Rays owner: Happy where he's at

By Adam Rubin

Tampa Bay Rays owner Stuart Sternberg, who grew up Canarsie and is a Mets fan, said he won't be trying to switch teams and purchase the Mets.

"The Mets are owned by the Wilpons," Sternberg told the St. Pete Times' Marc Topkin. "They've been great owners for a long time. They've been very welcoming and helpful to me and ultimately our organization. This is their team and I have no intention of purchasing or looking at purchasing the Mets.''
