The growing sign-stealing scandal led a third major league baseball team to sack its manager on Thursday. The New York Mets parted ways with new hire Carlos Beltrán before he even managed his first game. Beltrán played on the 2017 Houston Astros team that won the World Series while electronically stealing opposing catchers’ signals to pitchers. Houston fired general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch on Monday.
