Looks like the end of the Matt Harvey era. The Mets just designated him for assignment after he refused to accept a minor league assignment.

I'm sure he's out drinking and celebrating. He's at least good at that.

So rumor has it the Mets hired Carlos Beltran as their manager.

 

Since he was the only player to be named in the Astros cheating scandal, wonder how that will play out?

 

This can only happen to the Mets - guess they didn't adequately vet him.

Shoeless Joe and I were good buddies. He was the better overall hitter - I was the better outfielder, but hit with more power.

 

Even taught him to write (at least his name).

He never received a penny. Had to barnstorm under various names to make a living.

In hindsight was Judge Landis too harsh?  Consider Paul Hornung's punishment.

Think Landis was hired to make a point and he did. Of the "eight men out," four deserved to be suspended for life, three should have been given a year and one should have received a fine.

 

Hornung was warned - he received the correct punishment. (It was proven he and Alex never bet on their own games.)

 

And another good college quarterback who was told he needed to play another position to make it in the NFL.

If Cora is proven to have done the same thing in Boston as he did in Houston, a lifetime ban is a possibility.

Here's the question of the day - will Beltran be the only survivor of the people named in the report or do the Mets cut their losses now?

 

If he stays, it will make an interesting Spring Training with the press and the fans.
