New York Knows Bobby Bonilla Day! Who Else Gets Paid Like Him?
New York Knows Bobby Bonilla Day! Who Else Gets Paid Like Him?
He hasn't played for the New York Mets since 1999. Yet, he will make more this season than Mets starting pitcher David Peterson. This is a story that stems from greed. At the time, Mets ownership, led by Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, were invested with their close friend Bernie Madoff. Things were great with Fred and Saul basking in fabricated double-digit returns. So, they made a historically laughable agreement when they wanted to jettison Bobby Bonilla prior to the 2000 season. One that has gone down in sports history as Bobby Bonilla Day.

Going deep into games in today's version of Major League Baseball, I would guess would be a pitcher getting into the 6th inning. Before, if you didn't complete 6 innings, it wasn't considered a quality start. Today, New York Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman went "old school." Stroman plunked the first batter of the game and then basically shut the Cincinnati Reds down.

One could try to pick a "turning point" in last night's crazy game between the New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds but it wouldn't be easy. Right from the start, the Mets scored 3 runs in the top of the first off of Reds starter Vladimir Gutierrez. Great start right? Well, New York's starter, journeyman Jerad Eickoff, decided to give the runs all back to Cincinnati, plus one, in the bottom of the first and so the game went from there.
