Why? You can thank the Wilponzies.

Hard to tell what's true and not true at this point, but if the story I heard is accurate and the thing that blew up the deal was Jeff Wilpon wanting to remain as GM after Cohen took over then the Wilpons are out of their minds.

I really feel for Met fans. Nobody deserves this kind of abuse from a team owner in this city.

Great comment in NY Times column by Michael Powell "The Wilpons call to mind that family down the street that talks of selling the old house even as they insist any new owner must let their son retain the master bedroom." His article basically says that Mets and Knicks are being killed by Nepotism. Wilpons=Dolans where the son is given the business because he is the son, regardless of ability. We are doomed until these two families fully divest themselves of NYC sports franchises.

The literal and figurative money quote:

“If Steve Cohen was willing to pay $2.6 billion for a team that hemorrhages money and no TV revenue before coronavirus, the Wilpons can expect Josh to pay them 20 cents on the dollar now,” said a source familiar with Harris and Blitzer.

My response:

Good

As we wait on a decision from the @MLB on the baseball season, I'm excited to announce that the @Yankees and the @Mets will resume their training here in New York for the first time in years.

NY will review the teams' plans to make sure the trainings are safe

For the first time in forever, I’m pumped about our lineup and scared about our rotation.

What a difference a year makes. I hope you guys have a great couple of months. Always more fun when the Yanks and Mets are both good.

Every year I have a bet of some sort for a bottle of booze with a friend who is a diehard Mets guy. He's been on a bad run lately, I've won the last 4 or 5.

This year its a clear tossup. Most HR's between Judge and Alonso.

Well, not quite everybody. And I can think of one fan base that will be disappointed. Again.
