Mets owner blows rest of money in Brooklyn dice game

In a failed attempt to try and recoup money lost in the multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme run by Bernie Madoff, New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon was left ass out on Wednesday after blowing the rest of the team’s money in a Brooklyn-area dice game.

Wilpon issued a statement on Thursday with an apology to Mets fans and the organization for “being so foolish to think [he] could keep riding sevens like that.”

This is just the latest in a long string of awful financial decisions by members of the Mets organization, highlighted by a $36 million investment in the frighteningly awful Oliver Perez, who is 3-9 with a 6.81 ERA over the first two years of a three-year extension.

The dice game loss means Wilpon will be forced to turn over legal control of the Mets franchise to dice legend Ashy Larry.
