Yes, coaching hires aren’t all that exciting, but this is an interesting possibility to pass along. According to Kevin Burkhardt of SNY, Moises Alou is a candidate to be the Mets’ first base coach.
While the Mets have expressed their interest, Alou hasn’t decided if he will interview. Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com (via Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com) believes that Alou would prefer a front-office job in major league baseball, not necessarily one in uniform.
Alou, 44, is currently serving as the general manager for the Escogido Lions, the Dominican Winter League team managed by Ken Oberkfell, who also manages Triple-A Buffalo in the Mets’ organization.
It’s been hard to keep up with all the news flying around on the first day of the Winter Meetings, but something you may have missed is that the Mets interviewed Andy Van Slyke for their hitting coach vacancy today. Mets manager Terry Collins revealed that he is the first of four candidates for the job.
