Potential Mets Buyer No Longer Interested


According to the Wall Street Journal,  Michael Repole—the co-founder of Vitaminwater, the chairman of Pirate’s Booty Snacks and Energy Kitchen, and a Queens native—is no longer interested in purchasing a minority share of the Mets, he said in an e-mail interview Sunday.

“Under the right circumstance I would have an interest,” Repole said. “The circumstances now are not right for me.”

Earlier this year, Repole had expressed a desire to buy part of the team to Steve Greenberg, the managing director of Allen & Company, the firm that Mets ownership retained to search for a buyer. Both the Mets and Greenberg are aware, Repole said, that he has changed his mind.
