Recently, the Mets' ownership has been in financial peril, looking to sell off 25 percent of the franchise for $250 million.

New York reporter Bob Klapisch revealed, "Attendance is down nearly 15 percent, and there’s been no postseason revenue since the Mets were eliminated in Game 7 of the 2006 NL Championship Series."

The decision isn't "official" yet, but it would be the first time the Mets hosted the All-Star game since 1964, the longest drought of any franchise.

The Mets finished last season with a 79-83 record, and failed to miss the postseason for the fourth straight year.

This offseason, ownership fired general manager Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel.
