Alderson Favorite For Mets GM Job

Sandy Alderson is “more than just a frontrunner” to become the next Mets GM, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.  The former A’s GM impressed the Mets and will likely win the job if the next phase of the interview process goes well.

Jon Heyman of SI.com confirms that Alderson is the favorite and reports that the Mets seem unlikely to hire him in tandem with another executive. Logan White of the Dodgers, Josh Byrnes, Allard Baird of the Red Sox, Rick Hahn of the White Sox and Dana Brown of the Blue Jays are also candidates for the job.

Alderson was the A's GM for more than a decade and has since worked for the Padres and in the commissioner's office. He will meet at Citi Field with the Mets tomorrow. For more on the longtime executive, click here.

    Just give the guy the damn job already so he can get to work…

    • Seriously…..just give him the job and move on. I am already sick of this story. I want a manager and a change. It won’t happen until he is hired

    I love Alderson as a GM and would love to see him as he GM of the Mets, but I think everyone is overlooking Rick Hahn here. Tim made a good point in a chat a couple of weeks ago that Hahn could be the next AA or Jed Hoyer, two young very smart YOUNG Baseball personnel who were expierenced but know advanced Stats and such and did a great job. I think Rick Hahn could be exactly like AA and Hoyer and in my opinion, he should be given a chance to be the GM of some team.

    I went to Newtown, so did Don Rickles. Neither I nor Rickles made the baseball team.Leaving that subject, no doubt Minaya has some rough edges that have shown in his tenure as GM. A guy like Alderson will be more professional.As things go in the Mets’ universe, I’m sure Alderson will also get credit for all the players that come out of the minors that Minaya signed, and for better Latin American and Dominican operations if that works out.It seems that every Mets fan hates Minaya as bad as if he spent each day walking around Citi Field personally pooping on the grass.

    ummm….Al Harazin had a college degree. So I guess he was better suited to be a GM.lmao. the problem has always been the Wilpons. the lack of a defined well communicated and honest plan to the public has always been this teams undoing. if u dont know that Wainwright’s curvebal gave Paris the right to turn Omar into a pinata, then ur just naive.
    The Wilpons turned Omar down when he wanted to get Manny in LF in the 06 off-season. We ended up with Alou. who was injured most of the season.

    “It seems that every Mets fan hates Minaya as bad as if he spent each day walking around Citi Field personally pooping on the grass”

    the amount of lee-way brown people in charge have is ALOT less than non-brown people.

    It’s 2010 and I shouldn’t have to consider points like that. But, as much as I hate to say it, sometimes I feel the same way.

    People have bashed Omar even to the point of his desire to improve operations in Spanish speaking countries. They’ve taken that out of context and used it to say Omar is a racist. Yet so many playoff teams would be nowhere without their Latin American and Dominican operations. Why shouldn’t the Mets be a big player in the same countries?
