Beltran out as Mets Skipper

Recommended Posts

They had to do it once his name was mentioned. And now he is not an active player that can be protected by the players association.

I do feel bad for Beltran.  He wasn't implicated or directly accused of anything in the report, right?  But that cloud was going to hang over him his whole time with the Mets. I think the Mets had to make this move.  Unfortunate.

Why couldn’t we just hire Girardi.  He is guy I wanted for the past 2 years 

I wanted him there to even though I am a Yankee fan. Next up. Buck Showalter.

And now, just a month before Spring Training, the Mets have to compete with the Astros and Red Sox to hire a manager.  Sheesh!

Feel bad for Bellichek and Brady too?

Might want to do some additional reading.  He was absolutely involved and implicated.  He's a cheater, plain and simple.

If by "unfortunate" you 100% justified, sure.

I can’t wait until Steve Cohen takes over the team 

I see Bruce Bochy going to Houston with Dusty Baker as an outside chance and Buck to the Mets.

I always thought it was bad karma to hire him , kind of like the Red Sox hiring Buckner to manage them , every time I look at him I think of 2006. Let Collins babysit for a year , the new owner is going to fire everyone next offseason anyway , if it’s true he’s going to have full control sooner rather than later .

I would be happy with Buck.  We need a guy with experience. We are a “win now” team.

Based on what mlb report had indicated, and this was a court of law, there is no way they would convict Beltran. 

Just wish MLB would have been more forthcoming.

Mets never catch a break.  Even when it's not ownership doing the bungling.  I had hopes for Beltran.  Took me a while to accept it and now this. What now? Showalter or bring back Collins?  Sucks.

Buck is the perfect manager for the Mets but just one problem. This GM !!  He wants a puppet and Buck isn't one.

Mets do this to themselves. Girardi wanted to be here. I’m a diehard Met fan but our owners might be the worst ever even more that Christopher Johnson lol.  Brodie is not a GM he is a sports agent.  Thank God Cohen is coming

He didnt need protecting. 

He was accused and found guilty of nothing other than having been interviewed and cleared

Ownership of both teams sucks.  But given a choice, I'll have the Wilpons and everyone in the Mets front office walk the plank into shark infested waters.

Yeah, I hear you but this isn't a Girargi thing. 

They didnt want him.  He refuses to use analytics, hes old school and he won once in 10 years with good teams.  And for bonus points hes a pain in the ass to ownership.  

Has nothing to do with Brodie or Johnson.  Beltran was forced out bt the media, not MLB.  This all went down through no fault of the Mets.  I get the fanbase hates management but come on, had nothing to do with Brodie, Wilpons who ever

Bochy is the perfect choice for them. But this owner will go with Dusty if he can't get Bochy out of retirement.

I get it but a lot of Met fans wanted Girardi.  Nothing against Beltran but I trusted Girardi more

Fans want the name they recognize.

Beltran was a great player, Girardi a post game interview every night.

Lot of Mets fans were more than happy with Beltran

They didn't need to. They had a manager.  I am talking about Houston not the Mets.

If they had wanted Dusty, they would have interviewed him in the first round. Rojas and Muelens are the reported leaders in the race.

Its Bullsh*t... If you take down Beltran... you have to take down them all... This is a big cluster... Don't have a double standard... He was a Player at the time. 

If this is how its going to go.... burn it all down.... Next Altuve and Bregman

What?

They didnt interview either when they interviewed and and hired Beltran in November

Apparently E Perez was their 2nd choice so who knows what's going on today

Look you are confused I said the best manager for the Mets now is Buck Showalter and for Houston it's Bruce Bochy.  With Baker an outside chance for the Astros job.

I don't get why MLB allowed the press to run wild with this one, allowing one and one player only to be punished for what the Astros and Red Sox did.  

Because he was hired became Mets manager.  If he passed on the Mets his name is forgotten

So when you read "Beltran out as Mets skipper" you were expecting what, football talk?

LOL
