New York Mets owner Steve Cohen isn’t afraid to take to Twitter if he needs to. Cohen is like George Steinbrenner with social media.
Cohen wasn’t happy with a hit piece published by the New York Post, which stated that the Mets’ value “has gone backward significantly,” and “they had these two hires, and it looks like they are in disarray.”
Those comments are damning, and implicate Cohen as the main issue with a team that’s had plenty of drama in the 2021 season. The anonymous executive who implicated Cohen, according to the owner himself, is former Marlins president David Samson.
How Cohen would know about said anonymous source is beyond us, as that person didn’t attach their name to a quote for a reason.
Samson responded in tune.
Thus far, we can only take Samson at his word. Someone is lying here.
The writer of that story, the Post’s Mike Puma, would not reveal his source. He did say it’s not Samson.
So…where do we go from here?
Mets: Not a good look for Steve Cohen to start more drama
Cohen is the owner of a professional sports franchise, not a random fan on Twitter. To be calling out a rival while his team is battling for a playoff spot brings unwanted attention at a bad time.
Sure, this is his first season in charge so perhaps he’s still learning on the job. But who the hell cares about a random New York Post report?
Some folks care, sure. But one of them shouldn’t be Steve Cohen.
