New York Knows Bobby Bonilla Day! Who Else Gets Paid Like Him?
He hasn't played for the New York Mets since 1999. Yet, he will make more this season than Mets starting pitcher David Peterson. This is a story that stems from greed. At the time, Mets ownership, led by Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, were invested with their close friend Bernie Madoff. Things were great with Fred and Saul basking in fabricated double-digit returns.
