    Salute to Steve Cohen

    Being a hedge fund guy and brattiness aside, I still want to commend Cohen for using his financial muscle to attempt to make this team better. You can see he cares about this team and the fanbase. Far more than Fred, Jeffy Boy, and Saul did.

    I know we like to super critical of everything as Met fans but most fanbases would kill for an owner who had this much passion to win and the resources to back it up.

    Idk I think Fred cared about the team, I think Jeff just cared about money.

    I don’t doubt that if it weren’t for the Madoff scandal, the Wilpons would’ve showed that they cared for the team more.

    I’m not going to applaud Cohen for being the richest owner in baseball by 5x for making big time moves.

    I will applaud Eppler for always getting his guy. Dude knows how to make things happen.

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    Dodgers changed the rules last year with their Bauer move and then Scherzer and Turner move. Glad we have Cohen who's ready to build a superteam if needed

    Don't forget to include to thank the person(s) for keeping Sandy out of killing these deals. We all know if Sandy were in charge and Eppler were not here, we would not have signed Scherzer.

    Thank you Rob Martin and Steven Matz! Without you guys Uncle Steve may not have lost his mind and gone full tilt!

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    huh?
    The Mets under Cohen/Alderson have shown a willingness to sign players to big contracts. And for the record this is exactly the type of contract Sandy likes to use, high money/low years.

    In my opinion, I doubt Sandy would have signed the players Eppler has signed recently.

    He loved the bargain basement dwellers. Yes there were some big contracts but not wisely spent. To me Lindor was nowhere worth the money they signed him for.

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    So far, I like the signings.

    Not thrilled with Baez. Think we can do without him.
