The ownership of the New York Mets continues to be a hot debate. The Wilpon family thought they reached an agreement with a potential buyer. Unfortunately, negotiations fell apart with hedge-fund investor Steve Cohen.
Since 2002, the family has had ownership of the New York Mets. While the Wilpon’s wanted to alter the terms of the deal, there is no true frontrunner to buy the Mets. However, some names have come up in the rumor mill, including former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez and funny-man Jerry Seinfeld. Yes, the same guy who made a show about nothing.
Lifelong New Yorker and avid Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld has no interest in buying the New York Mets. The comedian was asked by TMZ Sports if he considered owning his beloved baseball team. Seinfeld was insistent that he would rather have fun being a fan than spending time owning a team.
According to Forbes, Seinfeld has a net worth of $950 million. That kind of money would be ideal for him to become a minority owner of his beloved baseball team. Mets fans will have to wait and see who will step up and take over the reins from the Wilpons. For now, Seinfeld is more interested in watching the Mets compete now and into the future.
