I really love the back page of the New York Post today.
Today was the first official day of spring training for the Mets, but that means even less than usual when most of the Mets players have been working out in Port St. Lucie for days already. Still, any sign that baseball season is on the way is welcome…Let’s go Mets!
“Several weeks ago, we made workforce reductions in both the baseball and business operations departments, which amounted to less than 10 percent of our full-time staff,” the team said in a statement.
I wonder if this is another case of the Post looking for a way to boost readership by burying the Mets, or if it’s another sign of financial troubles in Flushing. Either would be easy enough to believe.
In any case, I hope that the 15 (or however many) unemployed workers are able to find new jobs.
