Steve Cohen hiring Sandy Alderson as Mets team president

Steve Cohen went back to the future by announcing his intentions to hire Sandy Alderson as team president if he is approved as Mets owner. That could help Cohen’s ownership candidacy and bode poorly for Brodie Van Wagenen’s job security.

If I am fortunate enough to be approved by Major League Baseball as the next owner of this iconic franchise, Sandy Alderson will become president of the New York Mets and will oversee all Mets baseball and business operations,” Cohen said in a statement.

“Sandy is an accomplished and respected baseball executive who shares my philosophy of building an organization and a team the right way. I am excited to have Sandy in a key leadership role with the Mets if my purchase of the team is approved. Lets’ Go Mets!”

Theo Epstein would be perfect for Steve Cohen’s Mets

There usually is a new-owner syndrome to spend money immediately to make a mark, so do you — for example — think the agents for J.T. Realmuto, George Springer and other high-end players will wait to see what Cohen wants to do with his $14 billion even if a GM is not hired until, say, mid-November or not?

So the only question is: Does Cohen want Van Wagenen? If not, he could look into New York or New York-area-raised Mets fans like him, such as Indians GM Mike Chernoff (his first baseball job was as a $50-a-week Mets intern), Rangers GM Jon Daniels and Brewers GM David Stearns. All are qualified, with Stearns (who previously worked for the Mets) particularly intriguing and attractive.

Cohen’s hedge fund is facing a gender-discrimination suit, and to counter perceptions maybe he would like to hire the first female head of baseball operations. Yankees assistant GM Jean Afterman has never shown the desire for such a job, but if she did, this would not be a token. She is tough, smart and would have credentials as good or better than someone like Tellem.

Done deal! Steve Cohen agrees to buy the Mets | Sale details, final price tag

It took a while, much longer than anyone anticipated. But billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen has a deal in place to buy the New York Mets. Sportico broke the details on Monday, based on information from a person with direct knowledge of the sale.

The person was granted anonymity because the deal isn’t signed, though an announcement will be made later today. Allen & Co., which is overseeing the sale, declined to comment. Cohen will own 95% of the team, with the Katz and Wilpon families retaining the other 5%. While financial terms of the agreement haven’t been disclosed, two people with knowledge of the deal have said the sale values the team at about $2.42 billion. That would make it the most paid for an MLB franchise, topping the $2.15 billion paid for the Los Angeles Dodgers and surrounding real estate.

Alex Rodriguez fuming over ‘fixed’ sale of Mets to Steve Cohen, sources say

Alex Rodriguez is fuming over losing the Mets to billionaire Steve Cohen and griping that the process was rigged, multiple sources tell The Post.

Sources close to the former Yankees slugger say they lost the Queens team on Friday, Aug. 28, after the Mets’ banker — Steve Greenberg of Allen & Co. — reached out to ask for a sneak peek at what was being offered. The request came days ahead of the official Aug. 31 bidding deadline.

A-Rod — who has been vying for The Amazins with his superstar fiancee, Jennifer Lopez — reluctantly complied with the request only to learn later that same day that the Mets were in exclusive deal talks with Cohen.

The founder of Point72 Asset Management had offered $2.35 billion for the team — or just $50 million more than the $2.3 billion bid offered by Rodriguez and his group of investors.

The former Yankees third baseman is now convinced that the Mets spoon-fed his bid information to Cohen so the billionaire financier and art collector could have the highest offer and win the team. “They took the bids and showed them to Cohen,” a source familiar with A-Rod’s thinking claimed.

Mets Acquire Miguel Castro From Orioles

The New York Mets swung another deal just before the trade deadline, acquiring Miguel Castro from the Orioles, per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman (via Twitter). The Orioles will receive southpaw Kevin Smith, per Robert Murray (via Twitter). In addition, the Mets will be sending a player to be named later or cash to Baltimore, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

The Mets completed a flurry of deals at the last minute, also acquiring catcher Robinson Chirinos and third baseman Todd Frazier from the Rangers. In Castro, the Mets are getting another power arm from the right side to help out late in games. The 25-year-old owns a 4.02 ERA/3.71 FIP across 16 appearances this season. He strikeout to walk numbers have blown up in the 15 2/3 innings he’s logged this year with 13.8 K/9 to 2.9 BB/9. Those numbers are far better than his career norms, so at least some regression is to be expected. With just another month to go in the season, the Mets are betting the overall profile holds up.

