Mets Welcome New Savior Steve Cohen, As They Miss The Playoffs

The New York Mets will miss the playoffs yet again, and that’s with an expanded playoff field. A lineup consisting of Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Dom Smith couldn’t get it done. Jacob DeGrom isn’t getting any younger. The Mets haven’t made the playoffs since 2016 and haven’t won the division since 2015. Being a Mets fan can’t be easy; however, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Wall Street billionaire Steve Cohen has agreed to purchase the team (official approval pending MLB owners), and with him, the money to save the franchise from mediocrity.

Mets Under New Ownership

Steve Cohen has vowed to spend money in order to get the free agents and retain the players that are needed to win a championship. Fans know the Mets promise one thing and then do something else. But let’s give Cohen the benefit of the doubt.

Steve Cohen And His Beautiful Money

Cohen’s first order of business should be to get rid of the general manager, but you’ll read about that in a minute. The second-order should be not to throw millions of dollars at every former All-Star that is now a free agent. Instead, Cohen should be investing in a great network of coaches and scouts. Cohen needs to buy a system that can build the team from the ground up, on the cheap. And when the time comes to pay the good, young players, the team can afford to.

Get Brodie Out of There

This agent turned GM experiment has run its course. Since Brodie has taken over, he has acquired Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano, and Todd Frazier (twice). No one knew Diaz would forget how to pitch the year after leading the league in saves. Cano and Frazier, though, come on. Cano had more than half of a massive contract left. Van Wagenen helped negotiate the deal, and don’t forget, Cano took performance-enhancing drugs (PED’s) and is well past his prime. Frazier was old when he first came to the Mets, then he left, and Brodie decided a great idea to shake things up is bring him back. That’s shaking the clubhouse up, bringing back a 34-year-old third baseman that can’t hit, can’t run, and is average at best in the hot corner.

The Mets are in New York; it’s as big a market as there will ever be. Start running the organization like you are a big market team. You aren’t the Rays, nor the Marlins. If the Mets ever want to be relevant again, it’s time to open the wallet.
