Sources: Mets hiring David Stearns as president of baseball operations

The New York Mets are hiring David Stearns as their president of baseball operations, sources told ESPN on Tuesday, tabbing the architect of multiple division titles in Milwaukee to help deliver the first World Series championship to Queens in nearly four decades.

Stearns, 38, has long been rumored to take over the Mets after stepping down as Brewers president after the 2022 season and will officially begin in early October, after the regular season ends, sources told ESPN.

A New York native who grew up a Mets fan, Stearns was denied permission by the Brewers to talk about the Mets’ top baseball operations job after the 2021 season.

This could make for an interesting offseason.

NY Post, October 9, 2023

NEW YORK - Only minutes after sitting down at his new desk at Mets headquarters on his first day of work, newly-minted Mets President of Baseball Operations David Stearns was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Queens with what appeared to be an Achilles injury. The extent of his injury was unclear, and the timetable for his return is unknown, according to front office staff with knowledge of the situation.

Howie is sitting at home confused. On the one hand, he’s gratified to see he had one more unmedicated tent-pitching in his shorts, on the other is the realization that it came from reading about a man in his 30s.

Darn shame for the Mets that Chris Getz was already spoken for.

On queue, stories emerging that Buck has been thinking about stepping down from managing anyhow.
