Two Groups Reportedly Out Of Running For Mets Stake; Cohen May Be Preferred Bidder

TOUGH SELL: The WALL STREET JOURNAL's Smith & Futterman note the Mets "played their home opener Friday in front of a near-sellout crowd" of 41,075 at Citi Field, but since then the team "has averaged 30,600 fans, below last year's average of 31,600 when the Mets led Major League Baseball in attendance declines." That makes it "tougher for the team to regain profitability and command an attractive price for the minority stake" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 4/13).
