As a loyal fan since 1982, this is the final straw for me. I know I will be told "good riddance" but I no longer can defend the ownership of this team, nor the yes men puppets like Sandy in the front office. This organization is a disgrace and it is shameful that it is allowed to operate in the fashion it does. Truly a sad state of affairs.
These guys in the front office has no class whatsoever. Sandy is nothing more than a two-faced, spineless suit. The Mets may wind up getting some value for Dickey if they don't screw it up, but the way they treated him was anything but professional. The treatment this man deserved was far from what he received. And that tells you all you need to know about the current front office. Low-class, penny pinching owners and a front office comprised of corporate shills.
<<" but the way they treated him was anything but professional. The treatment this man deserved was far from what he received"
You mean when they gave him a job when no other team would and within 3 years, gave him the opportunity to secure the financial future of his entire family for the rest of their lives.
I wish someone would come along and treat me that unprofessionally and poorly.
