THERE IS A GOD!



That being said, being a Mets fan, I totally expect the new owner to drop dead by Christmas.

Want to talk about "Stupid Money?" This guy has STUPID money. He could go out an blow $500M on payroll and not bat an eye. He said he's not in it to make money and I believe him. He doesn't need to make money on the Mets. He will. But he doesn't need to. With their TV contract if he blows money on payroll and gets butts in the seats (if that ever happens again) he'll make money. A different owner can make all the difference. When Mark Attanasio bought the Brewers from the Selig family in 2005 they went from not making the playoffs in 26 years to a perennial contender. The Seligs are car dealership/limo company rich. Attanasio is hedge-fund rich. Big difference. Cohen is drop a thousand dollar bill ain't worth my time breaking stride to pick it up rich.

"If we don't with a World Series or two in the next 3-5 years that would be a disappointment." BOOM!!! Should be fun being a Mets fan in the coming years!

GBdad, build and organization then build a team. Cohen does not expect to make money on the Mets. Yeah sure. They will always be worth more down the road. But Mets fans are loving having "Rich Uncle Steve", a life long Mets fan at the helm. The Yankees have to shitting in their pinstripes! Mets will up the Yankees prices on players at least if they can't sign them.

Will it be terrific? Will it be stupendous? Will it be "yuge?"

I don't trust rich people promises. I'm looking forward to another year of ignoring baseball.

Robinson Cano! Well, don't you know!!! Dinged for PEDs second offense. Suspended the entire 2021 season without pay. Frees up another $24M of payroll for 2021.

Hear that the Mets asked for permission from the Brewers to talk to President of Baseball Ops David Stearns. Denied! But I hear Theo Epstein is available. Anyone actually think Theo doesn't end up with the Mets?

Epstein would be interesting. Quite a track record. Yanks are shitting with the Mets having 24 million fall int heir lap. Hello Mr. LeMahue!


BTW, I think it should be a standard clause in a players contract that if t the player has been caught cheating the team should have the option to void the contract. Cano still has 48 million coming to him for the next 2 seasons after his year off.
