The Mets probably won't ever be worth less then they are right now so as a potential buyer for a sports team they would be a hot commodity. New York anything is simply too good of a location for advertising, attracting talent, etc. They have fantastic rivalries within their division and league as well as with the Yankees. (74–54 Yankees if you are curious) They have a respected farm system with no less than 9 affiliated teams of various levels. Right now was, in my view, a perfect time to buy them. The owner should have sold them before this, his loss.
