Stephen Cohen, owner of the New York Mets, expressed regret over not being able to catch shortstop Carlos Correa.
In an interview with the ‘New York Post’ reported on the 18th (Korean time), Cohen expressed his regret for not being able to catch Correa, saying, “We really tried.”
Cohen revealed in this interview that he offered Correa a contract close to $300 million. Correa eventually signed with the San Francisco Giants for $350 million.
The Mets aren’t a team that needs a shortstop. Because we already have Francisco Lindor. “Correa is a good leader and a good person,” Cohen said. He will be able to play third base,” he said, considering using Correa as third base. He again expressed regret, saying, “We joined late.”

“Nobody likes to spend money, but that’s the price you have to pay,” Cohen said. I am devoted to my fans. If I have to spend money to fulfill that commitment, I will,” he said, showing no fear of investing.
Major League Baseball strengthened regulations by adding one more standard for imposing wealth tax in the new labor-management agreement. It was nicknamed “the Steve Cohen tax” because it was created for Cohen.
Cohen said, “Before, the tax was 70 cents on the dollar, now it is 90 cents. It’s like paying 20 cents more. It means that gathering together is not the Tao. You have to decide. It’s not a statement that disrespects other teams, but I’ve dealt with big numbers so far, so these numbers don’t scare me,” he said, revealing his confidence as a ‘big hand’.
