Frozen Ropes

Einhorn or Einstein? It can often be wise to hold off on commenting about certain current events until additional facts are revealed. Nothing can be truer in terms of David Einhorn's investment in the Mets. If the information unearthed by ESPN-NY's Adam Rubin is accurate (and there is no reason...
