The Mets’ Steve Cohen Has A Strong Message For His Fellow Owners

Mets owner Steve Cohen has never been shy or hesitant to ruffle feathers – It’s one of the main reasons why he is the richest owner in all of baseball, and one of the richest in all of sports.

MLB is a league without a salary cap – and unlike several of his fellow owners, Cohen has zero problem spending money.

In a rare one-on-one interview, Cohen explained to ESPN that he is going to spend whatever is necessary to put the best team on the field – and he has no patience for any owner who doesn’t share his attitude…

Cohen has talked a big game since purchasing the Mets – and no one can accuse him of not putting his money where his mouth is.

The Mets enter the 2023 season with a projected total payroll of $468.5 million – by far the most in baseball…

And to think, that’s not even including the 12 year $315 million contract Cohen was going to happily give Carlos Correa before concerns about his ankle scrapped the deal.

One thing is for sure – Cohen does not feel the least bit guilty for indirectly putting pressure on other owners to wake up and realize they are in the big leagues, and should spend like it.

“I’ve heard what everyone else has heard: that they’re not happy with me. I hear things from people who are maybe more neutral – that they’re taking a lot of heat from their fans. I kind of look at that like, you’re looking at the wrong person. They’re putting it on me. Maybe they need to look more at themselves.

“I’m not responsible for how other teams run their clubs. I’m really not. That’s not my job. And there are disparities in baseball. We know that to be true. I’m following the rules. They set the rules down, I’m following them.”

Every fan wishes their owner had this attitude.

Cohen is certainly a breath of fresh air for Met fans who suffered under their notoriously cheap previous owners, the Wilpons, before Cohen purchased the team from them in 2020.

Although he has no hardware quite yet, no one can doubt Cohen’s determination and hunger for greatness…

One of the sad realities in baseball is several (very wealthy) owners refuse to invest money in their team – which is why we enter every season with a third of the league having virtually no chance to make the playoffs, let alone truly contend for the World Series.

There are currently 11 teams with a total payroll under $100 million.

The below tweet features numbers from last year, but check out the bottom 3 payrolls – then check out how much the owners of those teams are worth…

With superstar phenom Shohei Ohtani expected to command a record-breaking contract when he becomes a free agent next year, its safe to say Cohen will be right in the thick of things once again…
