Speaking before Game 7 of the World Series, commissioner Bud Selig indicated the Mets have not yet paid back the $25 million loan made late last year by Major League Baseball.

Here's the exact exhange:

Q. Have the Mets paid you back yet?

COMMISSIONER BUD SELIG: Have the Mets paid me back personally? Do they owe me something? (Laughter).

No, but we're doing fine with the Mets. I don't have any concerns about the Mets, as I think I've told you before. They're working on an alternative financing plan, and they seem to be very encouraged and I'm encouraged. I do have a lot of worries today, but frankly I'm happy to say the Mets are not one of them.
