Mets close to naming Luis Rojas new manager

The New York Mets are nearing an agreement with Luis Rojas to become the club’s new manager, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen informed reporters, including MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo.

The Mets informed Beltran, who was hired by the Mets in November, was out as the club’s manager three days after Beltran was the only player named in the league’s nine-page report summarizing the investigation into the 2017 Astros. Rojas, 38, has managed in the minors throughout the Mets system and was originally set to be the […]

Pelicans forward Zion Williamson excited ahead of NBA debut

Zion Williamson’s debut is emerging, with him set to make his long-awaited NBA debut on Wednesday night versus the San Antonio Spurs. The path back to the court hasn’t been easy for the No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 Draft, but he’s ready, at last, to play. “The rehab workouts are long and strenuous,” Williamson said Tuesday. “There were a lot of times where I wanted to punch a wall or kick a chair. It’s frustrating to not be able to move your body the way you want to, especially since I’m 19. It’s been tough, but I battled […]

Giants interview Jason Garrett for offensive coordinator position

Jason Garrett is no longer under contract with the Dallas Cowboys, effective Jan. 14, and that frees him up to seek employment elsewhere without Jerry Jones’ permission following the hiring of Mike McCarthy. Granted, the drawn-out and exceedingly awkward divorce from the Cowboys was his idea, but it cost him valuable time in finding a new role as a head coach — given how quickly teams were moving to fill their vacancies. There was still an opportunity he’d secure a role as someone’s head coach in 2020, however, as evidenced by the New York Giants seeking permission from the Cowboys to speak with Garrett prior […]

Historically, the Mets have been sensitive to criticism in the New York market. In recent days, there have been hard questions raised in the media about Beltran’s past denials about his role in the Astros’ cheating scandal and […]
