Carlos Beltran to be named Mets manager

Carlos Beltran is getting the job he sought.

New York Mets will hire Beltran as the team’s next manager, replacing the fired Mickey Callaway, as first reported by Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.

Beltran has no coaching experience, having only spent a year as a special assistant with the New York Yankees. He did interview for the Yankees’ open managerial position in 2017, which ultimately went to another inexperienced candidate in Aaron Boone.

The Mets, who are desperately in need of some good press, will bring back a player who was key to their success in the mid-2000s. In seven years as a Met, Beltran hit .280 with 149 home runs, and was a five-time All-Star. By all accounts, he really wanted this job, and now he has it.
