Some relationships are not long for this world. Last week, SAC Capital's Steve Cohen was wining and dining the Mets owners at a steakhouse in Greenwich, and rumors circulated about his vaunt to the top as a preferred bidder for a $200 million minority stake in his favorite boyhood team. But after the feds started taking a closer look at Cohen's "Big Book" of stock tips, Sterling Equities, the team's owner is reportedly going back to rejected bidders and asking them to resubmit offers. Or, as "a source close to the situation" tells the Post, Steve's lost interest in them. Somebody knows how to win a breakup. [NYP]
