Mets owner Fred Wilpon is talking again -- and this time it's not just about his players. In an upcoming Sports Illustrated story, Wilpon says the Mets are "bleeding cash," the New York Daily News reports.

Wilpon tells the magazine he could reach an agreement to sell a minority stake in the team for $200 million in the next three weeks, but didn't say to whom. 

Wilpon said he's afraid he'll lose the team if Irving Picard, the trustee who represents Bernie Madoff's victims, wins his $1 billion lawsuit against him.

The more and more that comes out about the Wilpons, it seems like it won't be long until Bud Selig has to act much like he did in Los Angeles.
