METS REPORTEDLY STAYING PUT -- WITH A NEW STADIUM

     Mets Owner Fred Wilpon says the team is planning to stay in
Flushing now that the city and state "have launched serious
discussions" about building a new domed ballpark to replace Shea
Stadium, according to Charles Gasparino of NEWSDAY.  Wilpon said
that he met with the city's Deputy Mayor for Finance John Dyson
last week and discussed plans to build a natural-grass stadium
with a retractable dome as well as a privately funded
"interactive, virtual reality world's fair."  Wilpon said one way
of financing will be "an independent authority to float bonds"
(NEWSDAY, 8/31).
