Don't think he was hired to teaching this kind of "hitting".

The New York Mets once again find themselves in headlines for all the wrong reasons, as the Athletic has reported on another incident that involves a former employee’s conduct against women.

According to the report, three women came to the Mets in the summer of 2018 to complain to the human resources department about Ryan Ellis, the hitting performance coordinator. Ellis made these women feel uncomfortable at work with his predatory behavior, as he would make off-handed comments such as telling one woman, “I stare at your ass all the time. If only I could have 15 minutes alone with you.”

So, um...2 1/2 years ago?

Come on, Mets.

By "handled in house", you mean swept under the rug.

Got it.

This harrassment of women in the Mets organization has a long history.

In 1998, Mets GM Steve Phillips admitted having sex with a Mets employee. She sued for sexual harassment, and the case was settled out of court.

Mickey Calloway. Ryan Ellis.

And you may remember this, too: https://slate.com/culture/2020/01/mets-rape-accusation-spring-training-1991.html
 

And what about this? Wilpons had to settle a case out of court for gender discrimination.
 https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/14/sports/baseball/mets-settle-case-with-executive-who-cited-discrimination-over-pregnancy.html



There is something in the Mets "culture" that leads to this kind of thing, it seems.

But maybe Steve Cohen isn't the one to lead such change: In the months since Steven A. Cohen became the owner of the Mets, he has been everything he never was as one of Wall Street’s most secretive money managers: affable and accessible.

Mr. Cohen has given news conferences and numerous interviews to the New York sports media — something he rarely did with the business reporters who chronicled every twist and turn in an insider trading scandal that led to one of his multibillion-dollar hedge funds pleading guilty to securities fraud charges in 2013.

And he has become something of a fan favorite on Twitter — frequently posting his thoughts on the Mets and about trades by other professional baseball teams. Mr. Cohen, 64, even seems to take joy in the back and forth with fans who have replied to him on Twitter.

But at his hedge funds, Mr. Cohen has long been known for a mercurial nature that has prompted him to lash out at traders he believes are not making him enough money. Now a recently unsealed gender discrimination complaint filed by a former top manager for Mr. Cohen offers a glimpse into his volatile temper and what some women have said is an openly sexist and hostile culture at his Point72 Asset Management hedge fund company, which is based in Stamford, Conn.

Fathers, don't let your daughters grow up to be Mets Fans. And especially not employees of the Mets.

The stupid comments on international players are probably not the things that will have the longest ramifications for MLB that Mather talked about. Rather, it will be his admission to manipulating service time.

Here's a good piece that should make all of MLB, especially its rogue commissioner, pause and reflect.

AS IF.
