Mets GM Search: Sandy Alderson, Josh Byrnes Complete Second Interviews

The Mets have completed their second-round interviews with GM candidates Sandy Alderson and Josh Byrnes. Jeff Wilpon has released a statement:

"We will have no further comment on the process until we are ready to announce our new General Manager."

Speculation this week has generally pegged Alderson as the front-runner, and Andy Martino of the Daily News has corroborating sources:

What I'm hearing today [from] multiple sources jives [sic] with what most [are] hearing: Likely Alderson, Friday very possible for official announcement.

Chalk the clumsy sentence up to the awkward mechanics of using Twitter to broadcast coherent thoughts, but the bottom line appears to be this: Josh Byrnes is probably a long shot to land the Mets GM position, which means that Sandy Alderson will very likely be the next GM. None of this is cast in stone and there have surely been greater upsets in recent memory, but if those who follow the Mets as closely (both literally and figuratively) as anyone are to be believed, the announcement of Alderson's hiring could come as soon as the next World Series off day.
