Where Mets may turn next as Sandy Alderson’s role in search comes into question

Phase 2 of the Mets’ search is underway, with names such as Josh Byrnes (Dodgers), Brandon Gomes (Dodgers), Scott Harris (Giants), Matt Arnold (Brewers) and Peter Bendix (Rays) potentially on the radar, according to sources. But the odds of the big splash team owner Steve Cohen has sought have substantially subsided.

“The Mets are in a tough spot, because I don’t think fans are going to buy into them bringing in another unknown,” a rival executive said Tuesday. “I see some of those names that are mentioned, and nothing against them, but a lot of them are just new guys and you hire new guys, you are going to go through the same thing again.”

Among the questions buzzing through the industry is whether Sandy Alderson is empowered to hire or even identify candidates to become the next leader of the Mets front office or if Cohen has essentially pushed aside his team president and is leading the search.

Hiring Brodie Van Wegenan over Chaim Bloom was ... not a good idea.

Is there any reason that Sandy should have a role in making decisions about anything important about the Mets?
