Wishing my friend and New Yorker Steve Cohen, a successful MLB vote Friday to join Baseballs fraternity. He’s a lifetime fan. He’s wanted the team since the day I “Met” him. I’m sure he’ll get the great Met franchise back on its winning ways. MLB and the city need him. Go my man— Reggie Jackson (@mroctober) October 29, 2020
When shown the reports by the Post and Martino, a source told amNewYork Metro: "Not worried.""Cohen] will win in court," they said, if it ever got that far. "Besides, de Blasio needs bad PR like he needs a hole in the head."
I think that's reflective of my thoughts on the matter, too. Bill de Blasio can't run for mayor again thanks to term limits. He's not even popular with liberals such as myself, as he proved during his incredibly unsuccessful run for the Democratic Presidential nomination. If he drags this thing out, he'll only make himself less popular and lose anyway.
