Happy Bobby Bonilla Day! Only 13 more years until he’s off the payroll

It’s July 1, which means it’s time for Bobby Bonilla to cash another fat check from the Wilpons.

The 59-year-old former slugger continues to relish in the outcome of the Wilpon family’s mistakes. For the 12th consecutive year, Bonilla is collecting $1,193,248.20 from the Mets.

Bonilla played for the Mets from 1992 to 1995 before being traded to the Orioles, who also make annual payments to Bonilla.

He returned for one more year in 1999 and was released at the end of that season.

The team only owed him $5.9 million at the time of his release, but decided to defer his contract until 2035 at eight percent interest.

For a team that is being paid $259,963,026 in 2022, thanks to new owner Steve Cohen, Bonilla’s annual $1.19 million contract is nothing more than chump change.
