Fred Wilpon talks Mets finances

The Mets love Terry Collins, Fred Wilpon told Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, while attending the unveiling of improvements to a veterans facility in New York on Monday. “He has done a very good job with what we have.”

In regards to whether the team will return to a $140 million payroll, Wilpon told Sandomir, “I asked Sandy about that. He said he couldn’t invest that much money.”
