WILL METS DOUBLE THEIR PLEASURE WITH NELSON MORE INVOLVED?

          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).