Steve Cohen closes in on buying Mets

Steve Cohen is close to buying the Mets — again.

The billionaire won the bidding on the right to purchase the team, according to The Post’s Thornton McEnery. Cohen is now in exclusive negotiations with the Wilpons and Katz families to complete the purchase.

The group that posed the greatest threat to Cohen — led by former Yankee Alex Rodriguez and entertainer Jennifer Lopez — announced it pulled out of the process late Friday night.

This is Cohen’s second chance to purchase the team for which he is a fan. He saw a deal with the Wilpons fall through in February because the current owners wanted to maintain organizational control for five years. Team COO Jeff Wilpon, who complicated the initial deal worth $2.6 billion, was not part of negotiations the second time around, The Post reported.

Cohen was expected to bid more than $2 billion this time and beat out a group led by Rodriguez and Lopez and another by 76ers and Devils owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer.

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen calls comments about Rob Manfred wrong, unfounded

Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen apologized Thursday night, saying he falsely accused commissioner Rob Manfred of proposing a plan that would have had New York players stage a one-hour walkout during their scheduled home game against the Miami Marlins.

Van Wagenen’s comments, in which he criticized the commissioner as someone who “doesn’t get it,” were caught on video and spread on social media earlier Thursday.

But Van Wagenen issued a statement later Thursday night, saying it was actually Mets COO Jeff Wilpon who proposed the walkout idea - and not Manfred.

“Jeff Wilpon called Commissioner Manfred this afternoon to notify him that our players voted not to play,” Van Wagenen said in the statement. “They discussed the challenges of rescheduling the game. Jeff proposed an idea of playing the game an hour later. I misunderstood that this was the Commissioner’s idea. In actuality, this was Jeff’s suggestion. The players had already made their decision so I felt the suggestion was not helpful. My frustration with the Commissioner was wrong and unfounded.”

Mets’ next two games postponed after two team members test positive for COVID-19

The New York Mets have had their next two games postponed after two members of the team tested positive for COVID-19, MLB announced on Thursday.

The Mets were initially scheduled to face the Miami Marlins on Thursday, then begin a series against the New York Yankees on Friday, but will now focus on additional coronavirus testing and contact tracing.

The two members of the team to test positive were a player and staff member, according to Newsday’s Tim Healey.

The Mets later released a statement saying the team plans to fly back to New York from Miami on Thursday night, but without the two members who tested positive and anyone who has been traced to be in close contact with them. The group exposed to the virus will remain in Miami.

Mets’ Dominic Smith homers in third straight game Friday, capitalizing on Yoenis Cespedes opt-out

Cespedes opting out has been a blessing in disguise. Dominic Smith, who had been relegated to a part-time role earlier this season, have moved into the lineup full-time and become one of the team’s most dangerous hitters. Smith was 3 for 12 (.150) in the team’s first 10 games of the season. In nine games since Cespedes opted out, he is 8 for 30 (.267) with five doubles and three homers.

Smith went deep again Friday night against the Phillies (GameTracker). It was his third straight game with a home run and his team leading fifth of the season.

deGrom’s velocity increase has no parallel

Fresh off his 32nd birthday in June, the Mets’ all-world ace is suddenly firing the ball harder than he ever has before. On Opening Day against the Braves, deGrom hit 100 mph for just the third time in his career. He hurled four more triple-digit pitches in his next start against the Red Sox, including two 101.1 mph heaters that tied for the fastest pitch thrown by any MLB starter (excluding openers) in three years. By the time deGrom made his most recent start against Atlanta, 100 was just part of his repertoire.

The Mets announced Monday that right-hander Marcus Stroman has opted out of the remainder of the 2020 season. The right-hander, who is a free agent at season’s end, called the move a family decision and cited the many “uncertainties” and “unknowns” of playing in the current health-and-safety atmosphere.

Pete Alonso is on the way to becoming your new favorite regular talk-show host.

The All-Star first baseman is teaming up with Major League Baseball to give fans the opportunity to get to know him through MLB’s YouTube channel — where episodes featuring Alonso being mic’d up during Mets games will be available for public viewing.

 

Alonso will be mic’d up starting Opening Day on Friday against the Braves. The episodes should be available early in the 60-game season.

This is different than just being mic’d up here and there. What Alonso has in store includes regularly appearing in an actual series of episodes. If all goes to plan, the first baseman will be mic’d up during Mets games with a focus on his conversations with other MLB superstars and teammates. He hopes other players will also be mic’d up.

