Making Progress: At Least Two Minority Bids For Mets Have Been Submitted
Published April 1, 2011
TURTLE WAX: In N.Y., Michael O’Keeffe reports a group of bidders for a minority share of the Mets that includes "Entourage" Exec Producer Doug Ellin “has star power.” Sources said that if the group can reach a deal with the Wilpon family to buy a share in the club, Ellin “will enlist actors Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Ed Burns to bring their star power to Citi Field.” Connolly said that the actors “are willing to do whatever Ellin and his partners ask them if the group purchases a stake in the Mets” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/1).
