BMF heard the best Met news I’ve gotten in quite a while: New York Times reported the Mets “might have to confront the prospect of selling the team entirely.”
WOW that is music to my ears. How fantastic would it be to rid this wants to be great franchise of the ineptitude of the Wilponzis.
The latest news is the Mets needed to borrow another $40 million in what’s being termed a “bridge loan”. In theory it’s to help them keep operating while they try to raise funds through by selling minority shares in the team.
According to NYT the inside word is “if a full lineup of minority stake investors was not in place by next spring, and cash not in hand, [Fred Wilpon] and [Saul Katz] might have to confront the prospect of selling the team entirely.”
Obtw the Mets were unable to pay back their original $25 million loan from Major League Baseball.
Of course with Alderson revealing they lost $70 million in 2011 no wonder they were never in on the Reyes bidding.
In fact I think this makes it painfully obvious the Mets were NEVER so much as considering bringing Jose back it was merely a smoke screen to try and deflect a complete tsunami of bad PR.
It’s a pathetic state that we’re in when the owners of the Mets are reviled by the entire fan base.
But if we could be so lucky as to have the Wilpons sell we would really have a chance of turning this loser franchise around.
So I emplore any/all Met fans from to refrain from giving them ANY MONEY WHATSOEVER. I realize the few bucks they may make off of holiday merchandise is likely inconsequential to their multi-multi-million dollar problems but now is the time for Met fans to untie in a concerted effort to CLEAN HOUSE of OWNERSHIP!!!!!
Pleeeeezeee Santa all I want for Christmas is the Wilpons to fail to raise enough money and be forced to sell… Is that so much to ask?
