  • Re: Asian giant for HC

    [quote user="giantyankee1976"]

    Man, no lie, the FIRST thing that came to mind is:
    Mets fold, bring back the beloved Dodgers...

    Not going to happen though. Nicholson would have a coniption.

    (No offense resident Mets fans.)

    And on another level will this set a new precedent in pro-sports? Almost a totalalitarian rule?[/quote]


    I hope not. But I'm sure as part of the contract of owning a baseball team, owners must be able to run the team themselves and have some kind of stable financing.

    I don't think MLB wants to get into the business of running the teams themselves. It does seem like a "sports bailout" though doesn't it?

      It's a first for MLB..."The Boss" [George Stienbrenner] and Marge Schott [Reds] were allowed to pick their replacements</P>

      Gotta wonder how the Mets are going to come out of the financial trouble their owners are in?</P>


      Are they next?</P>

          My grand father brought me to my 1st Dodger game in '53. He got me a ball signed by all the '53 Bums... I treasured it and was so danged proud that summer when my buddies and me needed a ball for a pick-up game in the park... we all ooohed and aaahed at all the sigs... Furillo, Snider, Campy, Newcome, Erskine, Jackie, Pee Wee, Gil... and then we used it until the cover literally came off. Who knew back then?</P>

                          Yea...My Dad grew up in Brooklyn before joining the Air Force[ Army Air Corp] during WWII. They moved to Levittown after the war. He never lost his enthusiasm for"Dem Bums" {Brooklyn Dodgers] till they moved to L.A...........He always despised Walter O'Malley [owner] ,as didthe entire Brooklyn fanbase, for moving the team out west</P>


                          "Walter O'Malley is a"BUM" was one of his favorite quotes lol</P>
