.5 Billion in debt which means they spent a lot of money. Mr. Lerner would never be in that much debt because he would never spend that kind of money.

They were spending imaginary Madoff money for years. If I could stick my money in a safe and it watch it just magically multiply I'd spend the crap out of it, too.

It wasn't all "imaginary" money. The Mets did generate a lot of revenue. It's not like Wilpon didn't lose money with Madoff. Without Madoff, they still would have spent quite a bit of money.

I'm right?  But when did I say that?

You didn't, but your rhetorical question may have implied a universal correlation between increased payroll and negligence/irresponsibility.

The last phrase in his post was "regardless of spending".

Further away you get from the playing field... the easier the game looks.

The last phrase in his post was "regardless of spending".

The first was "This is why so much of the LAC stuff seems ridiculous to me", so if spending is not a factor, why mention LAC?  It's a pretty clear implication.  PB may not have intended it, but it's not difficult to see why it might be read that way.

Besides, it's not like this franchise is known for it's brilliantly smooth operation :|

The Lerners are cheap, but they don't make financial mistakes. That's what I could take from it.

But I get your point.

Wow, Jayson Werth gets boo'ed. Morons.

Also, good sign that the first pitch got drilled... even if it wasn't quite far enough.
