I was crestfallen when I first got news the Wilpons settled the clawback lawsuit and now suddenly were locked in to remain owners of the Mets forever.
According to Fatcessa the Met owners comprised about half of the silent investors who bought a total of twelve 20M dollar shares.
This was because they couldn’t legally use money from any other business to support the Mets during this entire debacle so they “inbezzled” their own money into their own baseball team.
I don’t know if any of that is true, nor do I know how that fat pig Francessa would know any of this but it sure does make sense.
Personally I’m heartbroken because I know this ensures that Rich Rich Jeffy Boy Wilpon will eventually take full control of the franchise. And once Fred is dead and buried there will be no safety net to protect us all from Jeffy Boy getting involved again in player personnel decisions.
I’m convinced he’ll try and be Jerry Jones only he doesn’t have any of Jerry Jones’ intellect, moxie, or savviness.
I really fear the day when Fred passes away.
