The Mets may have found a minority investor
The last time we heard that the Mets were close to landing their sought-after minority investor -- Steve Cohen -- the deal went sideways. So it was try, try again and, according to the New York Post, they’re getting close once again:
As always, there are still details to nail down. One, which could be an issue, is that apparently Bartoszek and Lanza want a piece of SNY. Which seems reasonable given that it makes tons of money and the Mets, at the moment anyway, not so much. You want equity, Fred, you gotta give up something of value, right?
According to the post, Wilpon wants this deal to close by June 30th. I’m assuming that date is important for fiscal year purposes, but given Wilpon, that could just be the release date of the next in-depth interview he gave and he wants to get out in front of things.
