Good episode? Give it some love!
On Tuesday morning, the New York Mets fired GM Jared Porter, just hours after ESPN reported that he had sent inappropriate and graphic text messages to a woman reporter back in 2016, when he was the director of professional scouting for the Chicago Cubs. Brittany Ghiroli, a national baseball writer for The Athletic, joins us to explain what exactly happened between Porter and the foreign reporter, how the incident is impacting the Mets, and who might have known about Porter’s behavior before he was hired.
