Wow! Now even the guys who were supposed to save the Mets are dirty.
According to Heyman David Einhorn & firm were fined $11M by UK authorities for trading on insider info.
Could you imagine the jokes that would ensue if Wilpon and the Mets were now legally tied to Einhorn?
One has to wonder if the Wilpons caught wind of this and walked away from the deal. I doubt the Wilponzis would be savvy enough to learn of Einhorns dirt but maybe MLB uncovered something and the deal was killed.
Admittedly I don’t know the details but if fines were levied there must have been an investigation going on for a while, right? I mean you don’t just hit someone with an 11 M fine without some serious due dilligence.
