Report: Mets willing to pay three percent interest to minority investors

Looking to sweeten interest among potential minority investors, the New York Post reports that the Mets are willing to cover three percent interest per year over the course of a six-year investment.

For those unfamiliar, the Mets announced plans in September to sell off $20-30 million stakes in the team after a proposed $200 million deal with hedge fund manager David Einhorn fell through.

Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York on Monday that the process of selling minority blocks was “going very well.” However, since there is no path to ownership, this latest development is an indication that potential investors need more incentive than owning a tiny piece of the team for vanity purposes.
