This Week In Baseball History

Nov 17, 2021

That the Mets have won anything, given their leadership over the last 60 seasons, is amazing. The worst of that leadership rose to prominence 35 years ago this week, as minority owner Fred Wilpon purchased half of the club from The Doubleday Publishing Company. To go through all the nepotism and corruption requires a guide, so Mike and Bill turn to Howard Megdal, author of Wilpon’s Folly: The Story of a Man, his Fortune, and the New York Mets. Plus, happy birthday to Randy Poffo and Mike Garcia!
