Bobby Bonilla is about to add insult to injury. The beleaguered Mets -- hammered by Bernie Madoff's fraud, free-agent flops and ballpark tumbleweeds -- will soon start forking over $1.2 million annually for 25 years to the paunchy, 48-year-old ex-slugger who hasn't picked up a bat in a decade. Bonilla, a notorious malcontent who bombed on and off the field for the not-so-Amazin's in the 1990s, will start collecting his nearly $30 million windfall on July 1. Thanks to a deferred deal he inked with the clueless club in 2000, he'll collect seven-figure checks through 2035. Not that Bobby Bo is short on dough. He pocketed some $50 million during his career, which included two stints in New York, and resides in an $8 million mansion in Greenwich, Conn.

On the day the WTA announced its new "strong is beautiful" campaign, Serena Williams is under unnecessary fire for putting up, and quickly removing, a sexy Twitter avatar.
Williams put up the picture of herself standing in high heels and wearing nothing more than matching undergarments on Thursday afternoon. She took it down hours later, but not before the criticism began.
