Mets co-Owner Nelson Doubleday, who was "credited with an assist" in the team's trade for C Mike Piazza, "likes the immediate results of his effort and plans to play a more active role" in the team with co-Owner Fred Wilpon, according to Murray Chass of the N.Y. TIMES. Doubleday: "Absolutely I'm getting more involved." Wilpon, the Mets' President & CEO, said that Doubleday, who "has been more of an absentee owner," is "welcome to play any role he desires." Wilpon: "He's my partner. He's been involved. He chooses to do what he wants to do." Doubleday, on trading for Piazza: "We weren't going anywhere, weren't doing anything" (Murray Chass, N.Y. TIMES, 5/31).
