In news for the sentimental at heart, the Mets have signed Jason Isringhausen to a minor league deal. Isringhausen was drafted by the Mets more than 20 years ago, and was part of Generation K along with Bill Pulsipher and Paul Wilson. Isringhausen hasn't pitched since 2009, and is also recovering from Tommy John surgery. Chris Capuano, Taylor Buchholz, and now Jason Isringhausen...notice a trend?
The New York Times reports that Donald Trump has expressed interest in buying the team. He confirms that he called Fred Wilpon more than two weeks ago to discuss the potential sale of the team in a face-to-face meeting. The meeting has not happened, and Trump would only be interested in buying a majority stake in the team.
I just want to see Trump fire people "Apprentice" style. I'm crossing my fingers for that reason alone. But in all seriousness, I think if any person had the money to bail out the Mets, and bring in people that want this team to win a pennant, it would be Trump.
That and maybe we Met fans can find out if his hair is real.
