Mets say they're ready for some more FAIL

Wilpon described the 2010 payroll as "whatever Omar needs"


Hubbuch quotes Minaya saying he's "open to changing the core" of the team.


SI's Jon Heyman senses the Mets will have a $140-150MM payroll in 2010.

Rough year to blow up the payroll. Holliday, Abreu, Lackey, Harden and umm not much. I guess the good thing is that half their team are 40 year old free agents anyways so they were going to have to rebuild anyways.

I'd rather my ownership try and fail, then not try at all like some teams.

I thought the Mets were short on cash after the Wilpons got swindled for 700 million? :-?

qft but doesn't apply to the Mets, not like we were carrying like 80 million dollars worth of dead weight like the '08 Yankees.
