Carlos Beltran will interview for Mets manager job
Carlos Beltran appears to be a candidate for the vacant New York Mets managerial position.
Beltran will interview with the Mets in person, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. He spent seven years playing for the franchise and has been linked to other managerial posts since retiring.

Beltran obviously lacks hands-on coaching experience, having worked in the Yankees’ front office since his retirement two years ago. It remains to be seen how much that matters to a Mets organization that clearly has designs on winning as quickly as possible. That’s especially true when there is a more accomplished candidate in the running for the same position that many Met fans would like to see get the job.
