Contest: Write Your Own Punchline

Fill in your own punchline:

“The Mets are not willing to eat salary in a Bartolo Colon deal. ___________________________________________.”

Some ideas to get you started:

“The Mets are not willing to eat salary in a Bartolo Colon deal. Bartolo Colon, on the other hand, is willing to eat whatever it takes.”

“The Mets are not willing to eat salary in a Bartolo Colon deal. Fortunately, the salary has already been eaten by Colon himself.”

“The Mets are not willing to eat salary in a Bartolo Colon deal. That’s like saying the Dodgers refused to order a beard trimmer when they signed Brian Wilson.”

Okay, that last one is not good. And the other two are, well, too easy. BUT THAT’S WHERE YOU COME IN! GET TO WORK!

Sources say the Mets want cash available to purchase the now lame-duck NotGraphs site to add entertainment value to their uninspiring franchise.
