    Reading the Wall Street Journal and New York Times articles, there seems to be no way that the Wilpons will hold on to the Mets. While Madoff rots in jail, they have real money for the Trustee to go after. It is a matter of time.

    I hope Stu stays with the Rays and figures out a way to keep the team in the area and actually reinvest some of his profits on the Rays payroll. But you have to think he's at least kicking the tires on the Mets acquisition.
