Bob Nightengale of USA Today, who’s typically pretty tapped into the Twins, reports that former Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan “has no interest in going to New York as the Mets’ general manager.”
However, he adds that Ryan “will take a look” if a GM job for a “Midwest” team opens up. Ryan stepped down as Twins general manager in September of 2007 and indicated that he was tired of the day-to-day grind of the job that involved so many other things beyond his preferred focus on simply evaluating players.
He’s remained with the Twins in a high-level role, often scouting minor leaguers and advising current general manager Bill Smith, which is why it’s somewhat surprising to hear that he’d be interested in becoming a GM again regardless of the locale.
Teams would certainly be smart to pursue him, though.
