The New York Mets have fired general manager Jared Porter less than 24 hours after Jeff Passan and Mina Kimes of ESPN reported that he sent multiple unsolicited text messages and explicit images to a female reporter in 2016 when he was working as a scouting executive for the Chicago Cubs. Sports Illustrated host Robin Lundberg delivered the details of the story, including what Mets owner Steve Cohen said about the decision.
