When pictures and video of the press conference to announce the signing of David Stearns materialized, my reaction was shock. Not shock because Steve Cohen finally landed his white whale, as we all knew that was coming. Rather, the shock came from the look of Cohen. My wish would be to hear and see Cohen as little as possible. My guess is that the last time he made the rounds, he was wearing a Mets hat. So, it was quite surprising to see him hat-less. And he had a more hair than expected. And he was rocking the biggest combover since President Trump. It simply was not a good look for him.
As a poor boy, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around one person having a fortune in the $16 billion range, as Cohen does. Sure, it doesn’t mean he can go to the bank and lay his hand on all that money. But it’s hard to fathom that his ashtray money wouldn’t cover the finest hair-care regimen around. His wife’s an attractive lady. It’s surprising that she lets him leave the house looking like that.
My opinion is that he either needs to start a hair-growth treatment immediately or shave it off completely. It’s not too different from choosing to chase a 95-win team or tank for a better draft pick. Few want to be in the middle, combing your hair over to create the illusion that you’re not going bald. Or that your 75-win team is one player away from the playoffs.
