Not Just the Cable Money

Tom Verducci has a great column about the Mets early spending spree in the free agent and trade markets. While many feel, including myself, that the Mets were spending their way to a division title because of their new regional sports network, it's a lot more complicated then that. In some ways, it's the tail wagging the dog because they want a great product so they can present on their sports network, not because of it. On top of that, ticket sales were up last year and they have about $30 million coming off the payrolls.
