This is a potentially monumental day for the New York Mets. Putting a five-year number Fred and Jeff Wilpon’s roles with the team would seem to imply their longtime control of the franchise will be over before the 2025 season.


The countdown has begun?

The owners of the Mets are in talks to sell up to 80% of the team to Steve Cohen according to @soshnick.

WOW...

According to this article on Bloomberg,

Up to 80% of the Mets will be sold at a valuation of $2.6 Billion to Point72 Asset Management Founder/CEO Steven Cohen.

Cohen is already a 4% owner in the team.

Omg ...

What a time to be alive, my friends. =D>

So the Wilpons would still be pulling a paycheck for the next 5 years, but it'll be Cohen bankrolling the team immediately? I am down for that. :D

Trying to contain myself until anything is officially announced. But I'm hoping that "where there's smoke, there's fire" is fully applicable here!
