When Steve Cohen bought the New York Mets following last season, he vowed things would be different from the Wilpon family’s regime. He was going to spend, and do everything in his power to bring a championship to Queens in the near future.

He delivered on that promise with the acquisition of Francisco Lindor in the offseason. They also made some subtle moves to bolster their starting rotation and bullpen.

Sure enough, Steve Cohen’s Mets were in prime position to buy at the Trade Deadline, with their sights set on a deep run in October.

Unfortunately, things haven’t gone well since then. After five straight losses, the Mets find themselves below the .500 mark for the first time since early May. And after the held a substantial lead in the NL East, they now sit 4.5 games behind the Phillies.

The blame will fall largely on their stagnant offense, and Steve cohen has seen enough.

“It’s hard to understand how professional hitters can be this unproductive.The best teams have a more disciplined approach.The slugging and OPS numbers don’t lie,” Cohen wrote on Twitter.

I’m not quite sure what Steve Cohen was trying to accomplish with these comments.

Maybe he was trying to light a fire under the squad, send a message, or maybe his frustration had finally just boiled over and he had to let it out somehow.

I’ve always thought organizations run better when the owner leaves the lashing to the GM or manager, but that’s clearly not how Steve Cohen’s going to be doing business.

In his defense, he sounds just like every Mets fans for the second half of the season.
