Congratulations to Carlos Beltran on Becoming the New Manager of the Mets

When the Mets hired Mickey Callaway two years ago there was a concern that he had no managerial experience.  Even though the team improved to a record of 86-76 is the second season he was fired.  I think new GM Brodie Van Wagenen just wanted his own man as manager.  Callaway's hiring was done quickly, while several candidates while many candidates were evaluated during this search.

Beltran certainly excelled as a player and may even make the Hall of Fame.  However, like Callaway, he comes back to the Mets with no managerial experience.  Beltran seems to have good "people skills" and can relate well to the Latino players on the Mets.  With any new hire, management never knows how well he'll work out and how long he'll stay at the position.

I certainly wish Carlos all the best as he assumes the position of Manager of the Mets.  Hopefully, he will bring the World Series to Flushing.
