Mets Find Minority Partner & Beat The Cubs In Rain Shortened Game
News is breaking that the Mets have found a person interested in a minority share of the Mets, which is believed to be less than 49%. David Einhorn, President of Greenlight Capital, is the man.
Einhorn's investment will most likely be in the $200M range, which should help alleviate some of the Wilpon's financial woes. The investment will not include any stake in SNY. The investment most likely won't be enough to retain Jose Reyes, but that is another issue for another day.
In other news, the Mets defeated the Cubs 7-4 in a rain shortened 6.2 inning game. Dillon Gee is credited with his first career complete game victory.
Jose Reyes collected another 2 hits and scored a run. His average is now at .316 with an OBP of .366.
The other problem child, Carlos Beltran, was 2-3 with a double and a triple and 2 RBI.
The rubber game of this series concludes with a 2:20 afternoon game.
