Has anyone taken a look at Francisco Lindor’s wallet?
Not because he just signed a super-thick, 10-year, $341 million extension with the Mets, but because it might have “Bad Mother F—er” on it, like Jules in “Pulp Fiction.”
Lindor is going to be in New York through his age 38 season, meaning he’ll be on the back 9 of his career when the deal is all wrapped up. He would like you to know, though, that he’ll definitely be swinging that stick and striking down on opposing pitchers with great vengeance and furious anger.
Speaking with media on Thursday, Lindor answered the question: What kind of player do you think you’ll be at age 38?

“I’ll be a bad mother f’er,” Lindor said.
The Mets and Lindor struck the deal on the eve of Opening Day, the Lindor-imposed deadline on contract extension talks for 2021.
Really, it’s a great deal for Lindor for a number of reasons: The money is great for the player, he gets ahead of a bloated free-agent shortstop market, and he’ll also not have to worry about the likely pending work stoppage stemming from CBA talks this upcoming winter.
Whether Lindor will be a bad MF’er or just plain bad remains to be seen, but Lindor at least has enough confidence to believe he’ll be the former.
You know what they call a superstar shortstop in France? A Lindor with cheese. Or something.
