The latest from the 'only the Mets' file

It's almost as if the Mets don't want to be overshadowed by the Dodgers in ownership nuttiness.

Or maybe it's that they can't go more than a few days without an "only the Mets" moment.

Friday, the New York Post reported that a guy named Steve Cohen is the front-runner to buy a minority stake in the Mets.

Also Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported on its front page that a guy named Steve Cohen is the subject of a government investigation, because trades made in one of his accounts were suggested by two former employees who pled guilty to insider trading.

Yep, same Steve Cohen.

You really can't make this stuff up, can you?

So the Wilpons, who are in financial trouble because of their involvement with Bernard Madoff, are now going to sell a stake in their business to a guy under investigation for shady financial dealings?

At least Cohen, who runs the SAC Capital hedge fund, seems to have real money. Forbes estimates his net worth at $8 billion, and the Journal said makes $1 billion a year.

To be fair, the Mets insisted to the Post that there is no front-runner.

Then again, these are the Mets.

I have to admit it Knobler, you're pretty good at shooting fish in a barrel. Now if you could just do some investigative reporting on who robbed you of your hair. Lol... You're not the only one who can hit below the belt. It really doesn't take much intelligence or effort, which is the reason why you're such a great reporter. Keep up the good work baldy!
