I'm pretty sure the radio is wrong. The Mets payed off their debt to Vaughn and a ton of it was picked up by insurance. The Mets got off pretty well salary-wise but the insurance company got rocked. It led to the unofficial rule of not insuring contracts longer than three years, IIRC.
I'm pretty sure our payroll is hovering somewhere around 85-90 million although with Piazza off the books this year some of that will open up.
