While many think Sandy Alderson is the man, the Mets are interviewing several other men for the top job this week.
Today, Steve Popper of the Bergen Record reports, was former Royals GM Allard Baird. Baird, a well respected scout, has been with the Red Sox for the past few years. His tenure with Kansas City was a tumultuous and highly unsuccessful one, but his supporters say much of that had to do with interference with ownership.
Hmm . . . well-respected, scouting background, GM stint screwed up by ownership. Sounds like someone we know!
Oh well. After Baird comes White Sox assistant general manager Rick
Hahn tomorrow, former
Diamondbacks general manager Josh Byrnes on Wednesday
and Alderson at the end of the week.
I like to mock the Mets — oh, you know I do — but I have to say it: I am quite impressed with the men they’ve considered for the job, and the seemingly methodical manner in which they’ve approached their GM search.
