Logan White presumably didn’t make the cut as the Mets trimmed their list of general manager candidates following the first round of interviews, because Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he “will not be the Mets’ general manager and will remain with the Dodgers.”
Of course, with just about everyone assuming that Sandy Alderson will get the job it’s possible he’s the only candidate who actually made the second phase after the Mets reportedly interviewed six potential GMs.
Alderson completed the second half of his interview yesterday, touring Citi Field with chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and assistant general manager John Ricco. Depending on who you believe, Alderson is somewhere between a “heavy favorite” and “lock” to wind up with the job.
