Mets Agree To Sell Minority Stake In Team

SATURDAY: Adam Rubin of ESPN New York has learned the terms of the purchase, which sound extremely favorable for Einhorn. The $200MM buys him 30-35% of the team, and he has an option to increase his stake to 60% in three years. If the Wilpons do not want to give him a majority (and controlling) share at that time, they can refund the $200MM while Einhorn still gets to keep his 30-35% stake.

unless the Wilpons find 200 million under the mattress in the next three years, the reign of incompetence may be over
