Alderson and Wright Glad Mets Owners Reached Settlement
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said “there’s a sense of relief for the team” now that a settlement was reached in the Bernie Madoff case. Alderson told reporters at Digital Domain:
“From just an overall organizational standpoint, the landscape today is a lot brighter than it was two or three days ago, going into a potential three-week trial. Obviously we’re very happy for Fred and Saul. And putting something behind us that has been an overhang for the franchise for well over a year — just about from the time I arrived — I think is a real plus.”
Alderson said he’s focused on putting a better product on the field and moving forward and hopes fans can move forward as well:
“I think we as a franchise have a chance to go through sort of an evolutionary process to get us back to where we want to be. I do think the overall environment will be much more positive and will allow us and fans to focus more on the team and less on the other externalities, if you will. I think those externalities have affected people’s view of the team. I think that’s been unfortunate, but inevitable, and hopefully, all of this will change that.”
David Wright was happy for how things turned out for the Mets owners:
“I’m happy for the family,” third baseman David Wright said. “They’ve obviously been through some ups and downs and it’s good to see them happy, and it’s good to see them come out of this the way they hoped they did, so I’m happy for both the families and I’m happy we can finally start talking about baseball.”
