New York Mets move on from manager Luis Rojas after third-place finish in NL East

Luis Rojas was let go as manager of the New York Mets on Monday after two losing seasons.

The team declined its option on Rojas’ contract for 2022, making the announcement a day after finishing third in the NL East at 77-85 in Steve Cohen’s first year of ownership. The move was no surprise, the first of several significant changes coming again this offseason for a club in constant turmoil.

“I want to share such heartfelt gratitude to so many in the Mets organization for not only the last two seasons as manager, but for the last 16 years in a variety of roles,” Rojas said in a statement released by the team.

“We live in a results-oriented business, and am deeply disappointed for our staff and fans that we didn’t reach our goals this season,” he said.

I can’t wait to see how badly Cohen screws all of this up.

If the Mets are going to hire a big name hot shot General Manager Baseball Operations Guru, one would think hiring a Manager will wait until that person is on board.

I have no idea if he's even available but I would love to see Bryan Buxton on the Mets next year. I would like the Mets to get a CF and move Nimmo to LF. Ideally, the Mets spend some money on starting pitching as well.

Honestly, not sure what they can do for the lineup otherwise.

I would love to see Bryan Buxton on the Mets next year.

Ring, ring, ring...

Buxton: Who is this?
NYM: Hello Bryan, I'm phoning from the Mets. Just letting you know we're going to try to swing a trade for you.
Buxton: Who is this really?
NYM: The Mets. We're in the National League. Of major league baseball.
Buxton: Whatever. [Hangs up]
Wife: Byron, who was that?
Buxton: I think I was being pranked. They said they represented the Mets. And they called me Bryan.
Wife: Yeah, sounds like a prank. I don't think the Mets are a professional team.

I just find it amusing that the Mets and Angels finished with the exact same record as the Tigers.
