On December 13, 2020, the New York Mets announced that the club had named Jared Porter the team’s 14th General Manager in franchise history. Porter agreed to a four-year contract. In just over a month since then, the team had made some blockbuster trades for stars like Francisco Lindor, Carlos Carasco, and Joey Lucchesi. Things were looking up for the Mets.
However, yesterday, the same day that the team announced the Lucchesi trade, new majority team owner Steve Cohen tweeted that the team had fired Mr. Porter. What the heck happened?!?
