Carlos Beltran stepped down as Mets manager on Thursday, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed.
It comes less than three months after appointing him manager and just days after MLB confirmed his involvement in the Astros’ cheating saga as a player in 2017. The Mets had been debating Beltran’s future since Monday and were conflicted on what to do, according to The Post’s Joel Sherman.
Beltran, 42, had been on shaky ground since the league revealed Monday that he played a pivotal role in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, as a player during the 2017 championship season.
Beltran was the only Astros player implicated in the report, which led Houston to fire general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch.NY POST
Holy. Fuck. This is the most Mets thing ever! Firing a guy before he even gets to manage a game. This scandal unraveling is absolutely bananas. I know there is going to soon be many other teams involved, the story is still developing but what team do you think will be next?
UPDATE: 12:49 PM: Marly Rivera has tweeted out a Carlos Beltran message.
