Author (and outspoken critic of New York Mets ownership) Howard Megdal has a new book out called Wilpon’s Folly: The Story of a Man, His Fortune, and the New York Mets. It’s already gotten the attention of the New York Post and the Mets.
Megdal’s book (available for just $2.99 for the Amazon Kindle) is probably worth a read if you want to know more about ugly financial situation surrounding the Mets, though I can’t say that I particularly do. I look to baseball for entertainment; there’s enough depressing stuff of more import to most of us in the other sections of the newspaper.
Whether you want to read Wilpon’s Folly or not, I recommend that you take a look at Greg Prince‘s latest post at Faith and Fear in Flushing. It reminded me of what it felt like to be a baseball fan when I was a kid.
