At a time when Fred Wilpon is being targeted by others who lost money in the Bernie Madoff deal, the New York Mets are seeking new investors. Without knowing exactly how much money the Wilpons have, or what they stand to lose, we can't know exactly when or how this will be resolved. But it's safe to say that the Madoff scandal could, in the end, be viewed as a turning point in Mets history -- a domino that could eventually lead to change in the team's ownership.
