The Mets are late on the rent

Jan 13, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

St. Lucie County, Florida has not been paid for the naming rights they sold to the Mets’ spring training facility. The rights were purchased by a development company called Core Communities, but the county is going to meet with the Mets about it, so presumably it’s somehow the Mets’ responsibility to collect and pay the dough.  If the money doesn’t get paid, the county will issue a letter of default to the Mets.

Exclusive video of the negotiations has been sent to me from the future.

    I know this is a baseball blog but everyone please say a prayer, send good vibes or send money, any combo of the 3 to Haiti – the destruction and chaos there right now is horrifying.

    “You must pay the rent!”
    “I can’t pay the rent!”
    “You must pay the rent!”
    “I can’t pay the rent!”

    If only we had more info to know what you are talking about, that would be so dreamy………..
    In other news Los Mets did not sign Ryan Church, how Omar let another Latino get away is unbelievable.

    How can you not love this? Do you think they’re gonna pay Jason Bay now either?

    Core Field. Has a nice ring to it. And now doubt the St. Lucie attorneys are preparing to sue the New Yawkers for treble damages. Can they core a apple?

    And another wag of the finger at Bernie Madoff. Send his accountant the bill.
