    More to come but if it happens Cohen will be the richest owner in MLB and second in pro sports to Clippers owner. Per ESPN. Donít know if that is accurate. Just repeating ESPN.

    Cohen net worth is around $13.6 Billion. Said Clippers owner is worth about $55 Billion thanks to how well Microsoft is doing under CEO satya nadella

    So Cohen can definitely afford the Mets, and not's not like he's burning that money since a NYC MLB franchise is a valuable asset he can flip at any time. Doesn't seem like the decline of the popularity of baseball is hurting valuations much

    Just as an aside, do the Mets go out of their way to have players who are from the tri-state area? Matz, Stroman, Porcello; T. Frazier was there recently. Kay who they traded to Toronto for Stroman is from Long Island.

    Mets worked out some kind of restructuring of Cespedes salary based on a grievance the team filed about his injury last season. (I think there was a dispute how he actually hurt himself)

    Joel Sherman - he’s losing some 2019 salary and over 19mil in 2020. New incentives that could rebuild some of what’s lost. But Sherman says 2020 salary base is 10mil. Surprising.
