In an update to a story in about the claim that the Wilpons are broke, they just printed the following:

Update: Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal just tweeted: Writer tweeted about Mets' finances is not a WSJ employee. That did not go through us, nor is it in our paper. And also: That's not an attempt to discredit what he wrote. Just clarifying some apparent confusion as to whether it's something we reported.

And the cherry on top. Michael Salfino retracted his comments with a series of tweets, most damnably the one that said "I have no knowledge of the Mets financial situation other than hearsay."
