WATCHING FROM THE SIDELINES: ESPN MLB analyst and former Mets manager Bobby Valentine said he has "no active role" with any of the groups bidding for a minority stake in the Mets. Valentine: "I am kind of sitting on the sidelines and rooting for my friends the Wilpons, and if they need some partnerships, then they pick the right people. And the people I know can all fit that bill." When asked if he has spoken to any of the groups about the Mets, Valentine said, "If any of them have called in the past and asked about the little information I might have, I have willingly talked about baseball and the Mets" (N.Y.
