Out of the Blue

Billionaire Steve Cohen agrees to buy the New York Mets. This is fantastic news for a Mets fan like myself. I won't say this is because he's such a terrific person. I don't know that much about him, but he has faced a few different charges related to his hedge fund activities over the years, so he's probably not a Boy Scout. But he is rich as Croesus so this will hopefully put an end to the relatively miserly way the team has operated since Fred Wilpon lost a fortune in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. The Mets won their second World Series in 1986, which ended what was considered a 17 year "drought" from their first championship. That makes their current drought twice as long as the previous one. Here's hoping the sale is the start of a brighter chapter for the franchise.
