New to be New York Mets owner Steve Cohen is inheriting a mess of a franchise; it’s only acceptable to give him a chance to turn things around and patiently.
The Mets front office is a mess: with GM Brodie VanWagenen likely gone after Cohen takes control, change will slowly happen.
The Mets also have a few players that have just come off the books as well, with one notably being former captain David Wright.
That frees up some money, which is awesome news for Cohen and company.
What I’m saying is, it’s impossible to get everything done at once. Cohen respectfully deserves time to turn what is an embarrassment of a team into a contending one.
If Cohen doesn’t sign some free agent stars right away, don’t freak out, Mets fans. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and some franchises take longer to build as well.
Cohen looks to take control as soon as he is approved, which should be quite quickly.
Cohen is expected to bring back former GM Sandy Alderson. With more money to spend, and no Fred and Jeff Wilpon on his back, I expect to see Alderson a lot more aggressive in free agency and do a heck of a better job at bringing talent to this needy ball club.
