From what I understand the Mets new stadium is a go for 2009 whether or not NYC gets the Olympics. I haven't been able to get in touch with my brother and I don't live in NY anymore, so did I read this correctly? Wilpon pays for the stadium and NYC pays for the infrastructure. Then if NYC gets the Olympics the stadium seating is altered for 2012 and the Mets play in Yankee Stadium for that year and then move back in 2013.
2013. Geez, sounds like a sci-fi movie.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
