Mets General Manager Jared Porter lasted one month and five days.

Hired on December 13th, the 41-year-old Brodie Van Wagenen replacement was shit-canned Tuesday morning by new owner Steve Cohen:

What happened is that Porter admitted to sending lewd pics to a female reporter back in 2016, when he was working for the Chicago Cubs.

Jeff Passan at ESPN with details:

“The woman, a foreign correspondent who had moved to the United States to cover Major League Baseball, said at one point she ignored more than 60 messages from Porter before he sent the final lewd photo. The text relationship started casually before Porter, then the Chicago Cubs director of professional scouting, began complimenting her appearance, inviting her to meet him in various cities and asking why she was ignoring him. And the texts show she had stopped responding to Porter after he sent a photo of pants featuring a bulge in the groin area.

Porter continued texting her anyway, sending dozens of messages despite the lack of a response. On Aug. 11, 2016, a day after asking her to meet him at a hotel in Los Angeles, Porter sent the woman 17 pictures. The first 15 photos were of the hotel and its restaurants. The 16th was the same as an earlier photo of the bulge in the pants. The 17th was of a bare penis.

Reached by ESPN on Monday evening, Porter acknowledged texting with the woman. He initially said he had not sent any pictures of himself. When told the exchanges show he had sent selfies and other pictures, he said that “the more explicit ones are not of me. Those are like, kinda like joke-stock images.”

ESPN says they obtained these text messages back in 2017, but explained that the woman decided not to go public with the accusation because it would do irreparable harm to her career. She remained anonymous because of the threat of backlash in her home country, which isn’t specified in the story.

That should pretty much do it for Jared Porter’s MLB career. Maybe he can call up Thom Brennaman for some advice on what to do next.
