Steve Cohen Started Talking Shit When the Mets Went Up 2-0 Before They Promptly Gave Up TWENTY Runs

Pete Alonso launched a two-run homer in the top of the first inning against the Braves on Wednesday night and it definitely wasn't a cheap one. He got all of it.

So Mets owner Steve Cohen took to Twitter and wanted to talk his shit a little bit. You know, as billionaires do when their baseball teams do something cool.

I don't know if there's some sort of inside Mets joke I'm not getting here as to why that wouldn't qualify as offense, but what happened immediately after Cohen hit "send" was remarkably unfortunate if you're a Mets fan.


That's right, the New York Mets allowed 20 runs in eight innings. One Mets fan even tried to warn Cohen that they weren't going to score again after Alonso's homer and Cohen wanted the guy to bet him.

I get that having a few billion dollars laying around affords you the luxury to do whatever you want with little to no consequences, but if you're a billionaire owner of a team with a fanbase that is both delusional and psychopathic, just stop tweeting. Who was helped by Cohen trolling his own fans before his team allowed a 20 spot? I actually hope @abates04 took him up on that offer and at least made a little money off the rich guy for having to watch that performance.

I want Cohen to start tweeting about deGrom again tonight. That might be the key nobody has figured out yet to actually score off him.
