New York Mets manager Buck Showalter has been effectively fired.
Showalter told local reporters on Tuesday that he is resigning as manager.
Mike Puma of the New York Post reported that Showalter was told by the team that he would be fired if he did not resign. He was pressured to resign.
Showalter chose to resign rather than be fired, and the Mets released a statement confirming that Showalter will not be the manager in 2024.
Owner Steve Cohen also told other reporters that newly appointed president David Stearns made the decision to fire Showalter.
Cohen said, “When you bring in a new president, he’s entitled to bring in his own people. It became clear that he wanted to go in a different direction. That was his right and I gave him that right.”
Showalter took over as Mets manager ahead of the 2022 season after a stint on the sidelines.
Cohen spent a lot of money on the team and brought in superstars like Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.
In his first year, in 2022, the Mets won 101 games and reached the postseason, but were eliminated in the wild-card round by the San Diego Padres.카지노사이트
After investing aggressively in the offseason and failing to even make the postseason, Cohen fell on his sword.
Showalter went 175-147 in two years.
The Mets are expected to hire a new manager any day now.
