Wanted: Mets GM
« Topic Start: September 20, 2010, 12:53:10 PM »
MLBTR has a hilarious (to me) new post about the New York Mets' search for a GM candidate. Check this out:

Quote
The Mets may have trouble convincing baseball’s top executives to take over as the team’s next general manager, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The Mets will fire or re-assign GM Omar Minaya after the season, according to Sherman, but that’s the easy part. Sherman reports that chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon has a reputation in baseball circles as a tone deaf, credit-seeking, second-guessing micro-manager who isn’t accountable or self aware.

Them's fightin' words! It's like a thesaurus of negative personal attributes. Clearly he has only one viable option: hire Jim Bowden.

When it comes down to it, there aren't many GM positions, and very few openings. I think a non-GM would be insane to turn it down, this year's hot candiate is forgotten next year
