Mets Owner Announces A Major Personnel Change

When Steve Cohen decided to make a bid for the New York Mets, he knew he had to surround himself with baseball people.

Ideally, these people would be highly respected around the baseball industry.

That’s why, when he was approved by MLB as the Mets’ owner in September 2020, Cohen hired Sandy Alderson as team president.

In fact, during the Mets’ first offseason with Cohen at the helm, Alderson helped him make baseball decisions, in the same way as a general manager does.

Last September, it was announced that Alderson was going to step down as team president and move into a special advisory role when a new team president was found.

On Monday, Cohen made an important announcement regarding Alderson and the president situation.

“Steve Cohen said Sandy Alderson is now an advisor, no longer the team president. Cohen has become more involved in day-to-day operations, including spending every Thursday in Mets meetings instead of at his hedge fund. Cohen said the Mets might go all season without a president,” Mets insider Tim Healey tweeted.

Alderson was an important figure in the first season of the Cohen era.

The Mets then found Jared Porter and Zack Scott to become the ones making baseball decisions, while Alderson returned to president duties.

Both Porter and Scott were involved in controversies and/or legal issues, though, so Alderson was once again helping find Cohen a good GM.

Billy Eppler was hired, and Alderson kept his position as the team president.

Now, Alderson will be an advisor, and the Mets will be without a president for the time being with Cohen very much involved in the decision-making.

Cohen is all-in, and so are the Mets.

The Mets Wish Their New Ace A Happy Birthday
