The New York Mets have hired Buck Showalter as their new manager, team owner Steven Cohen announced Saturday on Twitter.
Showalter, 65, takes over for Luis Rojas, who was fired after a season in which the team held on to first place for 103 days but ultimately finished 77-85 and missed the playoffs.
Great hire! Showalter is experienced, has a great work ethic and is always prepared. In other words, we’ll never lose a game because we were out-managed.
