NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some New York Mets fans are using a new strategy to try to get General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen to spend some cash on new players, according to the New York Times.
They report the die-hard fan base has been sending the general manager donations through the popular money exchange app, Venmo.
Some fans seemingly disappointed with the off-season signings have been sending donations of $1 and even 1 cent, according to the Times report.
Van Wagenen reportedly says that he has received more than 500 Venmo notifications since becoming the GM in 2018.
Van Wagenen, who gets a chuckle out of the donations also, reportedly says he has not cashed out on any of the money.
