Luis Rojas’ familiar New York Mets role earned him the manager job

The New York Mets were going with Carlos Beltran as a first-year manager and were flawlessly moving along until the unexpected developments of a baseball cheating scandal interfered.

From all reports, Rojas is finalizing a multi-year deal to be the next manager. The official word should come Saturday at Citi Field with Mets Fan Fest serving as the backdrop.

They went rapid with the move and had no choice but to get this under control. They were quicker to find a replacement than the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox, who saw their managers dismissed as a direct result of the scandal.
