Dave Littlefield latest candidate to interview for Mets’ GM role

The Mets have interviewed Tigers’ vice president of player development Dave Littlefield for their open GM role, SNY’s Andy Martino confirmed on Wednesday.

New Yorkers unfamiliar with the peculiarities of Littlefield’s disastrous time in charge of the Pirates may at least recall his official scouting assessment of the height of Derek Jeter’s butt.

Everyone gets intrusive thoughts from time to time (e.g. “I wonder how far I could throw that baby), but it’s almost never a good idea to act on them.

David Wright to suit up for Mets one last time

Fighting back tears at an emotional news conference Thursday, Wright announced he will return from a 2 1/2-year absence to start at third base on Sept. 29. He does not expect to play again after this month.

I bet he’ll get a pretty good ovation, and he deserves it.

Cardinals executive on radar in Mets’ GM search

In the nascent stages of the Mets’ general manager search, Gary LaRocque’s name is among those receiving consideration.
[...]
Multiple individuals connected to the team have indicated Mets patriarch Fred Wilpon, 81, is unlikely to hand the organization’s reins to a young, purely analytics-driven GM with whom he would perhaps have difficulty connecting. The growing belief is Wilpon will look toward a more traditional baseball person.
[...]
There is thought among team officials that perhaps the Mets became too analytics driven in recent seasons under Sandy Alderson’s watch, and a veteran leader with a pure baseball background would help shift the organization toward the center.
