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.

And the reported surge in ticket sales would...

Manfred, man: Wilpon named chairman of finance committee

The big this weekend, as usual, had nothing to do with the Mets acquiring a shortstop, and once again had everything to do with Fred Wilpon and finances.  Except this time, the news is that Fred Wilpon has been selected by Commissioner-elect Rob Manfred as the new chairman of the finance committee, as first reported by Bill Madden of the New York Daily News.