NJ.com: Mets sale: Sheldon Adelson complicates Steve Cohen, Alex Rodriguez-Jennifer Lopez, Josh Harris-David Blitzer bids

At this point, four suitors have moved on to the second round: Billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen, a consortium led by ex-New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and fiancee Jennifer Lopez, and a combined bid from New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia 76ers co-owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer. The New York Post reports a fourth “mystery bidder” remains in play as well.

On Wednesday, the New York Post revealed the mystery guests to be billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and private equity giant Silver Lake Partners.

Perfect for the Mets: a politically divisive casino mogul.

Back in 2009, there was speculation that Trump might be the named corporate sponsor of the new stadium, which did not inspire the revulsion it would today from 50%+ of Mets fans.  Adelson is the next best thing.  At least is’s incredibly rich.

Steve Cohen puts in $2B bid on Mets, Alex Rodriguez-Jennifer Lopez still in hunt

The first round of bids for the Mets are in — and for starters Steve Cohen appears to have made the highest offer.

Cohen, the hedge-fund billionaire who had previously offered $2.6 billion only to see the deal fall apart at the 11th hour, delivered the Wilpons an offer for $2 billion this time, according to a Fox Business report. That report stated Cohen is also willing to offer an additional $2 billion to also acquire SNY.

Cohen’s bid wasn’t the only one to come in before Thursday’s deadline.

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have their necessary funding and made a bid that is likely good enough to keep them in the game, sources told The Post.

The former Yankee slugger’s bidding group offered around $1.7 billion, two sources close to the situation said.

Seven groups qualify as bidders to buy the Mets, including Alex Roriguez and Jennifer Lopez group: r

The entangled race to buy the Mets is rapidly escalating.

Major League Baseball has approved seven groups as qualified bidders for the Mets, according to a Tuesday morning report from Sportico.

Known bidders include Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez’s group, which consists of Vitaminwater co-founder Mike Repole and Florida Panthers owner Vinnie Viola. Rodriguez and Lopez hired JPMorgan Chase in April to raise money for their possible bid. But, because the couple does not have enough money to buy the Mets on their own with a combined net worth of $700 million, Rodriguez and Lopez need help from billionaire investors like Repole and Viola.

Devils and 76ers owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer — who have a combined net worth of $5.1 billion — are also reportedly in the mix.

Brothers David and Simon Reuben are reportedly exploring a bid for the team, according to a Variety report. The tycoons are worth a combined $14 billion and are more interested in the real estate opportunities around Citi Field. In April, Bloomberg reported the Reuben brothers’ purchase of a retail condominium around Rockefeller Center in Manhattan as a step towards growing their enterprise in New York.

Mets sign Melky Cabrera, four others to 2020 player pool

The Mets signed former Yankee Melky Cabrera on Monday, and the 35-year-old outfielder is expected to be part of the team’s 60-player pool when spring training restarts this week.

Cabrera, who played four full seasons for the Yankees and was a part of their 2009 World Series team, most recently played for the Pirates.

The Mets also added another right-handed arm to their bullpen on Monday, signing Hunter Strickland, who was released by Washington in March….

The team also announced it had re-signed outfielder Ryan Cordell, who spent spring training with the Mets. Cordell, 28, had seven homers in 247 plate appearances with the White Sox last year. The Mets also re-signed RHP Erasmo Ramirez and added infielder Gordon Beckham.

Billionaire Mike Repole joins A-Rod and J-Lo’s bid for the Mets

Darren Rovell reports that billionaire Mike Repole has joined the Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez’s bidding group in hopes of buying the Mets.

A-Rod and J-Lo have been rumored to be interested in the Mets for months, but they don’t have the sort of scratch to do it without the sort of billionaire types who populate modern baseball ownership groups. Repole has additional Mets ties in that he has been involved in Vitaminwater, which featured David Wright as an early investor and spokesman.  Repole is also a thoroughbred owner, a Queens native and a huge Mets fan. He’s been mentioned for years as a possible Mets bidder one day, albeit usually on a merely speculative basis.

Billionaire Sports Owner Josh Harris Exploring New York Mets Bid

The owners of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils are looking to expand their sports empire to baseball.

Josh Harris, the billionaire co-founder of Apollo Global Management, and David Blitzer, an executive at private equity firm Blackstone, are among the suitors for the New York Mets, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Mets have retained Steve Greenberg at Allen & Co. to oversee the sale process.

