Sandy Alderson Interviews, Concluding Mets Search For A General Manager

The New York Mets Tuesday concluded interviews for their vacant general manager position when they spoke with former Oakland general manager Sandy Alderson for a second time.

The team has also interviewed form Arizona general manager Josh Byrnes twice.

“Fred, Saul and I met with Sandy Alderson today at Citi Field,” Jeff Wilpon said Tuesday in a statement. “We will have no further comment on the process until we are ready to announce our new general manager.”

Alderson, 62, is considered the clear frontrunner after helping construct an A’s team that won four division titles, three pennants and one World Series during 15 seasons as general manager from 1983-97. He later worked for Major League Baseball before heading San Diego’s baseball operations department for four years.

So, Mets’ fans. Alderson or Byrnes? Which one do you want?
