Andrew Cuomo talks baseball-return hope with Mets’ Jeff Wilpon

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday he is hoping baseball can return soon and made his feelings known to Mets COO Jeff Wilpon.

But with one caveat.

“I said why can’t we talk about a baseball season with nobody in the stands? Why can’t you play the game with the players,” Cuomo told his brother Chris on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” Wednesday. “I think it would be good for the country. I think it would be good for people to have something to watch and do. To fight cabin fever. I think it’s something I’m going to pursue.”

Gov. Cuomo said he wants the games to be played even without the fans as a holistic approach. MLB officials recently floated a plan to put all 30 teams in the Phoenix area in empty ballparks to start the season.

Wait- he wants the return of major league baseball, and he talked with the Mets?
