According to Deesha Thosar New York Daily NewsSteve Cohen’s $ 2.45 billion bid to buy the New York Mets is expected to be voted on Friday by 29 other owners of Major League Baseball.
Cohen said that Wilpon’s sale of the team had already been counted as a vote, as “only two owners stood on the fence in the” opposition “vote of one company,” according to Thosar sources. You can be sure that you will receive the votes you need. Cohen’s Favor — Managing a 95% stake in the team.
Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City must formally approve the transfer of the city’s property lease, but a solution is expected soon, according to the Mayor’s Office earlier this week.
As noted in Torser’s report, Cohen’s camp has a “real fear” that delaying approval from the mayor’s office can result in “competitive disadvantages.”
Cohen’s presumed approval should be finalized sooner, given that the start of MLB’s off-season coincides with the many roster holes that Mets needs to close this winter.
