After being involved with Alex Cora in using technology to cheat during its World Series-winning 2017 season for the Houston Astros, Carlos Beltran got hired by the New York Mets to become the manager and his tenure in New York is about to come to a short end. On Thursday, Beltran told the organization it is best if he steps down, per Tim Brown.
With spring training a few weeks away, New York is not the only team that fired a manager or the manager parted ways with the team; the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros were also in the same position with Alex Cora and AJ Hitch.
Although the Mets are without a manager, the team has talented young players to build around with like Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Michael Conforto. The team is hoping for someone that can take them to the next step in becoming a playoff team and build off the progress of last season.
