"As far as I'm concerned, from my perspective, I think the way that the Mets are doing this thing is correct," Selig said. "There are a lot of teams that like to spend a lot of money that don't do well, either. I'm not trying to be facetious saying that. Do I have any problem with the Mets' finances? None.
"The fact of the matter is I do monitor every team," Selig said. "And honestly if I felt -- and I mean this very sincerely -- that there was a team really not doing what I thought they should do in the best interest of the sport, they'd hear from me."
