Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!

Everyone knows that the Mets will be paying Bobby Bonilla deferred money until sometime in the middle of this century.  But what most people don’t know is that those deferred payments actually begin today!

I was reminded of that by Ducky Medwick (not that Ducky Medwick) of the Deadballers website, who recalls the contract provision that everyone who wants to hate on the Mets reaches for even though there are way worse contracts given out by teams all the time, even if they’re not as unorthodox.

Anyway, if I’m Bobby Bo, I go to a bar in New York tonight and yell “drinks on the Mets!” and make about 100 new friends.
