New players’ union chief Tony Clark did not use the harsh language his predecessors sometimes did when discussing the New York Mets’ paltry payroll, but he indicated there is an awareness of the lack of spending.
The Mets enter the season with roughly an $87 million payroll, which is estimated to be seventh-lowest in MLB, despite playing in the game’s largest market.
“Let me offer you this: If there are concerns, what often ends up happening is we have an opportunity, along with Major League Baseball, to sit down and discuss perhaps what the game plan might be or could be going forward,” said Clark, who played for the Mets in 2003.
“Is New York one of the marquee franchises? Yes. Will they always be? Yes. Are we paying attention in general? Yes.”
Hope he has some magnifying glasses!
