    Wait Einhorn/Wilpons control the team Oct-July, right?u00a0 Because the Phillies have always owned the Mets in August and September.

    Dropping $200M of your own coin the same day you erase $50M of clientu00a0assets on your new stake in Sprint is the NKIu00a0

    you got that wrong.u00a0 it is the lowly marlins and the nationalsu00a0that own the mets when the summer starts to cool.u00a0 it is the phillies that remind them what they might be with the right type of team.

    Honestly, I wouldn't care much what I eat ice cream out of as long as it's clean. I'm more worried about what our massachusetts dentists would say.
