Carlos Beltrán’s indispensable role in the Astros’ 2017 championship was perhaps the thing that surprised me most as I reported my book ASTROBALL - and helps to explain why the Mets just made him their manager.— Ben Reiter (@BenReiter) November 1, 2019

Carlos Beltrán is the Mets manager, per various reports.— Rich MacLeod (@richmacleod) November 1, 2019
I truly believe that this is an excellent move by this franchise and the best route they could’ve taken shy of Joe Girardi.
Beltrán has proven himself in NY and is widely respected. Let’s see what he can do here. #LFGM
Carlos Beltran about to manage, play center field and bat 5th in the Mets lineup in 2020.— Jake Brown (@JakeBrownRadio) November 1, 2019
Imagine if Carlos Beltran gets Terry Collins as his bench coach. Perhaps he will ask that Brad Emaus is his hitting coach. #Mets— Michael Baron (@michaelgbaron) November 1, 2019
More seriously, glad to have Carlos Beltran on board as #Mets skipper. Whatever the W-L record turns out to be, his tenure will be worth it just to watch heads pop like zits among the idiot wing of the fandom.— Jason Fry (@jasoncfry) November 2, 2019
You animals turned on Carlos Beltran as a player and you will turn on him as manager and demand that he's fired. I don't necessarily feel being a manager is the best fit for the Mets, but I'll stand by him knowing he's going to bust his ass to be successful.— SaltyGary (@SaltyGary) November 1, 2019
Good for Carlos Beltran. At least some serious Mets pedigree and respected by his peers. No experience but much easier sell to the fans than Perez, Pat Murphy or Blake Shelton. #LGM2020— Dave Avery (@davreyavery) November 1, 2019
I just want to know if all you folks who are happy about Beltrán being named the manager
the same ones who bitch about his non swing in the playoffs.
