Big article on Fred Wilpon, Bernie Madoff and the Mets by Jeffrey Toobin in the New Yorker.

espn already has the snippets about his opinion on some of the mets players.
if he agreed to do the article to improve public perception of him, i doubt it works once he started taking shots at some players.
the wilpons seem to be people that make mistake after mistake, with a little bit of good fortune to make some money but otherwise pretty mistake oriented.
Yeah, this is ugly.
Mommy Wilpon to Fred: ... and this is why you can never have nice things.
Wilpon should not be allowed to hold anything sharp when he moves. Godzilla would be proud of the dance moves he just put on Citi Field. I wonder if Hank is either advising him or taking notes...
Oh, and Sandy must be thanking Bud and Fred to high heaven for giving him such a plum job with perks right now. He might want to borrow some Walmart tags to sew onto Wright and Reyes' uniforms that say Rollback before the trade deadline.
