Link: As Steve Cohen Closes In on Mets, Discrimination Claims Cast a Shadow (NY Times)

While we look forward to Steve Cohen naming me President of Baseball Operations soon, I want to address this report in the New York Times.

When the federal authorities forced Mr. Cohen’s first hedge fund, SAC Capital Partners, to shut down after it pleaded guilty to insider trading charges and paid a total of $1.8 billion in fines, Mr. Cohen didn’t skulk away and count his money. (via NY Times)

Look, how many times do we have to discuss this?  Stop bringing up old news.

What might give some owners pause are several discrimination claims filed by women who have worked for Mr. Cohen’s largely male-dominated firm in an industry known for its rough-and-tumble cowboy culture, where he is revered as “the big guy.” (via NY Times)

Yeah so?  Like Mr. Carlson on WKRP in Cincinnati. The Big Guy.  And Herb was Little Guy.  You act like WKRP was a place where people hit on the secretaries all the time.

Two complaints were filed under seal earlier this year with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. They are still pending, according to a commission spokesman.

It is not known what specific claims were raised in the two complaints filed this year, which came from Shannon Gitlin, who works in the investor relations department for Point72, and Sara Vavra, a former portfolio manager. (via NY Times)

Yeah, you guys reading this don’t even know what happened.  Why even drag all this up? Let’s get the Wilpons out of here and get our new Good Guy Ownership in here.  Make that Big Guy Ownership.

The Big Guy is coming, and he’s got an open wallet and is going to sign ALL the Free Agents.  With the reports that he’s buying the minor league teams too it is likely that the Cyclones will be more stacked than the Oakland A’s.
