Sandy Alderson’s Message To Mets Fans

Here is a message from Sandy Alderson to the fans.

Dear Mets Fan:

As you might have heard last night or this morning, we have completed the first round of interviews in the search for our new Manager.

We’ve invited Bob Melvin, Wally Backman, Terry Collins, and Chip Hale back for a second round of interviews while we are at the MLB meetings in Orlando. We are meeting with Bob and Chip today; and with Wally and Terry tomorrow.

We thank the four finalists and the other six candidates – Dave Jauss, DeMarlo Hale, Clint Hurdle, Don Wakamatsu, Ken Oberkfell, and Jose Oquendo — for their interest in the position and their time to interview. We will continue discussions with Dave and Ken about their roles in the organization and wish all the others the best of success.

Throughout the search, we’ve had productive and candid dialogue with every candidate, all of whom had good ideas toward how again we become a winning club. We expect to have a decision before Thanksgiving and look forward to sharing that news soon.

Thank you for your ongoing interest and support.


Sandy Alderson

Nice job, I love this open communication between management and the fans that we never really saw before with the previous administartion. We seem to get updates like this every week, and I love it..
