Wilpon: Mets Ownership "Free And Clear" To Make Free-Agent Moves

Mets Owner Fred Wilpon today said that he and his family are "free and clear of past financial woes" and that GM Sandy Alderson "has the financial flexibility to make major free-agent signings in upcoming offseasons." He added that the family's "improved financial complexion also is the result of the rebound of real estate, his primary business, as well as stock-market gains" and SportsNet N.Y. "thriving." Wilpon also said that the "payroll, slashed in recent seasons under Alderson, could return to past levels if it is prudent" (ESPNNY.com, 2/13).
