Sound Familiar?

From ESPNNY.com:

The 75-year-old [Mets owner Fred] Wilpon reiterated he has no intention of his family relinquishing majority control.

"They shouldn't be concerned about us owning the franchise, because we intend to own the franchise for a very long time," Wilpon said about his message to fans.

From Frank McCourt, two years ago:

"I own the team, it's not for sale and my hope someday is that my four boys will own the team."

Even with Herpes McCourt clutching to the Dodger Stadium parking lots with his cold, dead hands, Dodger fans can take solace in his inevitable departure. But for Mets fans, it looks like more of the same.
