The Mets search for a President Of Baseball Operations may cause a delay in hiring a new manager. But If they want Showalter, don’t wait…
The Mets are stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place needing to fill openings for the top dog in their organization, a President of Baseball Operations, and a manager.
Ideally, the top spot is filled soon, and that person brings a manager in of his choosing.
But the baseball world does not wait, and sometimes Plan A has to become Plan B, which means if the Mets want the best, they need to move before then.
Buck Showalter is the best of the candidates being mentioned to replace Luis Rojas.
Competition For Showalter
The trouble is, though, the Mets are not the only team looking for a manager, and Showalter is already on the radar of the Padres, according to a report from ESPN’s Buster Olney.
