Steve Cohen is ready to let Billy Eppler spend big to fix broken Mets

Now that he finally has a general manager, Mets owner Steve Cohen is ready to open his sizable checkbook again.

During Billy Eppler’s introductory news conference as the team’s new GM, Cohen said he’s prepared to open up his checkbook in an effort to meet his goal of winning the NL East.

“It’s going to require, probably, spending, and that’s what’s going to happen,’’ Cohen said during Friday’s Zoom call, alongside team president Sandy Alderson.

“I’ve let Billy know, for the right deals and the right free agents, to go get the players we need,’’ Cohen said. “We want to be competitive, we want to win our division and be in the playoffs and get deep into the playoffs. We’ve got to field a team that has the ability to do that. I’ve let Billy and Sandy know, it’s whatever they need and I’m open to their suggestions and recommendations.”

This has Semien and Stroman written all over it. I wonder what sort of offer they'll make Conforto.

EDIT: And a "crazy" short-term offer to Scherzer.

I have to think they’ll be in on Suzuki.

Sources: Mets have offered Scherzer more than $40 million per year. Length unknown. Doesn’t mean he’ll sign there; that’s still unclear.
