Bobby Valentine Interested in Buying into Mets
By Jess Estremera
ESPN's Adam Rubin reports that Bobby Valentine has an interest in buying the New York Mets. A baseball official stated Sunday that Valentine has "spoken with serious financial backers about lining up a bid to buy at least a portion of the Mets." Valentine says that he has "talked to a number of people interested in purchasing part of the New York Mets, but I'm not formally with any group that is actively pursuing this venture." Valentine has been a fan favorite in New York, leading the Mets to their last World Series appearance in 2000.
