The Mets announced the hiring of ex-Cincinnati Reds GM Wayne Krivsky. He’ll be a major league scout for the Mets. Obviously, having an ex-GM on the staff when the current GM is rumored to be on the hot seat will lead to speculation. We’ll see if that has a foundation or not in the coming months. Krivsky and Omar Minaya have known each other since their days working together for the Texas Rangers in the 1980’s. Krivsky has local roots as well, he’s a 1972 graduate of New Canaan (CT) High School.
