Former Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels, who agreed to a plea bargain, officially was sentenced Monday. Here's the Associated Press story:

The New York Mets' former clubhouse manager has been sentenced to five years of probation. Charlie Samuels admitted in February to being in possession of $2.3 million worth of team memorabilia. He pleaded guilty to possessing stolen property and tax fraud. The 55-year-old is also banned from any Mets facility, even if he buys a ticket. The team fired Samuels in 2010. He had worked for the Mets since 1976 and became equipment manager in 1983. The Mets issued a statement when Samuels pleaded guilty, thanking those involved in the investigation.
