The Mets have a new owner in billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen.
Speaking today at a press conference, he said this about winning a World Series, via ESPN’s Jeff Passan:
“Mets owner Steve Cohen just laid down the gauntlet: ‘If I don’t win a World Series in the next three to five years — I’d like to make it sooner — I would consider that slightly disappointing.'”
Will the Mets win a World Series within three to five years?
Here’s our immediate reaction:

The Mets aren’t going to win a World Series within three to five years, so Cohen is going to find himself disappointed.
