    Mets fire Porter after 38 days for explicit texts in 2016

    Jared Porter lasted just 38 days as New York Mets general manager, fired for cause Tuesday about nine hours after ESPN reported he sent sexually explicit, uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 while he was working for the Chicago Cubs. Sandy Alderson, who returned as Mets president when Steven Cohen bought the team on Nov. 6, said he was stunned by the report. Alderson said baseball clubs may have to rethink the depth of hiring background checks, although he cautioned information of this age and nature might not have been uncovered no matter the level.

    Astros' mustachioed superfan Valentin Jalomo dead at 81

    Jalomo, who had been attending games since the Astrodome opened in 1965, had been a season-ticketholder since 2007, but he rarely used his seat, opting instead to stand in the outfield concourse. Jalomo - who grew up in Taft, just outside of Corpus Christi, but lived in Houston and worked for Houston ISD as a bilingual teacher before retiring in 2002 - often was caught on camera during games due to his mustache, hairsprayed to a fine tip some six inches on either side of his face.
