New Yorker Joins Mets' Madoff Fray via Extensive Fred Wilpon Interview

Within a larger interview about the team, its players, and Bernie Madoff, Mets owner Fred Wilpon lets the words flow a little too freely:

Before you go calling WFAN to vent about how out of touch the Wilpons are with reality, please give Toobin's article a read. It paints a fair picture of an honest man trying to do right in his business endeavors and in the Mets' endeavors but lands himself in trouble due to misguided loyalties. Unfortunately, it also captures what feels like a terminal case of foot-in-mouth disease plaguing a Mets ownership that was oh-so-close to not antagonizing its fan base for a change.
