Sports chatter: Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!

Bonilla, 57, batted .160 with the Mets, which led to a buyout of his contract. Instead of paying the final $5.9 million he was owed, the Mets decided to pay Bonilla nearly $1.2 million every year on July 1 from 2011-2035. The total amounts to about five times the money he would’ve been owed had the Mets just made one upfront payment.
