Billy Eppler Resigns As Mets GM

It turns out that Billy Eppler wasn’t okay with being cucked. David Stearns is the new President of Baseball operations and Eppler apparently has had a change of heart. He’s no longer interested in being the puppet for Stearns and has decided to resign from his position with the Mets.

“Billy Eppler led this team through a 101-win season and postseason berth last year and he will be missed,” owner Steve Cohen said in a statement. “We accepted Billy’s resignation today as he decided it is in everyone’s best interest to fully hand over the leadership of Baseball Operations to David Stearns. On behalf of the Mets organization, we wish him all the best.”

Eppler claims that he wanted Uncle Steve to have a clean slate.

“I wanted David to have a clean slate and that meant me stepping down,” Eppler said. “I hope for nothing but the best for the entire Mets organization.”

He’s not going to say the real reason obviously but we know why he’s stepping down. Eppler obviously didn’t want to play second fiddle after running the team for the last two years. I don’t think Eppler did a good job with the Mets. He blew the trade deadline last year. However, he did a pretty decent job this year when the team was in sell mode. Luisangel Acuna looks like a young player with serious promise.

Eppler isn’t the only person out of a job with the Mets. Buck Showalter was also fired earlier this week. Both guys end up being out as Stearns will now look to place his guys around him.
