Hey folks! Once again it's that day of absurdity. Yes, it's July 1, also known as Bobby Bonilla Day.

Back in 1998, The New York Mets inked a contract with their recently reacquired Bobby Bonilla. The 1999 season arrived and he did not exactly impress. Even alleged manager at the time, Bobby Valentine had issues with Bonilla. After the dismal season ended, so did Bonilla's time with The Mets.


The Mets unfortunately still owed Bonilla a sizeable chunk of cash. Close to six million dollars. Bonilla and his manager crafted a fine deal.

In exchange for deferring the remaining amount for the following ten years, they would begin in 2011 to pay, on July 1, each year the sum of $1.19 billion dollars to Mr.Bonilla through to 2035. Final cost? $29.8 billion dollars!


Mr.Bonilla left the Mets and played a few more seasons, first with the Atlanta Braves and lastly with the St.Louis Cardinals.


Happy Pay Day, Bobby!

Alyssa Nakken coaches first base for SF Giants

On Monday night she became the first woman to coach in an on-field capacity during
a major league game when she took over as Giants first-base coach.

Nakken joined first-year Giants manager Gabe Kapler's staff in January, becoming the
first woman to hold a full-time coaching position at the major league level.

The Mets’ outfielder/designated hitter didn’t report to the ballpark for today's game
against the Braves and hasn’t communicated with anyone, the team announced.

“He did not reach out to management with any explanation for his absence,” general
manager Brodie Van Wagenen said in a statement. “Our attempts to contact him have
been unsuccessful...”

@Region Philbis,
I think the short season should do away with Leagues and the top 4 teams in each of four divisons play thewhirl series.
Ive a feeling that, by Labor day, we will only have a few dozen players and NO umpires Better install a whole bunch of GOPROS behind Lexan shields
