It's the biggest win for the Mets since 1986 — but a huge letdown for the fans.
The team's stingy owners will remain at the helm after striking a sweetheart settlement with the lawyer tasked with recouping billions from Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme — and the deal actually casts them as victims of the fraud.
The deal heads off a risky jury trial, where a loss could have cost owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz up to $383 million and control of the franchise.
Instead, fans and baseball analysts said it'll be back to business as usual for the tight-fisted management, criticized for not spending on top players who boost ticket sales — and wins.
