Assuming you don’t get the obscure pop culture reference in the title, Fred Wilpon is more than too sexy for the Mets; he’s too tired, too jaded, and too fated for failure.
The Mets are handling Fred Wilpon’s critical comments about his top players “internally.” Scott Boras has a different approach.
Jose Reyes isn’t worth all the money he wants. Carlos Beltran is no longer a top-tier player. David Wright isn’t a superstar. As Fred Wilpon’s comments continue to be the hot topic, the Mets said in a statement: “We are handling the matter internally.”
Mets fans might find themselves stunned after reading Jeffrey Toobin’s epic profile of Fred Wilpon in the latest issue of The New Yorker. At times Wilpon sounds more like a jilted fan than the owner of New York’s National League franchise.
Jeffrey Toobin authored the article in the latest edition of the The New Yorker — a piece that is almost certain to rock the Mets’ already fragile existence.
Fred Wilpon, Mets chairman and chief executive, recently sat down with Jeffrey Toobin of the The New Yorker for a little chat — and it’s safe to say that Wilpon has not lost any passion for his team.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? According to New Yorker Magazine it’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
