BASEBALL: Mo Insurance

The Daily News nails a point I've been thinking about lately: not to wish any ill to Mo Vaughn, but if Mo needs knee surgery, the Mets could wind up passing on much of the cost of his contract to their insurance company, which would relieve a huge pressure from the team.

Change in the Mets organization can't stop with firing Steve Phillips. It has to go straight to the top - Fred Wilpon is in total control of the team, and the Mets can only recover if Wilpon learns to stop pressing his GM to think short-term. This could be the shock to the system that is needed to underline that point.
