Mets, Brewers GM/Managerial Rumors

Earlier today, the Blue Jays officially tabbed John Farrell as their next skipper.  The Brewers are still looking for their next manager and the Mets are looking to name their new GM.  Here's the latest, with more to come throughout the evening:


The Mets, as expected, interviewed former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes for a second time today, tweets David Lennon of Newsday.  Sandy Alderson, reported by many to be the frontrunner for the position, is scheduled to come in for his second interview tomorrow.  Both Lennon and Adam Rubin of believe that a decision could come as soon as Friday.


Dodgers Triple-A manager Tim Wallach is no longer in the running for the Brewers job, a "very good source" tells Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.  It would seem that there are four finalists for the job, two of which are White Sox bench coach Joey Cora and former Arizona skipper Bob Melvin.  Haudricourt suspects that Halos bench coach Ron Roenicke is one of the finalists as well.  Melvin still appears to be the favorite as he is well-liked by the Brewers' decision makers.

Roenicke, when contacted by's Adam McCalvy, refused to say whether he is among the four mystery finalists for the Brewers job.  Updated at 10:00pm.
