This Blog was just chilling -- as the kidz say -- and wondering when exactly it was that Jeff Green became Michael Jordan. Then, it wound up on the Intertoobz and discovered what it believes is going to be a major hooley inside major-league baseball.

This Blog has no idea whether this is good or bad for baseball. What is plain is that the best thing for baseball would be for somebody to pry the Mets loose from the current ownership before they trade their new stadium for a bag of magic beans on the way to market some Sunday. And it is further evidence that, for all the huffing and blowing about large-and-small-market teams, and about "competitive imbalance" and all that rot, the primary reason that a franchise in a self-regulating, government-sanctioned monopoly gets in financial trouble is because its owners are either a) cheap, b) greedy, or c) dumb as a freaking socket wrench.

Your money's should be on "C" here.
