Josh Byrnes, Allard Baird Among GM Candidates Mets Will Interview

After removing Omar Minaya from the position, the Mets are wasting little time in trying to fill their vacancy at general manager. According to Jon Heyman, they're prepared to begin interviews this week:

The Mets will start their GM interviews by sitting down with Josh Byrnes, Rick Hahn and Allard Baird. Byrnes is the former Arizona GM, Baird the former Royals GM now in the Red Sox front office and Hahn the assistant GM for the White Sox. All three will come in to sit down with Mets higherups sometime within a week.

Byrnes, Hahn, and Baird do not make up the Mets' complete list, and other people believed to be under strong consideration are Sandy Alderson, Jerry DiPoto, Dan Jennings, Terry Ryan, and Gerry Hunsicker.

Once a new GM is in place in New York, he will go about looking for a new field manager to replace Jerry Manuel.
