We told you there would be more Madoff money madness this week. And look, not only is original Madoff investor Carl Shapiro giving up $550 million to the government but Iriving Picard, the trustee in charge of finding the disgraced moneyman's cash, has gone and filed another lawsuit. And this time he's after the Mets. Or, rather, Mets principal owner Fred Wilpon and his real-estate investment firm, Sterling Equities. According to Picard, Sterling took out more money from Madoff's coffers than they put it, specifically they deposited about $523 million and took out $571 million. And, while the firm and the lawyer are currently in "good faith negotiations" on the matter, Sterling wants “to emphasize that the New York Mets will have all the necessary financial and operational resources to fully compete and win.” Feel better Mets fans?
