New York Mets manager Buck Showalter was effectively fired.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reported that Showalter was told by the club that he would be fired if he did not resign. He was pressured to resign.먹튀검증
Accordingly, Showalter chose to resign rather than be sacked. The Mets then released a statement confirming that Showalter would not serve as manager in 2024.
Additionally, owner Steve Cohen told other reporters that newly appointed president David Stearns had decided to fire Showalter.
“When you bring in a new president, he’s entitled to bring his own people,” Cohen said. “It became clear that he wanted to go in a different direction. That was his right and I gave him that right.”
Showalter was appointed manager of the Mets ahead of the 2022 season after working as a fielder.
Cohen invested a huge amount of money and hated superstar players such as Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.
In 2022, his first year, he recorded 101 wins and advanced to the postseason, but was eliminated by the San Diego Padres in the wild card round.
They made aggressive investments ahead of this season, but when they failed to even advance to the postseason, Cohen pulled out his sword.
Showalter recorded 175 wins and 147 losses over two years.
It is reported that the Mets will hire a new manager soon.
