The Mets are back on the market for a new manager.
Carlos Beltran – who was hired just three months ago to replace the Mickey Callaway ax – broke up with the Mets after MLB announced on Monday that it had played a key role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal who shook the sport.
Here's a look at the names the Mets need to consider:
The new Mets Bank coach was a candidate to open Yankees management when Aaron Boone was hired and is highly regarded within the game.
ESPN analyst was a finalist in hiring Beltran. Could also be in the game for Red Sox.
The state's first base coach made a strong impression on General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen and the Wilpons in interviews.
The former Mets hit trainer was a finalist when Mickey Callaway was hired. He was part of the World Series winning teams with the Yankees and Nationals.
The new Mets first-base trainer has managerial experience (with the Astros in 2012; before the scandal) and received strong reviews for his work last season, which Triple-A Syracuse led.
The Mets Quality Control Coach interviewed for the opening of this off-season has returned to his current position. The son of Felipe Alou and brother of Moises Alou has the family tree.
