NY Mets fans still believe in the Steve Cohen era because it’s more about the performance on the field
Being a baseball fan is about more than wins and losses. As crucial as they are to getting you to show up to the games, watch through the commercial, and even buy a Daikin air conditioner system because you hear it talked about whenever you hear Howie Rose, it’s about more than what happens between the lines.
You want to respect yourself for being a Mets fan? Cohen has you covered.
Honoring the past has been a big part of Cohen’s reign. Numbers are getting retired. Fan-favorite jerseys have come back. They’ve become a more charitable organization and one that listens to what the paying customer wants. The culture around the Mets is a positive one. There are some warts. Nobody is perfect. Even Mark Wahlberg has a third nipple.
The crowning achievement by Cohen was the long-awaited Tom Seaver statue reveal. Other owners might have stopped there. The Cohen era continually surprises us with former Mets getting elected into the club’s Hall of Fame.
Cohen has guaranteed the fans this: even in a down year there will be reasons to show up to the ballpark. The team won’t compete every season. Sometimes it’s those other events that can be just as important and memorable.
