For the New York Mets? Nah, we're good. That's the franchise that will continue to buy a 1.20 million USD cake to celebrate Bobby Bonilla day until 2035. It's the same franchise with several bad player deals including letting Daniel Murphy get away.
Steve Cohen is in a good position to buy again after declining earlier this year. He's also a hedge fund manager, but you knew that. Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are in the bidding war as well. Maybe the Mets fans have had enough of the glitz and want more of the grit that Cohen will likely bring.
As a parting shot to the faithful fan base, the Wilpons will never live down the 162 million USD they had to repay after getting caught up schmoozing too long with Bernie Madoff.
