FRED WILPON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Moment of Silence, Lifetime of Embarrassment

Nelson Doubleday Jr., died Wednesday at his home in New York. He was 81. Two days after his death, the Mets announced they would honor Doubleday with a moment of silence. A moment of silence? A moment? Doubleday was the majority owner of the New York Mets from 1980-2002. He lifted the Mets out of the financial and competitive abyss of the late 1970s and early 1980s and, in six years...

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred was a guest on WFAN Radio on Tuesday and gave Mets owner Fred Wilpon another vote of confidence, portraying him as a victim who has been treated unfairly. “I do understand that that undercurrent is out there. I really don’t believe it’s fair, however. The most important point is this: At this point in Major League Baseball, I...

We Need To See More Of Fred Wilpon

I figured Mets owner Fred Wilpon would be around Tradition Field Monday afternoon considering commissioner Rob Manfred was in Port St. Lucie. What you didn’t expect was for Wilpon to talk with manager Terry Collins in his office for about 20 minutes after the game. Collins said Wilpon would be a regular presence during spring training. Let’s hope so. And, let’s hope he doesn’t...

Going Bowling With The Mets

The Pinstripe Bowl is currently taking place at Yankee Stadium, which leads to the obvious question: Why can’t the New York Mets host their own college bowl game? Or, perhaps make a bid to host the NHL’s Winter Classic at Citi Field? Are you telling me the NCAA can’t fit in one more bowl game, hosted by the Mets and Citi Bank? I can’t believe that for a second. Fred Wilpon...
