The New York Mets came into the season with World Series aspirations after a number of big signings this offseason. They have not met those expectations, and now it appears that they are undergoing an overhaul in the front office as a result of their struggles.

Some thought that the Mets may not be true World Series contenders. However, even their harshest critics heading into the season could have expected the disastrous season that has come to fruition.

They currently sit at the bottom of the National League East with no playoff hopes in sight, and as a result, a number of front-office members have lost their jobs.

According to Mets beat writer Anthony DiComo of, the Mets dismissed several longtime employees on Thursday, including pro scouting director Jeff Lebow, farm director Kevin Howard, performance director Jim Cavallini, and baseball development director Bryan Hayes.

Given how poorly their season has gone, it isn’t shocking to see some changes. But this widespread purge of the front office has certainly garnered reactions from many fans on social media.

It is interesting to see a number of these moves, largely because they are more towards about their prospect development program instead of firing those who mostly deal with the major league roster on a day-to-day basis.

Regardless, the Mets organization will hope these moves will help them moving forward as they look to put this dreadful season behind them.
