Bobby V Interested In Buying A Stake In Mets

According to a report on ESPN New York by Adam Rubin, former Mets manager Bobby Valentine has talked to “serious financial backers” about the possibility of buying a portion of the Mets, the team he managed to the World Series in 2000.

“I’ve talked to a number of people interested in purchasing part of the New York Mets, but I’m not formally with any group that is actively pursuing this venture,” Valentine said Sunday night.

It will probably never happen, but how entertaining would it be too have Bobby V as one of the Mets owners?

I wonder if his first move would be replacing Terry Collins with himself as manager.

The Wilpons have said they will sell between 25 to 49 percent of the franchise, and will not cede majority ownership.
