The New York Mets are officially eliminated from the 2023 Major League season and with this, they have begun planning the next campaign, for this, have hired David Stears to become their first president of baseball operationsas reported by Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
After having made big hires for this campaign and not obtaining the expected results, the owner of the Mets Steve Cohen expressed his desire to hire a president of operations to put order and supervise the management that is in the hands of Billy Eppler.
Cohen did not go far and reached an agreement with Stearns, who is a native of New York and who has become famous in the MLB after having worked for the last decade with the Milwaukee Brewers, being their baseball operations manager.
In that sense, ESPN journalist Jeff Passan indicated that David Stears will assume the duties of his new position once the current harvest ends of the Majors.
The New York Mets are experiencing one of the most disappointing seasons in recent yearsand after putting together a rotation with Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander as fundamental pillars, the team was always far from first place in the East Division of the National League.
The result was so disastrous that both elite pitchers ended up being traded to other organizations midway through the season. The team is currently second to last in its division with a record of 65-78, half a game out of last place..
Precisely Turnover will be one of the first departments the new president of operations will have to focus on since in addition to the departures of Scherzer and Verlander, Venezuelan Carlos Carrasco will not continue in the organization either.
