"The New York Mets have terminated General Manager Jared Porter, effective immediately", Alderson said. "In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it". Cohen added, "There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior". He also worked as the Arizona Diamondbacks assistant GM from November 2016 until being hired by the Mets in December. Alderson said that Porter seemed "forthcoming" about what he had done.
The woman was not identified in the report.
"Being alone in a different country made it tougher", she told ESPN through an interpreter. "We will follow up as we review the facts regarding this serious issue".
Alderson said Porter has expressed remorse and "has previously apologized for his actions". The reporter moved to the USA from an unnamed foreign country to cover Major League Baseball, according to ESPN. She said she connected with a Cubs employee about the Porter matter at one point, but characterized that person as often combative and unhelpful. They set up plans to meet but never did, she said.
Porter met the reporter in an elevator in 2016 and exchanged business cards with her.
The explicit photos were sent in 2016, according to an ESPN report from Mina Kimes and Jeff Passan.
The woman no longer works in journalism, according to ESPN.
"This is extremely inappropriate, very offensive, and getting out of line". "Those are like, kinda like joke-stock images".
Who should be the man to take the Mets to the next level?
Porter began with the Red Sox in 2004 as an intern. At the time, Jared Porter was the director of professional scouting for the Chicago Cubs. The sports network said it obtained the text messages in 2017 but held the story initially because the woman felt going public with it would hurt her career. But given that Porter's behavior took place while with the Cubs, and given that it involved a woman working around the organization in a professional capacity, there's an onus on the Cubs to find out exactly what happened - including what various individuals knew or should have known, and how the Cubs' front office culture could have impacted Porter's behavior. She didn't want to identify the employee publicly because she feared retribution, according to ESPN.
Jared Porter, who was hired during the offseason, got the boot after the story surfaced at ESPN on Monday night.
"Had we been notified, we would have taken swift action as the alleged behavior is in violation of our code of conduct", the club said. I want to prevent that from happening again.
