Everything is coming up Cohen! Even "bad" Mets news somehow turns out perfectly for the Mets new owner as Robinson Cano's most recent PED suspension opens up the bottle neck at second base for the 2021 season. The once perennial All-Star second baseman forfeits his season, his position and most importantly, his $24 million paycheck, paving the way for MASSIVE possibilities. Not only will Jeff McNeil get to return to his natural position, but the Mets now free up the money of their second largest contract.
What does Uncle Stevie plan on doing with that money you may ask? "Spend it on players." This guy is the real deal, pumping money back into his investment and making the team even better than it was before. Kyle and I discuss what that means for players' positions, acquiring new talent and the future of the 38-year-old tumor that still has 2 years and $48 million left on his deal. Oh yeah and we may turn Bobby Bonilla Day from a negative to a positive like only Uncle Stevie can, by paying tribute to the Finesse God.
We also bid farewell to Terry Collins, discuss Noah Syndergaard's progress, pick our 2021 standouts and track the Mets' front office moves.
