Baseball spring training started last Saturday. It’s really just a tease of what the regular season will bring. But before that, the Mets’ owners are going to trial. A federal judge ruled on Monday they must pay as much as $83.3 million to the trustee managing the losses in Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Tyler Kepner is the national baseball writer for the New York Times. The Yankees are troubled with injuries, the Mets’ financial problems are getting worse, but Kepner says, baseball is safe.
