Hall-of-Famer Mike Piazza arrived at spring training on Wednesday and (among other things) spoke about the Mets ownership situation.
"These deals are complicated," Piazza said. "I think Mets fans -- rightly -- should be interested, obviously (in) the future of the team. The team had a very good second half last year. I was able to talk to Luis (Rojas) this morning. I think they're in good hands. I think it's a very difficult division."
When it comes to how the uncertainty might impact the players, Piazza didn't seem concerned.
"You have to have the right blend of talent, of youth, of experience," he said. "Things have to go together, you have to stay healthy. As a player, I've always found it advantageous to not get wrapped up in the things out of your control."
Speaking about Mets COO Jeff Wilpon, Piazza said he wants to turn the team over "to someone who's gonna care about the legacy of the team."
"He's told me 'look, it has to be right. It has to be the right mix, the right guy,'" Piazza explained.
"I think that's the misconception for me," Piazza added. "When the fans think they don't care about the team or they don't think -- no, they want to win. They care about the fans. They truly do."
