Steve Cohen fumes at ‘unproductive’ Mets as season spirals

Steve Cohen has spent months preaching patience to frustrated Mets fans on Twitter.

Now, the billionaire owner is the one who needs consoling.

Cohen slammed the Mets’ “unproductive” lineup Wednesday after the team’s losing streak hit five with a 3-2 loss to the Giants the night before.

“It’s hard to understand how professional hitters can be this unproductive.The best teams have a more disciplined approach,” Cohen fumed on Twitter. “The slugging and OPS numbers don’t lie.”


The tweet marked the first time the first-year owner has scolded the team publicly on social media, as he has remained active on Twitter since taking over the team.

The Mets’ .380 slugging percentage ranks 26th in the league and their .693 OPS is 24th.
