At 9:05 PM East Coast time I get a text from a buddy of mine and I leave this blind item on twitter. I got this before a lot of folks were reporting it on twitter.
Just heard from the grapevine that the Mets fans are getting their ownership wish. Can’t 100 percent confirm it right now and it’s a total blind item.— Keith B (@Mediagoon) August 29, 2020

I posted that blind Item about Cohen right after I got a tweet about it at 9:05 pm. This is one of those old school crazy nights from back in the day that @metspolice and I used to deal with. Also a lot more about the Arod thing behind the scenes.— Keith B (@Mediagoon) August 29, 2020
I texted some folks that I trust the info before hand. I also heard ARod's group was going to be out of the running

might not be Cohen. I do believe my original source to be accurate because of how they found out. Also
what ever happened to the anonymous bidder?
A-Rod said in a statement to the Athletic that they made a record deal. But for many reasons his candidacy was dicey. Not only is the MLB record holder for longest PED ban, but his group was very piecemeal, with contributions by many.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 29, 2020
The Harris-Blitzer group, which owns the 76ers, is the 1 group involved that could have avoided extensive vetting, as they are approved by the NBA of course and could have sealed things in a month. Sources say they would retain interest if Chief’s deal falls through.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 29, 2020
And then there were four.Read more here.
