42 Year Old David Einhorn Makes 7 Year Old David Einhorn Very Happy

Yesterday at the end of his Ira Sohn presentation (after telling Steve Ballmer to do the right thing and quit Microsoft), David Einhorn added “Go Mets!” with little grin on his face, like he had a secret…which apparently was that he just bought a minority stake in the team.

The New York Mets have agreed to sell less than 49 percent of the club for approximately $200 million to David Einhorn, president of Greenlight Capital Inc., sources close to the deal tell ESPN’s Karl Ravech. The sale will not include a stake in SNY, the television network owned by the Mets, the sources said.

This kid is probably pretty pleased with the news:

    If the Mets were publicly traded, I’d short them in a heartbeat  

    • Guest says:

      great story.

      • Brian1284 says:

        You can still take action on them, they do play 162 games a year.  Its called sports betting.

    • Texashedge says:

       You would short them at a $400 million valuation?

      • VonSloneker says:

        The obvious answer would be short the Rangers at $500 million or Astros at $680 million, but both of those include TV.  So yeah I’d short the Mets stake bleeding $30 mil a year as the lesser team in a two team city.

        Disclosure – This guy is also short the LA Clippers, the Cubs, Manchester City and the Jets

    only a matter of time until the wilponzis are done, and met fans can wake up from the nightmare

    Will Mr. Met be replaced by a mascot that looks like the Green Lantern?

  8. The Wilpon says:

    The Mets? 

    Good luck. 

  9. Him? That can’t be David Einhorn. I’m *prettier* than this man!

    Must be nice……………..

  12. Seaman Bodine says:

    like everyone else that thinks baseball is a sport, einhorn is a bitch

  13. VonSloneker says:

    So the Wilponzis sold him the coal not the diamond inside.  SNY over the team any day.  It truly must be about the love of the game.  For that….respect

    – Guy who wishes he could afford a Lingere Football League franchise, “for the love of the game”

    • AmericanBandersnatch says:

      Until Einhorn demands that the SNY contracts be arm’s length.   Then the equation changes.

    Nice lazy eye, weirdo.

    Lets hope his skills as a team owner are better than his coloring skills. C’mon kid, you call this art?

    I’m getting some hookers, a big pile of coke, and going on the sick-ass bender I’ve always dreamed about. 200 mil oughtta cover it. That Madoff lawyer can suck my balls if he thinks he’s seeing any of this dough.
