Josh Byrnes had his second-round interview yesterday. Today, Sandy Alderson is with the upper brass for round two. By Friday, it seems, the Mets may have their new general manager in place.
I’m very intrigued to see who comes out on top of this. My hunch – and all signs – are pointed to Alderson. But Byrnes is getting paid a hefty sum by the Diamondbacks over the next few years, so he could come at a bit of a bargain.
(But if the Wilpons are looking to save by scrimping on a GM’s contract, there’s a lot more to worry about.)
In the end, I think Sandy will be the next guy to look to – and hopefully not complain about – as the head of the team.
And I’m very, very happy about that.
