NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets say they have cut some of their business staff.

The team issued a statement Friday that read: “Several weeks ago, we made workforce reductions in both the baseball and business operations departments, which amounted to less than 10 percent of our full-time staff.”

New York just finished its third straight losing season and has reduced ticket prices for the third straight year. The trustee trying to recover money for victims of the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme is seeking up to $386 million from the Mets’ ownership group.
