A-Rod and J-Lo want to buy the Mets


What can I say about the New York Mets? There has been a lot going on with the potential sale of the team. Now news just broke that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez might be in the market. As long as their last name is not Wilpon, I am most certainly interested in what they have to offer. 

It’s amazing the turnaround that Alex Rodriguez his head since his retirement from Major League Baseball. He went from being one of the most hated figures in the sport to one of the most beloved in a short period of time. It’s no secret that Alex Rodriguez considered signing with the Mets before signing his long-term deal with the Texas Rangers. He would eventually get traded for Alfonso Soriano. Then he won a World Series with the New York Yankees. He definitely has some business acumen, and I think his notoriety would attract some notable free agents, something the Mets have had trouble doing for the past several seasons. 

Ask for Jennifer Lopez, I wouldn’t doubt that she’d be a good owner as well, and she’s had her eggs in many baskets for a long time. She’s navigated the North American and Latin markets in music and movies, so why can’t she add sports to the mix? Once again, as long as her name is not Wilpon, then I am down. 

I’m not going to get excited about any potential salvage team until we are close to the finish line. I already got my hopes up once when Stevie Cohen almost bought the team, so I’m going to wait until the d’s are crossed and the eyes are dotted before I throw my heart back on the table.  Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. 

What do you think about Alex Rodriguez potentially buying the Mets? Tell us in the comments section below.
