Selig Says The Wilpons Are Doing Everything Right

Outgoing commissioner Bud Selig gave Mets owners his full endorsement and said that reducing payroll and building from within is the way to go. “As far as I’m concerned, from my perspective, I think the way the Mets are doing this thing is correct,” Selig said. “There are a lot of teams in life that spend a lot of money that don’t do well, either.
