The Mets will be hiring a new GM after the season, and two prominent names have thrown their hats into the ring.
On Tuesday, Ron Darling told Bob Raissman of the Daily News that he would be interested in the GM job -- vaguely, before changing his stance a bit during Tuesday night's broadcast on SNY (more on that below).
And David Wright -- who will start at third base Saturday for the first time in over two years -- told SNY's Andy Martino on Tuesday that he would "love" to work in a front office capacity with the Mets in 2019.
"I'd love to stay involved," Wright said. "I love being around the game. I obviously love the organization. So I think I could provide value."
Back to Darling...
He was asked by Gary Cohen during Tuesday night's broadcast on SNY whether his interest in the Mets' GM gig was legitimate, and kind of laughed it off, suggesting he wasn't truly interested. Keith Hernandez then weighed in on his (non-existent) interest, chuckling at the fact that he wasn't even close to qualified. And Cohen had a similar response to Keith regarding his non-existent interest in the job.
So with Keith and Gare crossed off the list, who would be the better front office hire for the Mets between Darling and Wright?
