Carlos Beltran Mets

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sport

Just over two months after he was hired, Carlos Beltran is no longer the manager of New York Mets.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Beltran resigns from this role after being involved in the entire controversy surrounding the stealing of signs at Houston Astros.

According to sources, Beltran resigns as manager of #Mets.

This is not necessarily surprising as it would have been difficult for Beltran to keep his job. If he hadn’t resigned, the Mets would likely have fired the former all-star outfield player.

All of this comes after Astros manager A.J. Hinch and Alex Cora have been sacked over the past few seasons because of their role in separate scandals.

Needless to say, Beltran’s decision was accompanied by a number of responses from the MLB world.

Incredible that Astros and Red Sox #Mets fraud cost their manager.

And hey, at least one Mets officer has already reported what a shame it is.

This will put Mike Piazza Drive in the spotlight.

This is similar to the Red Sox script. Beltran’s resignation is a signal to future employers.

This is the second time Carlos Beltran has been caught ruining the Mets.

In a way, Beltrán is the most successful manager in Mets history. I’ve never lost a game. Take the haters.

What a terrible day for #Mets & an extension of a terrible week for #MLB. It’s amazing how a scam scandal with the #Astros can have such profound and negative effects on the #Mets.

Carlos Beltrán was also a promising and exciting employee.

Sad moment for the team.
