Mets End Madoff Mess With a WinMarch 19, 2012 – In The News
Michael Kline commented on the $162 settlement reached between the owners of the Mets and Irving Picard.
"I think the Mets got a pretty good deal," said Kline. "I would have thought the $162 million would have been done without allowing them to go forward and do the other aspect -- the claim as a victim. Clearly, the Wilpons walk away from this and say, 'We got a victory. We now can focus on baseball and rebuild the team and not go through the pain of weeks of a trial and appeals after that.' ... I think on balance, the Mets did pretty well."
