The Yankees may be in the playoffs, but the Mets' search for new management is keeping them in the Big Apple headlines as well. The latest…
- Pat Gillick has removed himself from consideration for the general manager's job, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Gillick said he's interested in being a GM again, but he would prefer to work for a west coast team closer to his Seattle home.
- The Mets will talk to Sandy Alderson about their GM vacancy and he's interested, according to Andy Martino and Christian Red of the New York Daily News (Twitter links). If Alderson did end up running the Mets, Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman thinks it's unlikely that Tony La Russa could join his old Athletics boss in New York. (Twitter link)
- Bob Nightengale of USA Today hears that while a GM job in the Midwest could tempt former Twins GM Terry Ryan, the Mets opening doesn't have the same appeal (Twitter link).
- Matthew Cerrone of Metsblog.com expects New York to make just one front office hire and thinks the rumored "senior advisor/junior GM" concept for the Mets front office has been scrapped.
