Report from Port St. Lucie, 2/27

It’s been a year since Fred Wilpon has publicly discussed the financial and legal issues surrounding the Mets at any length, so the principal owner drew a huge crowd while holding court for 22 minutes Monday on matters ranging from the sale of minority shares to David Wright’s future to the 2013 All-Star Game.

Wilpon wasn’t the only member of the Mets’ hierarchy to hold court Monday. Manager Terry Collins also addressed his team for an hour prior to the spring first full-squad workout, reminding them that “there’s not a phase of this game we can take for granted.”

Oh, and Wright lost a bet. Pictures below:

To paraphrase Tug McGraw: “You gotta believe” that one day the Wilpons will lose ownership of the team and we don’t have to choke out the modicum of talent we have annually.
