Wilpons being sued - what a shocker..Beltran drawing interest from Red Sox

At least the Mets are making the news.  Looks like the Wilpon's are being sued for the $$ they made in the Madoff scheme.  Statement from the Mets below.

"The Trustee for Bernard L. Madoff and BLMIS today has filed a complaint against various Sterling partners and entities. Because the parties are engaged in settlement negotiations, the complaint is filed confidentially, under seal. Consequently, we will have no further comment at this time. Regardless of the outcome of these discussions, we want to emphasize that the New York Mets will have all the necessary financial and operational resources to fully compete and win. That is our commitment to our fans and to New York."

The Mets/Wipons might have gained 50M in those dealings. Good reason why the Mets are not spending anything this year. 

Red Sox might have interest in Beltran but even if this is more then a rumor cant see Beltran waving his no trade clause.
