Yeah I assumed from everything that was leaked about Beltran wanting TC that if he wanted the job it was his. And maybe TC would have taken that job if it was another team and not the Mets, wouldn't blame him if that was too weird a dynamic.

Thought I saw reports were that Terry would take it if offered, but the Mets want to go in another direction. Not sure how accurate that is, but SNY seems to back it up. So Carlos and Terry are on board, but BVW says no.

I know BVW wants to run a shadow government but does he really care who the bench coach is? Or did Jeff veto TC going into the dugout? I think the latter's more likely.

Beltran was named as apart of the Astros stealing signs scheme...

Beltrán: ‘I don’t call that cheating’

Beltrán responded to The Athletic’s latest report.

“We took a lot of pride studying pitchers in the computer – that is the only technology that I use and I understand,” Beltrán told The Athletic via text. “It was fun seeing guys get to the ballpark to look for little details.
“(In) the game of baseball, guys for years have given location and if the catchers get lazy and the pitcher doesn’t cover the signs from second base, of course players are going to take advantage. I don’t call that cheating. I call that using the small details to take advantage. I think baseball is doing a great job adding new technology to make sure the game is even for both teams.”

Those last couple of sentences are not good. What did he mean by new technology?

The Mets will circle the wagons on Beltran regarding any connection to this sign stealing scandal. We’ve seen them stonewall thru controversy before. This will be no different.

Not sure what he meant by new technology, but stealing signs - if you're doing it with your own eyeballs on the field or reviewing film - that's just part of the game to me. So long as you're not using technology in-game.

GEez. Beltran has been the Mets manager for 5 minutes and he's already in hot water.

On Wednesday, The Athletic reported that two other current managers were involved with Astros manager A.J. Hinch in devising the elaborate scheme.

According to The Athletic, recently hired New York Mets manager Carlos Beltrán, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Hinch all "played a key role in devising the sign-stealing system the team used" in 2017,

Beltrán ended his playing career with the Astros in 2017. Cora was Hinch's bench coach that year before he was hired by the Red Sox in 2018.

At least he's saying he wasn't aware of the camera they are talking about.
