Carlos Beltran Out as Mets Manager Before He Even Managed a Single Game

Chicago Cubs

And the cheating scandal claims another.

Before today, the Astros’ sign-stealing had cost the team’s GM and manager their jobs, their former bench coach his job with the Red Sox, and now the just-hired Mets manager his job:

With Beltran so prominently mentioned in the Commissioner’s decision, it was clear that he was among the more-involved players in sign-stealing scheme, and it was going to be very difficult for him to proceed as the manager of a club at this point. So, before he even manages a single game with the Mets – a team that had no involvement whatsoever in the scandal – he’s out.

Now the Mets join the Astros and Red Sox in looking for a new manager in mid-January. So weird and wild.
