Steve Cohen now plans on updating the New York Mets sponsorship patch because it features ‘Phillie colors’
The New York Mets and Steve Cohen plan to re-do their sponsor patch on their jerseys for 2023 amid backlash from their fanbase.
Last week, the Mets announced a new partnership with NewYork Presbyterian Hospital and unveiled patches on the sleeve of their jerseys that were a giant white square with red trim and a red NYPH logo in the middle of it. I wrote about it here and how funny the patches looked and how dumb the Mets are for thinking they looked good on their jerseys.
Steve Cohen: New Mets Sponsorship Patches Incoming
It was a bizarre move due to the size of the patch and how big it was on the sleeve. Mets’ owner Steve Cohen said he had an email exchange with the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital CEO Steven Corwin and they mutually agreed to make a change going forward with the patch design.
Cohen then gave his reasoning, stating that they were going to change the patch color because “They’re Phillie colors” and that he and Corwin agreed they need a design that’s more “Met-appropriate” for their jerseys moving forward.
Sure, Cohen can blame the Philadelphia Phillies all he wants as the reason that the patches need an update but in all honestly, that’s the least of their worries. The patch is bigger than the new bases in Major League Baseball this season and having the small hospital logo in the center of them just looks stupid. It’s amazing how they even got approved in the first place.
But yeah, I’m sure the change is coming because of “Phillie colors”. Either way, just another blunder from the New York Mets organization, who continuously fail to get things right.
