Mets Notes: Wilpon, Castillo, Perez

Mets owner Fred Wilpon told reporters in Florida that he and his family will be "vindicated" in the $1 billion lawsuit against them, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. Here's the latest on the Mets, both on and off the field:

  • Jeff Wilpon said yesterday that interest in buying a minority share in the Mets is high, according to Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger
  • When asked about selling the team outright, Fred repeated what Jeff said yesterday: "selling this team is not even being discussed." (Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reporting on Twitter). 
  • Word is that Oliver Perez will get more time to prove himself this spring than Luis Castillo, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (on Twitter). Both players are in danger of being released if they don't perform.

Let Donald Trump buy some shares!!!! Don’t mind the USFL thing; Its apples to oranges in my opinion.

The team is a shambles. They have been horribly run and with such revenue in the NY area it is ridiculous that they have allowed themselves to crumble to such a lousy franchise. What a waste.

With the revenue and opportunities of NY this team is pitiful. The fact that the Wilpons have allowed this team to become such a lousy franchise is pitiful. Maybe brining in Alderson is the first sign of turning things around, but I have been hoping they would lose majority ownership.

obvious that perez will get more time to prove something he gets paid more

What more is there to prove for Oliver? “I’m really bad… don’t believe me… watch THIS.”

Why are people still critizing Castillo for his little measly 4 year 26 million dollar deal? Guy gets paid a 1/4 of what some other overpaid, underperforming players get, but they don’t get ragged on.

It’s true they’re nuts. Nothing scares me more as a Met fan. I’m scared to give them money.

Usually I’ve disagreed with your posts but this is 100% true. I’m a Mets fan thru and thru but after shelling out $300+ to go to see a AAA/AAAA Mets team in 2009 I’d rather stay home and watch.

I’d rather not watch at all, but alas, I can’t help myself.

The sooner the Wilpons are out, the better for everyone.
