Saul Katz denies he’s interested in selling his share of the Mets

8 Comments

Yesterday the New York Times reported that Saul Katz, president and part-owner of the New York Mets, was looking to sell his interest in the team. Katz issued a statement last night saying “nah”

There is no truth to the reports of any intention of selling.  I have no intention of selling my share of the Mets nor have I ever had any intention of selling my share.

Well alrighty then.

Enjoy the continued Wilpon Dynsasty, everyone.

 

Twins sign Michael Pineda to a two-year deal

The Twins just announced that they have signed pitcher Michael Pineda to a two-year contract.

Pineda, 28, has a 4.05 career ERA and has struck out 9.1 batters per nine innings over 680 career major league innings.

Pineda underwent Tommy John surgery this past July, so the Twins are buying a 2018 filled mostly with rehab and a pitcher for 2019. As such, the deal is probably not too taxing financially, but could pay off pretty well for them if Pineda comes back strong.
