Yesterday, the Postclaimed that Steve Cohen, who'd put in a minority bid for the Mets last month, had suddenly lost interest in getting involved with the team. Apparently some people mistook SC's playing hardball as him dropping out, as he reportedly still wants a piece of this thing.
According to CNBC's Kate Kelly, Steve is still offering the hard-up for cash Wilpons $200 million for a 49% stake, but not before a few of his demands are met. Like we said several months back, the Big Guy needs to know that his voice will be heard in the clubhouse, as he has many ideas for how to turn this bitch around, including but not limited to new uniforms, down and out clauses and some fresh choreography for Mr. Met, who "needs to start moving his hips like he means it." To that end, says Kelly, Cohen is demanding "stiffer terms" than what was originally offered to him, like board seats in the organization and the assurance he'll have "significant say over how they do what they do."
