  • Vice President reporting directly to Fred Wilpon

    I like Ricco, and glad that he's staying on...but find humor in part of Ricco's duties:

    but will also report directly to chief operating officer Fred Wilpon and play a larger role in some key financial prospects for the club (e.g. construction projects at the team’s Spring Training and minor league facilities). On the baseball side of the coin, the Mets’ release specifies that Ricco will continue to work with general manager Brodie Van Wagenen in “salary arbitration and oversight of the Baseball Operations budget and Major League payroll.”

    The Mets promoted assistant GM John Ricco to a new position involving both baseball and business operations. Read more at MLB Trade Rumors.

    eh, you see people with split duties regularly in businesses, especially if there is someone as an owner you trust. And yes, reading between the lines, the Wilpons get eyes and ears inside BVW's upper ring, also not uncommon.
