As the Texas Rangers get ready to host the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the A.L.C.S. some reports buzzing around N.Y. is that the Mets may seek permission to speak to Daniels after their post season run is over if they haven’t decided on a GM yet.
If the Yankees beat the Rangers this week the Mets could conceivably ask to speak with Daniels at worst the following Monday Oct 24th if they go 7 games. Now if Texas just happens to advance to the W.S. the Mets would probably have to wait at least until Nov 5th to seek permission and by that time the Mets most likely will have made a decision.
So here is the question. As a Mets fan would you rather lose a chance at interviewing and possibly having Daniels as the Mets GM if it meant that the Yankees would not advance to the W.S.?
