5 biggest mistakes the Mets have made since Steve Cohen took over as the owner
1) Biggest NY Mets mistakes since Steve Cohen took over: The Jared Porter hire
The Steve Cohen era was going to feature Jared Porter as he was hired to serve as the Mets General Manager. He was certainly going to be better than Brodie and was going to help lead the Mets into a winning era.
Just over a month after being hired, a tweet surfaced from Jeff Passan saying Porter sent several unsolicited texts and images to a female reporter in 2016.
Porter was fired the next day, but how this even passed through background checks I have no idea. Porter obviously should've never been hired to begin with, and thankfully Cohen did let him go.
Porter's firing was a terrible look for the "new Mets" but thankfully they had an owner willing to take immediate action and say this kind of behavior is unacceptable for our franchise. The Mets have finally found a General Manager to stick around in Billy Eppler.
