Steve Cohen has made most of his money in hedge fund management and investment holdings. Fortunately for the New York Mets, with great financial backing comes great investment. And the owner of the New York Mets has shown just that adage in the  2021 off season. The Mets have signed Scherzer on a bumper deal for three years amidst 2 more free agency signings. To add to their strength they’ve put in place Buck Showalter as manager too.

He launched Cablevision on Long Island in 1973 and sold the company to Altice for $17.7 billion in 2016.
