Fred Wilpon arrives in Milwaukee
By Adam Rubin
As the GM Meetings transition into the Owners Meetings at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Mets principal owner Fred Wilpon arrived on Wednesday alongside Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.
Wilpon would not discuss any Mets matters.
"I have nothing to say anyway, except look at this," Wilpon said, pointing to a colorful sweater worn by Daily News columnist Bill Madden. "He think it's the middle of the summer. Go outside a little bit with that, baby."
The Post, meanwhile, reported that the Mets' attempts to sell $20 million shares of minority ownership with the option to cash out after six years and collect 3 percent annual interest has "several commitments."