Greenberg declined to comment, as did a spokeswoman for Harris. Talks are still in the early stages, said one of the people, who was granted anonymity because the matter is private.

The Mets, controlled by the Wilpon family, in December said they were in negotiations to sell up to 80% of the team to hedge fund titan Steve Cohen at a valuation of $2.6 billion. Terms of that deal allowed for the Mets to retain control of the club for five years.
Talks broke down after Cohen sought to alter the part of the deal that pertained to the timetable for control.

MLB.com: How Wilmer’s Tears Changed Baseball History

Many of us watched what went down at Citi Field the night of July 29, 2015, when Flores, then the Mets’ 23-year-old homegrown utility infielder, found out he had been traded and tried to hold back tears he couldn’t control. It was a rare, relatable glimpse into the human element of the Trade Deadline, a riveting presentation of baseball theater.

That moment, though, is even more important and engrossing with the benefit of retrospect. Whether Flores’ tears directly led to his swap getting spiked remains a matter of dispute. But that terminated trade has had bigger repercussions than the vast majority of deals that actually happened. Its ripple effects include the Mets winning the 2015 National League pennant with Yoenis Céspedes, the Brewers landing an uber-reliever named Josh Hader and Mike Fiers joining the Astros team whose sign-stealing scheme he would one day expose.

Great account assembled from talking to many people involved with these events.

NYT: Q. & A. With Tom Seaver

Q. Ryan has campaigned against pitch counts. Do you agree?

A. There’s nothing wrong with pitch counts. But there’s an addendum to that. I presume Nolan thinks the same way. But it isn’t a blanket pitch count. People say, “I bet the pitch count drives you nuts.” Heck no. I had a pitch count. My pitch count as a general rule was 135. And I knew how many pitches I had when I went to the mound for the last three innings. And I wasn’t going to spend eight pitches on the No. 8 hitter. On the second or third pitch, he should be hitting a ground ball to shortstop. It might not work like that all the time. But theoretically, you have an approach about how you’re spending your bullets.

There’s nothing wrong with pitch counts. But not when it’s spit out by a computer and the computer does not look at an individual’s mechanics. And you can’t look at his genes. It should come from the individual and the pitching coach and the manager.

Q. Will your former manager Gil Hodges, a former Dodger, ever get into the Hall of Fame?

A. I don’t know. Everybody in the New York area wonders why he’s not in. His numbers are high middle. But what else did he do? He was the leader on that ball club that went to the World Series and beat the Yankees. He was the leader of a ball club and franchise that went to the World Series. If you look at his body of work I say yes. Absolutely.

Q. Should steroid users be allowed into the Hall of Fame?

A. The commissioner and baseball has to figure that out. They’re going to have guys that have great numbers not in the Hall of Fame. They have to figure that out.

Thanks to Wrecki.

SI.com: Economic considerations at heart of Carmona’s decision

An interesting analysis of signing ages, signing bonuses, and success rates in the Dominican Republic, by Melissa Segura of Sports Illustrated ...

Teams pay premiums for 16-year-olds for two primary reasons: One, because teams often want to be the first to sign a promising player and, thus, avoid bidding wars with other teams; and two, clubs prefer to develop their players’ skills under the watchful eyes of their own club personnel rather than under those of unqualified and unaffiliated coaches or trainers.

But are 18-year-old Latin American players really worth 70 percent less than their 16-year-old counterparts? Here’s another data analysis that calls into question the industry practice of placing a premium on youth. Let’s assume the most basic marker of a successful signing is making it to the majors. We’ll make it simple and look at the 79 players who have made their major league debuts from 2008-2011 from Carmona’s Dominican Republic. Of those 79, only six were signed as 16-year-olds. The debuts suggest older players were more likely to advance to the majors. ...

[...]

What’s more, SI tracked down the bonus data for 60 of the 79 players. Fernando Martinez, signed by the Mets in 2005 for $1.3 million, was the only one to receive a seven-figure bonus. Only nine others signed for six figures and one — the Rockies’ Juan Nicasio — received nada to sign, according to the data obtained by SI. The median signing bonus among them tallied a paltry $35,000.

Rick Peterson and his pitching lab will apparently be in full effect for the Orioles in 2012.  His analytical technique has been hailed as a major prevention tool against injuries.  I have disabled list numbers of starting pitchers from part of his tenure with the A’s and all of his tenure with the Mets, giving us a time line from 2001 to 2007.  I also have disabled numbers of Orioles’ starting pitchers in 2009 and 2010.
