Mets Notes: Bay, Elvin Ramirez, Loan

Jason Bay makes his season debut for the Mets tonight, and hopefully he can inject some offense into an offense that ranks 12th in the NL with 4.00 runs per game.  The latest links involving the team:

  • Joel Sherman of the New York Post talks about the Mets' need for Bay to add some life to the club, with the team's clubhouse already giving out a mathematically-eliminated vibe.
  • Elvin Ramirez, the 23-year-old reliever taken by the Nationals from the Mets in the December Rule 5 draft, received a cortisone injection in his shoulder last week according to this tweet from Adam Kilgore of the Washington PostESPN's Adam Rubin attempts to decipher the situation, tweeting that Ramirez "must spend 90 non-September says active on 25-man roster to become Nats property."
  • Commissioner Bud Selig said the $25MM the Mets borrowed from MLB is due back before the end of the season, and he's confident the team will make the payment, according to this tweet from Brian Costa of The Wall Street Journal.

    Why can’t Selig force a sale of the Mets like he is (eventually) doing with the Dodgers? Please God let that happen.

      Because the Mets didn’t need to get a $200M loan.

        No… The Mets need more than $200m dollars…

        • icedrake523 4 years ago

          Who doesn’t? The point is they still have enough money to operate the team. McCourt doesn’t have that luxury.

            They won’t if they lose the one billion dollar lawsuit…

          • icedrake523 4 years ago

            That won’t be settled for a LONG time. They probably won’t lose all $1B that Picard is trying to get.

        they are selling 25% of their team… they took out a 25m loan from Major League Baseball, and they’re facing a $1 billion lawsuit…

      That’s all I’ve been saying since the lawsuit implicating them in the Madoff scheme broke.

      Still…if/when all those debts come crashing down and make Selig’s genero$ity and confidence in Fred Wilpon’s ability to rebound financially make him look, well…stupid, he may have no choice!

    • Because he and Selig are buds, Selig is a very transparent individual.

  2. Some offense into an offense? That hurt my brain.

    See… There’s always a silver lining!

  4. Seems more like copper to me.
