Mets dismiss GM Scott

NEW YORK (AP) — Acting general manager Zack Scott will not return to the New York Mets. That’s according to a person familiar with the firing.

Scott was placed on administrative leave following an arrest on drunken driving charges in August. The dismissal is hardly a surprise after New York fell apart in the second half and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. President Sandy Alderson assumed GM duties with Scott on paid leave and already oversaw the firing of manager Luis Rojas.
