Oh well....so much for that.
Report: Melvin out of running to be new Mets GM
Looks like we're going with a young guy. I can be ok with it.
In regards to the agent, how would that work? Isn't there a conflict of interest?
I have no idea what the FO is doing. I'm thinking they passed on hiring Melvin after he publicly said he intended on keeping Callaway as the Manager if he got the GM job....just a day or 2 after Fred Wilpon suggested he wasn't sold on Callaway.
As far as conflict of interest goes, I'm not sure if there's a certain protocol or rule in place that doesn't allow an agent to become a GM.
That being said..I do know the team being owned by the Wilpon's is definitely in direct conflict with most of the mets fans' better interest.
Here's an update on that....
Reports: Mets closing in on Van Wagenen as GM
Mets hire Brodie Van Wagenan to be GM
Mets agree to hire agent Van Wagenen as GM
Brodie Van Wagenen says Mickey Callaway will stay
Mets GM: Callaway stays and hopefully deGrom
Would love to see us grab either Ramos or Grandal at catcher. Get 2-3 relievers as well. Those are in my mind the most glaring needs.
Ramos would be okay....but Grandal didn't exactly do himself, or his team any favors late in the season, and he really hit the skids in the playoffs.
But who knows...sometimes a change a scenery...yada yada.
Word is we have interest in Grandal and Andrew Miller. I'm 100% on board with both of those moves. Miller coming off a subpar year but I still have faith.
I'd even bring back Familia.

No idea if it's media talk or if there is validity to it but would you be open to trading Syndergaard?
Obviously it would take a monster haul to move him but if we got a great package and then turned around and signed a Dallas Keuchel, are we in better shape?
