Cover picture for the articleWith the Wilpons out of the picture in Queens, Bobby Bonilla Day has changed. No longer is paying more than $1 million every July 1 to a guy who retired in 2001 something never to be talked about, a source of shame for owners who got involved in Bernie Madoff’s infamous Ponzi scheme and thought that the deferred money on a free-agent flop’s contract would simply be paid out of the interest they were earning on investments. Under Steve Cohen, it’s now a chance to look back and have a chuckle. The new owner, after all, is a legitimate billionaire, for whom Bonilla’s annual payout can be fished out from under a couch cushion.
