    This really infuriates me!!! I’m so sick of the ****ing Wilpons and their small market mindset.

    Nothing like the annual fun of watching the Mets remain a dumpster fire.

    The New York Post is reporting that Cohen is ending his talks with the Wilpons, and that he's "deeply unhappy with the Wilpons changing the terms of the deal at a very late stage." As the Post notes, this sounds similar to what happened the last time the Wilpons tried selling the team, back in 2011 to David Einhorn.

    The Mets initially raised concern on Tuesday, when they responded to murmurs about Cohen possibly backing out of the deal by saying, "The parties are subject to confidentiality obligations, including a mutual non-disclosure agreement, and therefore cannot comment," in a statement. Generally, it's not a good sign when a team feels the need to respond publicly about ongoing negotiations, or when the response is essentially a no-comment comment. Fair or otherwise, the Mets issuing a statement implied that there is something worth commenting on that deviates from normal operating procedures. That turned out to be the case.
    Come back, Mr. Doubleday, come back!

    Enjoy Pete Alonso wile you can.

    Cohen would have given the Mets the wealthiest owner in baseball.

    I’m still holding out hope Cohen will come through in the end. There isn’t a diehard Mets fan on this planet who agrees with ANYTHING the Coupons say or do. **** them.

    Met fans deserve this change in ownership. I kind of am on the outside looking in. Although I live not too far away. We went to a Mets/Braves game last summer. Alonso hit a record HR in the game, but they lost. The fans seem like a good, dedicated group. Was a fun ballgame (I'm a Braves fan).

    Mets fans are some of the most passionate in the game. It’s a shame the owners are crap.

    Alex Rodriguez might try to buy the Mets
    The New York Post is reporting that Alex Rodriguez is “kicking the tires” on a possible purchase of the Mets. Jennifer Lopez’s fiancé has become a man of many hats since he retired from playing the game, and is now a somewhat prominent figure in the business world. The Post says that J-Lo is also keen on the idea, and their combined wealth could be a good starting point for the investing group that would be necessary to meet the expected price tag for the franchise.
    A-Rod and J-Lo would undoubtedly need to find outside help, but the Post says that Rodriguez has busied himself with rubbing elbows with all sorts of financial bigwigs. Derek Jeter was able to do this to buy the Marlins, even if his group only had to pay $1 billion for the keys to that particular car.

    A-Rod being the lucky winner of this latest moment in Mets history would be endlessly amusing. He’s long said that he grew up a Mets fan, but more importantly, this would be Alex freaking Rodriguez buying the Mets. A-Rod’s history in New York is the sort of story that The Lonely Island need to make their next gonzo half-hour Netflix special about. Every baseball fan in the city has strong feelings about Rodriguez, and this would be the climax of quite a character arc. You have to imagine that the league would adore having the storyline of two teams in the NL East being owned by A-Rod and Jeter, too.

    Not sure Rodriguez as an owner is going to make the fans too happy.

    A-Rod would need a team of investors.

    He's rich, But he can't afford the NYM.
