Steve Cohen Wiki Bio
Steve Cohen is a significant step closer to becoming the owner of the Mets.
The Post confirmed that the MLB Ownership Committee approved Cohen as the team’s next owner, and sources said Cohen received seven of eight votes on the board. Sportico first reported on Cohen’s approval.
Next up will be the eight-owner Executive Committee, followed by the wholly owned group, when Cohen will need 23 of 30 votes for his $ 2.475 million purchase of the Mets to go through. Since the Mets will be voting for Cohen, he will really need only 22 of 29.
Cohen met virtually with the Property Committee earlier this month and the total property group vote could occur as early as the week following the conclusion of the World Series, with Game 1 on Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas.

That group could reactivate their offer if the opportunity arises. Another group led by Josh Harris, owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils, also bid for the Mets.
Steve Cohen will blow up Wilpons’ Mets’ archaic ‘tech
The possibility of the deal failing is less likely after Tuesday’s vote, as Cohen has overcome a key hurdle by buying the Mets from the Wilpons and Saul Katz. Cohen has already announced that if his purchase goes through, he will hire former general manager Sandy Alderson as team president.
That would be the first move of many, with Alderson building a main office and the baseball world waiting to see how Cohen could use his billions (the hedge fund expert is worth an estimated $ 14 billion) to run the team. who grew up supporting.
He already owns a percentage of the team, and if this deal goes through, Cohen would own 95 percent of the Mets, and the Wilpons and Katz would keep five percent.
