Mets owner Steve Cohen made the announcement via Twitter that Jared Porter would no longer be the team’s GM after he admitted to sending explicit text messages and pictures to a female reporter back in 2016 while he was with the Chicago Cubs. Cohen referred to his introductory press conference where he discussed “the important of integrity,” saying “zero tolerance” for behavior like that of Porter will be in the organization. Of course, the news is fresh and the Mets wanted to first make the decision on what to do with Porter.
