A listener called up host Mike Francesa to talk about who might buy the New York Mets. Informed that the current owners seem likely to sell only a piece of the team, the caller wondered if the Steinbrenners might take a minority stake in the team.
So, one of those sophisticated New York fans thought it was a fine idea for the owners of the hated rival Yankees to own part of another team. I guess the competitive problems this would cause were lost on him.
Fortunately, Francesa set him straight.
