Mayor Bloomberg As The Next Mets Owner? Don't Count On It

In a recent article on Politicker, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg was asked whether he would consider buying the Mets. His response:
"Look the Mets are fun and I like going, I think Citi Field turned out fine. Why anybody wants to own a sports team, I can’t figure out. If you think the business press is tough, and then you get to the political press, the sports press that’s just really," Mayor Bloomberg trailed off and let the audience fill in the blanks.
The whole subject came up after Councilman Jimmy Oddo suggested the Mayor buy the cash strapped team.

Is Bloomberg even a Mets fan? I've only ever seen him around when there is an important event happening.
