I just received this missive from Mets owner , Jeff Wilpon !! Many underlings died to get me this information !!!
Dear Mets Fans:
As you may know, earlier today we completed the initial round of interviews with six talented candidates to become the new General Manager of the New York Mets.
Each was extremely impressive – Allard Baird, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes, Sandy Alderson, Logan White, and Dana Brown. All reiterated their desire and interest in pursuing this opportunity.
We will be in direct communication with each as we narrow the candidate pool by early next week. We subsequently will invite the leading candidates back to meet with Fred, Saul, and me.
We have an outstanding group from which to select our new General Manager. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
Translation – Alderson already hired, Mike Cubbage Wally Backman will be the next manager !!!
