Potential new New York Mets owner Steve Cohen has a chance to make a trio of moves this offseason that could begin to shape the future of the organization.
It’s no secret around baseball that the New York Mets are almost at the finish line when it comes to having billionaire and lifelong Mets fan Steve Cohen take control of the team as majority owner. Reports are the deal is expected to be finalized as early as November, pending the approval from Major League Baseball owners, and once the transaction is finalized the possibilities this upcoming offseason become endless in the minds of many Mets fans.
With new ownership in tow, this upcoming offseason will resemble the dawn of a new era and a breath of fresh air for a long-suffering fan base that has been awaiting a leadership change at the top for a countless number of years. With that being said there several moves many Mets fans want new owner Steve Cohen to make within the first hour that he steps into Mets headquarters.
There is a trio of moves that I believe our new owner should consider making as he begins his journey as the new leader of our beloved ballclub. The Mets aren’t as far off as many people think from being a team that can contend for division titles, as they currently possess the best starting pitcher in baseball, along with the best offense in baseball.
It will be interesting to see which direction Cohen will move forward with in regards to this entire organization and shaping it’s future. A sense of stability and accountability from leadership positions is certainly needed, as well as maximizing the remaining prime years of ace Jacob deGrom. Cohen can easily score a hat trick among Mets fans with the three following moves and provide a further sense of optimism heading into next spring.
