Well there goes any hopes of the Wilpons being forced to sell the Mets completely.
In other news, the Wilpons are in negotiations with three others on the purchase of the minority stake in the Mets. Seriously? Can we get this over with already? Apparently, David Einhorn is being a hardass on some things. So the Wilpons are seeing what else is out there for them.
Adam Rubin feels it will be done by August
I'm still hearing #Mets minority sale to David Einhorn should be completed and close in August, as Bud Selig said would be the case.
