More fallout from the Wilpon family’s bad business decisions.
The Mets have let go nearly 10 percent of their approximately 180 non-player employees, they admitted in a statement late Friday afternoon (because that’s the time of the week this kind of news always gets announced).
The reductions came in both the baseball and business operations departments. No word on who was let go, but it seems like a safe guess that all 14 of the team’s vice presidents kept their jobs.
Regardless, it sounds like the team’s unpaid interns will be especially busy this winter.
