Could Alex Rodriguez buy the New York Mets?

BRONX, N.Y. — Former New York Mets general manager Steve Phillips once quipped a clubhouse with Alex Rodriguez would be a “24-plus-one-man roster.” This was before A-Rod, a lifelong Mets fan, was slated to sign in Queens after 2000 as the piece to put the National League champions over the top. Yet, A-Rod would sign a record-breaking deal with the Texas Rangers and another with the New York Yankees and the rest, as they say, is history.

Yet, according to a report in the New York Post, a “24-plus-one-man” could come to fruition in the owner’s box in Flushing.

After Steve Cohen balked at buying the club, the latest suitor could be A-Rod.

The former shortstop and third baseman is reportedly valued at a net worth of $350 million. His fiancee Jennifer Lopez is worth closer to $400 million. So could it be the former third baseman and Jenny from the Bronx in Queens?

Certainly, it would take a larger group but having A-Rod as the face of the Mets would definitely inject some sizzle into that franchise.

Plus, there’s the added drama of being in the same division with Derek Jeter owning the Miami Marlins.

If you’re wondering how this would impact his Yankee standing, well, No. 13 might go back into circulation, although Casey Stengel and Yogi Berra went to the Mets and returned to have their numbers retired in Monument Park.
