Mets Owners Wilpons Among Those Fleeced In Emerging Madoff Ponzi Scheme

The New York Daily News reports that Mets owners Fred Wilpon is among those fleeced by Bernard Madoff's $50 billion Ponzi scheme. The Wilpons, with investment partner Saul Katz, could have lost as much as $300 million. The company refuses to say how much was invested or whether it will affect the operation of the Mets.

Update: Bloomberg News has more on this, including an excerpt of a released statement from Sterling Equities:

“This news does not affect the day-to-day operations and long-term plans of the Mets organization and the Citi Field project,” the team said in an emailed statement.
