Brodie Van Wagenen Leaves Mets Organization

Once Steve Cohen officially purchased the New York Mets, it felt like only a matter of time before he cleaned house. Well, it took him about 30 minutes to relieve Brodie Van Wagenen of his duties as executive vice president and general manager.

Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News was the first to report the news. What a wild day for the Mets.

BVW wasn’t the only guy to leave the Mets. Cohen is cleaning house. Omar Minaya, Jared Banner, Allard Baird, and Adam Guttridge have all been removed from the organization. Cohen had already confirmed Sandy Alderson is going to lead the baseball and business operations.

BVW got removed for a reason. His trade for Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz put the nail in the coffin. It was a trade that never made sense from the jump. Taking on Cano’s salary was terrible enough. Giving up Jarred Kelenic made it clear that BVW didn’t have a clue what he was doing.

Cohen is no messing around. He’s by far the wealthiest owner in baseball and likely wants to turn this team into a winner right away. Alderson has led the Mets in the past and will give him the keys to turn this puppy around. Making a splash for someone like George Springer or JT Realmuto seems likely.

There is real optimism around the Mets organization now. The Wilpon family is finally being removed. It took Cohen about 30 minutes to fire Van Wagenen. It tells you what he thought of the guy who refuses to wear sweatpants.
