Mets Owner Steve Cohen Vents Frustration Over Team's Recent Slump

Steve Cohen went on X after the Mets’ loss.

Mets owner Steve Cohen couldn’t contain his disappointment after the team’s 8-7 loss to the Giants on Friday night at Citi Field. The Mets had a comfortable 6-2 lead, but a late-inning collapse led to their fourth consecutive defeat.

Taking to social media, Cohen expressed his own frustrations and empathized with the team’s loyal supporters. “What a stretch, mind boggling. I know how disheartening this is for our fans. Ty for caring so much,” Cohen wrote.

The Mets’ recent slump has seen them lose nine of their last 11 games, with normally dependable reliever Reed Garrett faltering in the eighth inning against the Giants. The team is now eight games under .500, their worst record this season.

The downward spiral, which began in earnest on May 10, has been marked by several bullpen failures. These include two blown saves by Edwin Diaz in a series against the Phillies last week and a non-save situation against the Marlins where he gave up four runs in the ninth inning.

Despite Diaz’s scoreless seventh inning on Friday, the Mets’ hopes were dashed when Garrett struggled and Mark Vientos was thrown out by Matt Chapman on an infield dribbler to end the game. The team is now 15 1/2 games out of first place, leaving Cohen and the fans alike feeling disheartened.
