New York M appoints Mendoza as new head coach of ’44-year-old-ML coach X’
After failing to reach the postseason despite spending an astronomical amount of money, the New York Mets have hired a new man with no major league managerial experience.
Former New York Yankees bench coach Carlos Mendoza, 44, was named the new manager of the New York Mets, according to Sportsnet New York.굿모닝토토 주소
Previously, former Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell and former New York Yankees bench coach Mendoza had been considered for the job.
Of the two, Counsell seemed to be the favorite. He worked in Milwaukee with president David Stearns, who moved to the New York Mets.
However, the Mets chose the younger Mendoza, a 44-year-old with no major league managerial experience. Rate it a bit of a surprise.
Mendoza spent 13 seasons in the minors with the San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees. He has no major league experience.
He went on to manage the Yankees’ minor league team and then the major league team. This season, he was the Yankees’ bench coach.
Now, Mendoza will lead the New York Mets, a team with an astronomical amount of money. It will be interesting to see what the new 44-year-old manager brings to the table.
