The Mets to interview Toronto’s Dana Brown for GM job

The Mets seem to be leaning hard toward Sandy Alderson, but their team Twitter feed just tweeted that they’re going to interview Blue Jays assistant GM Dana Brown on Wednesday.

Seems odd that they went through a whole week of interviews, including Alderson, and then set up a second interview for Alderson prior to announcing their interview of Brown.  The cynic in me wonders if this wasn’t a move inspired by the need to meet the league’s desire for teams to consider minority candidates before hiring Alderson (Brown is black).

Brown worked in scouting for Nationals and Expos before joining the Jays. In that time he was under Omar Minaya, who served as the Expos/Nats GM. So in the event that Brown does get the job, it would even be more awkward for Minaya to hang around in some capacity than it would if others got the gig. Which should make Mets fans really want Brown to get the gig, I presume.

    Didn’t the Jays hire Brown recently? The Jays have been adding talent to the front office and have been building up their scouting staff.

    You do realize, of course, that Wilpon and company could interview all the right people, conduct a flawless due diligence, weigh the pros and cons meticulously, and still make a horribly wrong decision, don’t you?

      Yep!
