So, thinking about investing in the Mets? About that …

This is fun. Adam Gross from the Metsonline blog talked to a financial industry source to get an assessment of the merits of those minority stakes the Mets are trying to sell off. Click through for the detailed comments of the financial guy. In the meantime, here is the upshot:

He basically responded saying that no one should want to become a minority owner because the benefits that you get from becoming an owner are available for a much cheaper sum and the investment has essentially no upside.

But hey, discounts on foam fingers and stuff.

Anyway, why do I feel like this is going to end much like Tom Hicks’ gambit of selling off minority shares in the Rangers a couple of years ago?  With the whole team for sale.

Braves place Sean Newcomb on concussion injured list

The Atlanta Braves placed pitcher Sean Newcomb on the seven-day concussion list retroactive to Tuesday.

Newcomb was hit in the back of the head by a 102 m.p.h. line drive off the bat of J.T. Realmuto on Saturday night. The ball hit him so hard that it ricocheted to the screen behind the Phillies dugout. Despite that, Newcomb passed post-incident concussion tests and said he felt fine. It can take a little bit for concussion symptoms to become apparent, however, and that’s likely what happened here.

The Braves called up right-hander Huascar Ynoa from Triple-A Gwinnett to take Newcomb’s place on the roster.
