The New York Mets, an emerging wealthy team in the Major League Baseball (MLB), parted ways with manager Buck Showalter and began reorganizing the team.안전놀이터
Coach Showalter said ahead of the final game of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies held at Citi Field in New York on the 2nd (Korean time), “It was an honor to take charge of the New York team twice,” and added, “I will not be returning as coach next season.”
Showalter, who signed a three-year contract with the Mets in December 2021, led the Mets to the postseason as a wild card last year and was selected as Manager of the Year.
Showalter, who was previously selected as Manager of the Year by the New York Yankees in 1994, Texas Rangers in 2004, and Baltimore Orioles in 2014, became the first coach to receive manager awards from four teams.
However, the Mets, who invested a large amount of money last winter, became the highest-paid team as of the opening day of this season, but were eliminated early from fall baseball with only 74 wins, 88 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.457.
In the end, Showalter took responsibility for the poor performance and left the team without completing the contract period.
The Mets are expected to embark on a major restructuring of the club. Billionaire owner Steve Cohen said, “We will hire a new club president and find a new manager.” David Stearns, former Milwaukee Brewers president, is being discussed as the Mets’ next president of baseball operations.
