Former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes came in for his second interview for the Mets’ general manager vacancy today. This time, Byrnes met with Mets owner Fred Wilpon, team president Saul Katz, and COO Jeff Wilpon.

According to team’s Twitter feed, Jeff Wilpon released the following statement:

“Out of respect for the candidates and the ongoing process, we will have no further comment on the meeting.”

I guess the Mets got tired of describing every meeting as “productive.”

Former Athletics general manager and Padres CEO Sandy Alderson — who many view as the favorite to land the job — is scheduled to come in for his second (or third, really) interview tomorrow. According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, the Mets could make an announcement as soon as Friday, which just happens to be an off-day between Game 2 and Game 3 of the World Series.
