Mets owner Steve Cohen shouts Steven Matz’s agent on Twitter: ‘Never seen such unprofessional behavior’

New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s Thanksgiving Eve has not had the best start. St. The Louis Cardinals have reportedly signed a deal with starting pitcher Steven Matz. The deal is reportedly for four years and worth $ 44 million.

Matz is from New York and played for the Mets ahead of the regular season in 2021 (which he spent with the Blue Jays.) Cohen took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to tell that he is not thrilled with Matz ‘decision because he was under the impression that the left wing should be reunited with the Mets. The Mets owner specifically called up Matz’s agent, Rob Martin.

Here’s what Cohen had to say:

“I’m not happy this morning. I’ve never seen such unprofessional behavior shown by a player’s agent. I guess words and promises are indifferent.”

Martin responded to Twitter, writing: “We are aware of Mr. Cohen’s tweet. It’s unfortunate that he chose to take his frustrations to Twitter. I do not want to do the same, and instead take the big road that is consistent with both my character and our client’s character. “

Here is Martin’s full statement:

So far, this is all Cohen has said on social media about the case. He has not liked or responded to any tweets about the free agent’s current situation. However, Joel Sherman of the New York Post spoke to Cohen and shared some quotes that the Mets owner gave him about the case.

According to Cohen, he was told that the Mets were “Matz ‘first choice” in free agency.

“Just talked to Steve Cohen on the phone. He was angry that the Mets were being persecuted by Matz and his agent – not the other way around – and told that NYM was Matz’s first choice, that there were pending cases with NYM and that he wanted to return, “Sherman tweeted.

Cohen added that he is not sorry for Matz, who was “a good Met”, but rather “the interaction with the agent.”

Former Marlins president David Samson discussed Cohen’s tweet in Wednesday’s Nothing Personal with David Samson. Listen below:

The Mets traded Matz to Toronto before the start of the 2021 season. The Mets hit Matz, now 30, out of high school.
