SLACKISH REACTION: Wow what a fun 24 hours in Queens. We won’t even have time to get into the Mets dressing Wheeler as Hannukah Harry or Wheeler signing with the division rival Phillies because Generic Winter Holiday came early to Queens with the shocking news that the Wilpons are selling!
Now I want to make sure that we don’t gloss over that Tiki Barber broke the news while the entire Mets beat got out hustled. Most of that beat was at the Generic Winter Holiday Party in Queens enjoying the pastries of the Wilpons, and somehow all missed this story.
However, before you get too excited, let me warn you of the Dystopian Future where the Wilpons are Lame Ducks for 4 seasons.
Because I like to First Guess things, let’s remember here on December 5th that the Main Stream Media was all in Cohen’s Corner when this was announced. Let’s bookmark this one. That way some distant August when what’s left of newspapers are killing the Mets we can remind them they were as excited about Cohen as they were about Mickey Callaway.
And so what if Cohen once…well here you read it…
NEW YORK (Reuters) – A federal judge in Manhattan on Friday threw out the 2013 insider trading guilty plea of a former trader at SAC Capital Advisors LP, the hedge fund once run by billionaire Steven A. Cohen, saying recent changes in the law meant there were not enough facts to support the plea. (via Reuters)
Who cares, right? Keep your head down and be glad those Ponzi Billionaires are gone and replaced by the insider trading charges thrown out billionaires. Men of the people. True Mets fans who only have our interest at heart. Thats The Narrative being told today, let us hope it is true.
The good news for me is that the Newspaper says that Cohen was the inspiration for the lead character on Billions, which is great because I have already taken the Wags character out for a drive….so for comedy purposes this is AMAZIN’
Oh yeah and this happened…on any other day people would be rioting in the streets….
“I’m sad to see Wheeler leave the Mets and to a divisional competitor,” Noah Syndergaard told The Post. “But at the same time I am happy to see him get a fat paycheck. He is an elite pitcher.” (via NY Post)
….but Steve Cohen have the Wilpons cover, so everyone just ignore that one of the Five Aces went to a division rival. I know y’all can’t multitask, I get it.
But for this Cohen thing….let’s hope for the best, but as this is Queens….always prepare for the worst.
NOT LINKING: The folks at the AAIMBR used “Christmas Party” in their recap article. It was not a Christmas party guys. Let me read to you from the invite: “The Mets will host school children at their annual Kids Holiday Party on Wednesday, December 4 in the Foxwoods Club at Citi Field”
But hey, you’re wrong about almost everything else so why not this? I’m just surprised the Mets invited all 74 of your writers, must have been a big party!
