    I am just wondering if this guy who made 9 figures in his career just wanted to coach so he could bring his cheating ways here and stroke his ego.

    I checked every day during the story to see if the site was fixed yet... and can't believe its actually back. I thought this was all over

    All jokes aside. A bit disappointed that they didn’t, publicly anyway, try to mend the bridge and offer the gig to Alfonzo.

    With the exception of the possibility of him entering Cooperstown as the current Met manager and with the cursive NY on the plaque* (as well as Alfonzo being more beloved among the fan base), he does tick off a lot of what the Mets were probably going for with the Beltran hire.

    Though sounds like Fonzie is, justifiably, going to see about employment with other organizations.

    *Side note, how much does this all hurt Beltran’s HOF chances?

    First ballot in 2022 is probably off the table, and I’d imagine he was a borderline candidate for most of the “eye test” or “if you have to think about it, don’t vote for him” type of voters.

    We never even got to sweat out the possibility, then breathe a sigh of relief that The Toothpick wouldn’t be our next skipper!

    Reports out heavily implicating Beltran as a key figure in the Astros sign stealing, with word that it was a process brought in by a new player.

    Haha, man, nobody could have predicted this but it's hilarious that this kind of bad PR the Wilpons hate is happening after they cheaped out on the obvious and professional choice of Giradi. Now we have a winter and ST with this drama swirling around and the clubhouse.

    His mole was exceptionally visible.

    I never saw Beltran as a future manager. Never saw ANY leadership skills out of him. His being named manager is a disappointment. Hope I'm wrong.

    Didn't we just finally get rid of a manager who doesn't know wtf he's he's doing? Now Beltran who has ZERO coaching experience is at the the top of the list? They reference his social skills and dual languages as part of the reasons like that means anything. WTF does this guy know about in game management in regards to hitting, pinch hitting, player swaps, bullpen etc. WTF am I missing here besides the "good story" part.

    A little awkward, sure. This current admin didnít fire TC, though ó the Alderson crew did.

    But everyone wanted Girardi largely because heís proven he can handle NY and win in NY. That was a no brainer. But getting the last guy to actually manage a NY team in the World Series involved with your first year manager isnít a good idea?

    Besides, itís a chance for there to be continuity from top to bottom for the first time in a long time. This team has dealt with too many disconnects between GM-manager and manager-bench coach in recent years. The GM has now hired his people and his manager. Beltran apparently loves TC. Let the manager hire his people too if thatís what he actually wants.
    Hate to tell you but Jeffy was the previous regime...

    And Girardi was a fit because he had a track record of winning, managing a bullpen, and getting the most out of young players - see the Marlins teams he managed and his last years with the Yankees. How's TC stack up in those areas?

    So yeah taking the guy you fired two years ago who consistently underperformed with the team and basically making him the manger in all but name again is pretty ****ing stupid.

    It would have been nice if Beltran had some words for the fans. Maybe he did but I don't understand spanish. By saying that am I now considered a racist?
    This so-called organization is pathetic. Gees I despise the Wipons, Brodie and Omar.
    Martino and Fisher will be up the managers ass the whole season on SNY.

    Plus I'm sorry but isn't a really weird - if not flat out bad - look to have a guy who you FIRED just 2 years ago - now sitting on your bench again. I mean most of these guys played for Terry. Seems like that would do a lot to potential undermine Beltran's authority as well. Seems like the most Mets thing ever to fire a guy and then put him in as a the most trusted advisor to the new guy you hire.....

    "We don't want you to manage our team anymore...but you can advise our new manager on how to manage the team" WTF
