FRED WILPON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Grinch Wilpon is giving us coal in our stockings

We were very good this year. We came out to Citi Field in increasing numbers and spent our hard-earned money on $10 cans of Budweiser and $6 hot dogs. We boosted TV ratings on SNY and purchased every playoff round’s unique $30 t-shirt. Yet instead of getting the speedy leadoff hitter (Denard Span or Dexter Fowler) or run producer (Yoenis Cespedes or Justin Upton) the fan base...

The Emperor’s Not So New Close

Bob Klapisch of Newsday didn’t take too kindly to Fred Wilpon ducking several interview requests after a closed door meeting with the team on Monday.

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...
