Sterling Enterprises Announces New Partnership: Financial Worries in the Rearview Mirror Says Wilpon

For Mother's Day/Breast cancer awareness day!
Ending months of speculation regarding the Mets financial situation, the Wilpon Family proudly announced today that they are partnering with Bumpernuts.com in an effort to raise capital in order to continue the proud family tradition of Mets ownership. As Jeff Jr. Wilpon, who headed the negotiation team, explained, "We feel the really low expectations of Mets fans--thanks to our family's history of baffling management decisions, corporate malfeasance, and general incompetence--really gave us cover to make a partnership deal that would embarrass most major league franchises outside of Kansas City and Florida."

Mets mascot gets behind his team!
"Looking around the marketplace, truckballs seem to be just the thing," Wilpon continued, "a perfect match with both the esteem in which Sterling enterprises is held in the financial community, and real value of our franchise. With this new revenue stream, Mets fans can ease their minds that the franchise will remain safely under the Wilpon family control for ever."

The Mets were mum on some of their future plans, but did release several high gloss photos of the possibilities for leveraging the fine Metropolitan brand in the near future.

    Ah, every day is April Fool's here on IMFM and sadly, most days are for the Mets too. At least Willie Harris had a nice game.

    Yes the Mets got it right with Willie Harris. He can't hurt us anymore so the theory goes.
