There is now an Amway store in Citi Field. Seriously.

The Wilpons almost lost their team thanks to their relationship with a ponzi schemer. They’re now getting rent from what many people have described as a pyramid scheme. New York Mets: meet Amway.  Howard Megdal reports:

Amid fresh reports that the Mets are still in debt, Amway has moved into a storefront at Citi Field … The Citi Field outpost is Amway’s first storefront in America. On Saturday, Amway staged a grand opening (or “grand opening”: it got no coverage, as far as I can tell) with the Amway sign just a few feet away from a Mets ticket booth.

I think they should take this further. Big swings that just miss can be referred to as “Your Cutco Knife Cut of the Day!”  Home runs can be followed up with things like “And around the bases comes David Wright with your Herbalife Home Run Trot of the Day!”

The possibilities are endless.

The New York Yankees have designated Kendrys Morales for assignment.

Morales, 36, hit just .177/.320/.242 with one homer over 19 games with New York. This after he had a disastrous run with the A’s to start the 2019 season, hitting a mere .204/.310/.259 with a lone home run and seven RBI in 126 trips to the plate. Now that Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are back there’s no room for him anyway, so it kind of doesn’t matter.

Morales had a solid year for the Blue Jays last season, posting a .769 OPS with 21 homers across 130 games, but it’s hard to see him catching on anyplace right now. Indeed, it may be the end of the line for the 13-year veteran.
