The New York Mets ownership rumour merry-go-round continues to spin, and the latest potential buyer is none other than former Mets manager Bobby Valentine.Valentine seems semi-serious about making a run at a piece of the Mets and he told ESPN, “I’ve talked to a number of people interested in purchasing part of the New York Mets, but I’m not formally with any group that is actively pursuing this venture.”

Nevertheless, Valentine by himself doesn’t have the financial resources to make this logical.  He currently serves as director of public health and safety for Stamford, Connecticut.

Valentine’s desire to return to the site of his glory years is well known.  Some Mets fans even pushed for the team to re-hire him as its manager this offseason, but that never came close to happening.

He was also believed to be a candidate for the Florida Marlins’ vacant managerial position last winter and his desire to return to professional baseball is evident.  Still, it seems far more likely that he’ll end up in a clubhouse than in a suite overlooking Citi Field.
