Article attributed to Madden: Mets only interested in signing low budget Latin players

SS

Update 8:08pm.   The article no longer has the word latin in the paragraph mentioned here.  I comment on that change, and you can compare it to the new version here.


Wow this really caught my eyes....here's Bill Madden in today's news.

Mets? Did somebody say the Mets? They won't spend the money for Holliday, Bay or Lackey and apparently, they're only interested in signing low-budget Latin players, having shown little or no interest in Byrd, Figgins, DeRosa, Wolf or even Staten Island's Jason Marquis, while waiting for their markets to come to them. At the same time, the Phillies and Braves wasted no time in addressing their needs. Sad.

The Mets are "only interested in signing low-budget Latin players?"  Not low budget players of any ancestry?  That's usually WFAN caller or even blogger talk.   A respected newspaper writer inserted the word Latin into the copy?   Are the Omar conspiracists right?

Hey,

Whats up with this? Are you sure it said 'Latin'? When you click on the link there's no mention of it. Would the DN revise it?

It absolutely did. I couldn't believe it and even emailed it some friends because it seemed an odd thing for the Daily News' website to say.

Kranepool Society mentioned it as 'Latin' as well. The DN must have gotten some heat.
