I always find Bobby Bonilla cards from his second stint with the Mets to be funny. He put up pretty decent numbers during his first go round, but he never lived up to being the highest paid player in baseball. I am not sure why the owners thought things would be different the second time around.
There is an annual reminder about how the Mets pay him over $1 million a year despite not playing baseball since 2001. I do not understand why this is a big deal. A lot of teams have deferred payments for players who are retired, just not as long as Bonilla's runs. I guess it only gets attention because of the Madoff scandal that made his deferred salary possible. Just Mets' owners being Mets' owners.
