Steve Cohen Sends Fred Wilpon A Message

The short version: suck it. The longer version:

New York Yankees third baseman Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez was seen having dinner at Gabriele’s Italian Steak House in Greenwich Monday night. Rodriguez dined with his nephew, along with SAC Capital Advisors founder Steve Cohen and his wife Alex of Greenwich.

While it’s not mentioned, one could assume Steve fed A-Rod his steak Cameron Diaz-popcorn-style so as to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on the third baseman’s bod in anticipation of the next Subway Series. If that images stings, good. It was meant to. Of course, it didn’t have to be this way, Fred et al. But you people made your bed and in it you must lie. If it wasn’t clear before, you can kiss the managerial and coaching wisdom SC was going to share with you good-bye. His energies are going to another team now, a team who appreciates his ideas. Who do you think was in Tampa last week helping Derek rehab his calf through a proprietary icing regimen? SAC P&L analysts is who. Good luck with Reyes’ hamstring. You’re gonna need it.

    I love the look on SC’s face here. “That’s right bitch. You’ll never eat popcorn out of these hands again.”

    I thought ARod was being fed by Cameron Diaz.

    What’s the ticker for Greenwich Capital? Time to buy some outs on those bastards. Jan 2013 outs are probably better so I don’t get too nervous about this sweet idea.

    So A-Rod was the big winner of the Dream Date contest sponsored by the Greenwich Rotary Club?  I’m calling foul.

    Wooing has been players to the Mets = bad management skills.

    Hi person who apparently has zero idea about the stories this post was based on (and zero reading comprehension)- Steve Cohen was a bidder for the Mets. The Mets rejected his bid. Now he’s showing them what they’re missing by rubbing up against the Yankees in public. At no time (in real life or in the joke/Bess’s fantasy world) has SC been doing anything to suggest he’d be trying to woo anyone to the Mets.

    Thinking SC is attempting to woo anyone to the Mets = really, really bad reading comprehension.

    I hope you burn for your stupidity.

    And this post would have what exactly to do with Greenwich Capital?

    Thinking that SAC Capital founder Steve Cohen has anything to do with GC, a firm that technically no longer exists is the new killing it, by which I mean kill yourself (do not pass go, do not collect $200).

    Was walking Greenwich Avenue last weekend, 1.5 hr. car count walking the ave. for those fellow car guys on the Street. (4) 2010/11 Bentleys (1) 2010 Porsche GT2 (3) 2008/2009 Ferrari F430s (1) 2000 Lamborghini Diablo.  Last year Summer in New Canaan spotted rare Porsche 959S and even Ralph driving his Aston Martin DB5 and later his McLaren F1LM parked.  Being able to spring for a $400k or near $1M car will always be the NKI.
