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.

There is thought among team officials that perhaps the Mets became too analytics driven in recent seasons under Sandy Alderson’s watch,
culminating in winning the National League pennant in 2015.
