New York Mets owner Steve Cohen remains confident in his club despite a 19-23 start to the season.

"I believe in this team," Cohen told SNY's Andy Martino. "I believe in the back of the baseball card. It's way too early to speculate on anything. It's May 16. I expect to make the playoffs. I know the fan base is frustrated, but it's still early. We're still very capable of making the playoffs. I fully expect to make the playoffs."

Cohen deleted a reply on X on Wednesday that appeared to allude to the Mets being sellers leading up to the July 30 trade deadline.

Cohen told Martino that he intended to send a direct message and wasn't indicating that the Mets would be sellers at the trade deadline.

The Mets have the league's highest payroll at over $305 million. They've made the playoffs in only one of three seasons since Cohen became owner in September 2020.
