NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets‘ owners have met with Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to discuss the team’s finances.

A person familiar with the meeting says it involved owner Fred Wilpon, team president Saul Katz and chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and took place at the commissioner’s office. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the meeting wasn’t announced.

Selig is in New York for another event, and the meeting has been scheduled for about two weeks, the person says.

The Wilpons announced Friday they will consider seeking a minority partner to invest in the Mets. The Wilpons were sued last month by trustee Irving Picard, who is seeking to recover money for the victims of the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.
