"The Mets said Thursday that despite the prominence of the principal owner, Fred Wilpon, his family and his businesses on a 162-page list of the victims of Bernard L. Madoff's suspected $50 billion Ponzi scheme, the team remains financially sound.

"As we have said before on numerous occasions, this does not and will not affect the day-to-day operations and long-term plans of the Mets' organization and the Citi Field project," the team said in a statement.

Thirteen Mets accounts, some with Shea Stadium addresses, are among several hundred listed in the names of the Wilpons, the family of Fred Wilpon's brother-in-law and partner Saul Katz, and their company, Sterling Equities. The names of thousands of Madoff investors were released late Wednesday by the Federal Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.

The accounts include Mets Limited Partnership, For the Account of Sterling Mets-LP, New York Mets Foundation and Sterling Doubleday, the team's former corporate name when its ownership was shared by Wilpon and Nelson Doubleday.

No dollar figures were cited, so it is impossible to determine how much the team alone lost or what those accounts were earmarked for. There is also no way of knowing which accounts are active and which have been closed.

The list includes an account for Sandy Koufax, the Hall of Fame pitcher for the Dodgers and a high school friend of Wilpon's. Koufax's agent, Harlan Werner, said he had not spoken to Koufax and had no comment. Koufax makes regular visits to the Mets' spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Another friend of Wilpon's, Larry King, the CNN talk-show host, holds an account through a revocable trust.

A former Met, Tim Teufel, and his wife, Valerie, have six accounts. Teufel manages the St. Lucie Mets minor league team. The Brooklyn Cyclones, another Mets' farm team, are on the list through Brooklyn Baseball and Coney Island Baseball.

The Mets have not been acting like a team in financial distress. Before Madoff's arrest in December, the team signed reliever Francisco Rodríguez to a three-year, $37 million contract, and this week re-signed starter Oliver Pérez to a three-year, $36 million deal. The Mets also added the $5.3 million salary of reliever J. J. Putz in a trade.

The Mets had baseball's second-highest payroll last year at $137.8 million, and it will be slightly higher this season, their first at Citi Field. The Mets have so far resisted talk-radio clamor to sign Manny Ramírez for a few years at $20 million or more a season, which may be less a sign of fiscal prudence than of concern about his age and attitude.

E por falar em Mets, os bilhetes de temporada que o ex-presidente do NASDAQ tinha em sua posse já foram leiloados com sucesso no eBay:


Madoff's season tickets sell for $38,100 on eBay

NEW YORK (AP) -- Someone got a bargain with Bernard Madoff's Mets season tickets.

The two seats in the Delta Club Gold section behind home plate auctioned for $38,100 Tuesday on eBay, well below the list price for the pair of about $56,000.

The sale by lawyer Irving H. Picard, the trustee overseeing the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, covers 75 remaining games this season at Citi Field. The seats averaged $375 per game over the full season, ranging from $225-$525 per game, but the average for the remaining games is slightly less because the six games already played have been just above the average under the Mets' variable pricing plan.

Madoff originally purchased two seats in the Delta Club Platinum section in the second row behind home plate, which averaged $495 and ranged from $295-$695. The trustee exchanged those seats for the Delta Club Gold seats, Nos. 5-6 in the eighth row of section 11, just to the home plate side of the Mets' dugout.

The team agreed to refund to the trustee the $19,440 difference between the face values.

Just five bids were made for the season tickets, with the losing bids coming in at $31,000, $33,000, $35,000 and $38,000.

Madoff's tickets for the April 13 opener against San Diego sold for $7,500 to a man who identified himself as 47-year-old Kurt. He took his 16-year-old son as Mike to the game, a 6-5 Mets loss.

Mets owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz were close to Madoff, who pleaded guilty March 12 in federal court to 11 counts, including securities fraud and perjury, stemming from a Ponzi scheme prosecutors said was worth $64.8 billion. The 70-year-old Madoff faces up to 150 years in prison at sentencing June 16.

Wilpon, Katz and many entities of their company, Sterling Equities, and various affiliated foundations are among the swindled creditors.
