And the Cubs? They have about the same projected payroll in the third largest market.
Aren't the Cubs seen as having a plan
Aren't the Cubs seen as having a plan (shed the horrible old contracts and bring in good, young talent)
If it wasn't for the Dodgers/Angels the players might very well have done some serious grumbling by now. The Yankees basically blew their wad on a Japanese player and the Cubs and Mets have been silent for quite a while now. Meanwhile a bunch of teams that have signed new mega TV contracts haven't really gone full insane like they used to in the past in the free agent market.
The Post recently reported that a current [Mets] team loan, due to be refinanced, had payroll constraints written into the terms by lenders.
"No, we are not aware of that," said Clark, who spoke with media in Port St. Lucie after the union had its annual meeting with players.
The Mets also have disputed that reported language.
Clark also offered on that subject: "We're not consulted necessarily on the loans that are made by clubs, but we can appreciate when there is special language or special covenants in any particular loan and how that may manifest itself in the decision-making. Those are conversations that we will always have."
