Mets Hire Sandy Alderson as GM

The Mets will announce the hiring of Sandy Alderson at a press conference today at 2pm. He beat out Josh Byrnes for the job and I think you could call Alderson the “safe” choice. The Mets have little room for error with this hire and the reports are that Alderson is getting a 4-year contract. It’s a long term commitment to Alderson and the Mets really need to get this right.

The last two seasons have seen the Mets fall to a second league team with little for fans to get excited about. It’s Alderson’s job to change that. I don’t think it’ll be easy.

There’s some good information written about the direction that Alderson could be headed with the team:

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
