Things have been fairly quiet on the Uncle Stevie front this season. You know that won't last. With the highest payroll in baseball, the Mets' owner has proven that he is willing to open the checkbook in pursuit of wins.

If the team can continue trending in the right direction, it's a certainty that Cohen and general manager Billy Eppler will get creative around the trade deadline to bolster the roster. Many teams are already playing themselves out of the pennant race, and the Mets would be wise to target trade partners such as the White Sox, Reds, and Rockies in the coming months.

The fanbase is already dreaming of a world where Cohen is able to land Shohei Ohtani on a record-shattering contract this offseason, but moves will be made this year to provide more immediate results. Whether it's bullpen help, outfield depth, or a shiny new starting pitcher or two, I know that Cohen won't sit idly by.

It wasn't all that long ago that Mets fans were crying themselves to sleep each night while the Wilpons stole the joy from our lives. Cohen has been a massive improvement in every way, and that will become even more apparent as the Mets play to win this year, and every year going forward.
