Mets To Interview Dana Brown For GM Opening

The Mets received permission from the Blue Jays to interview special assistant Dana Brown for their GM opening, reports ESPN's Adam Rubin.  Rubin says Brown, the first minority candidate, will meet with the Mets Wednesday.  Brown, 43, joined the Jays a year ago after serving as the Nationals' scouting director.  Brown made that jump as a stepping stone to a GM job, he told Chico Harlan of the Washington Post.

Rubin notes that Sandy Alderson, the reported favorite, will have a second meeting the following day, but it's just the completion of his first-round interview.  Second-round interviews should take place next week, according to Rubin.

The Mets were recently denied the chance to talk to Tigers assistant GM Al Avila.  So far they've interviewed Allard Baird, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes, Logan White, and Alderson.

    Is that a guy or a woman?

      Is that a joke or are you just slow?

        Dana is both a guy and a girl’s name, if you were not previously aware. There are no pronouns in this article, so it is hard to tell. I assume that it is a guy, but I wanted to make sure. My apologies for being curious.

            They have to choose between Dana and Sandy….hmmmm. He could be onto something. I wonder what the records are for GM’s with female names. lol

          If you took a second to check out the actual article you’d find a picture — and your coveted pronouns.

          Nice try.

    Where’s SPAN? I would have thought he’d make some kind of comment like “Nooooo! Sandy Alderson!” by now.

    • Yeah, without his regular spam on here, the board seems hollow, and the posts interesting.
