Looks like Minority Einhorn is getting quite cozy at Citi Field. I’m sure the Skill Sets are sweating and not just because of this recent hot spell in NYC. Einhorn seems to fancy this period of the media swooning over him trying to feel him out as the white knight that will come in a save the franchise.
Right now, Einhorn can’t say much as the shysters are still finalizing the paper work but when the ink dries on his signature what happens then? How much say does Minority Einhorn have? As much as he enjoys taking his kids to Citi Field, I’m sure he didn’t write a $200 mil check just to visit the Mets dugout and avoid the lines at the Shake Shack .
Does Einhorn whisper in Sandy Alderson’ ear “don’t trade Reyes, we’ll pay him but keep it on the down low”?
How about on the day the deal is final, Einhorn announces that he is taking bids from area sculptures for a statue of Tom Seaver that will be placed in the newly renamed Metropolitan Rotunda with Jackie Robinson’s 42 and tribute to John McGraw.
How great would it be if Einhorn came out against the black unis and caps.
How about letting everyone know that #8 will never be worn by a Mets player ever again and as soon as Gary Carter lets the organization know he’s up to it, the Mets will celebrate Gary Carter Day with a number retirement ceremony
How about if his kid’s say to him “Dad bring back Banner Day”
Since Einhorn is a family man maybe he will take into account that not all family men run hedge funds but most work at jobs that pay far less. So he will institute family packs at Citi Field for reduced tickets and concessions. Not everyone can feed a family of four at the Shake Shack you know.
Maybe this all just my imagination running wild too. I don’t know what the future holds with Minority Einhorn but from reading about this guy, he didn’t get into this partnership to sit back and watch the Skill Sets piss away what’s left of this organization. The next couple of months could be the most interesting and crucial months in Mets history.
