    As we work to figure out what the Mets organization will look like if Steve Cohen is approved as owner and names Sandy Alderson team president, league sources have identified three names who will likely be considered for a role with the team: Nationals assistant hitting coach Pat Roessler, Oakland assistant general manager Billy Owens, and Tampa Bay special assistant Bobby Heck.

    Roessler served as Metsí assistant hitting coach from 2015-17 under Kevin Long. He was hitting coach in 2018, and remains highly respected by many in the organization. He could be under consideration for a prominent coaching role next season.



    Heck and Owens are highly respected executives who could play a role in a revamped front office. As SNY previously reported, Alderson could hire one or two top baseball operations executives to report to him.

    All of this is contingent on Cohenís approval by other owners. Despite some dissent behind the scenes, league sources expect the sale to ultimately go through. That would leave Alderson in charge of baseball operations by November at the latest.

    Alderson could not be reached for comment.

    I would try to get DarNo back.
    Glad I got that off my chest.

    Oh, BVW sucks.

    Like anyone thought díArnaud was going to do this here lol. Once we signed Ramos, he was a goner.

    No one did but its a nice narrative with the benefit of hindsight. Its not like D'Arnaud had 5 years to figure it out as a Met or anything.

    I blame the Mets for just releasing him.
    To throw salt in the wound the Mets traded a prospect for Billy Hamilton.

    Oh by the way Wilson Ramos sucks.

    Releasing TDA was reportedly a Jeff Wilpon move and yeah both teams did. I dont think the Rays gave up on Travis. They just couldn't afford him. Its to their detriment because he probably would have pushed them to the ALCS already given how well he's played in Atlanta.

    They clearly re-tooled his swing in Tampa though. Its led to him having great success. Good on Atlanta for signing him. Alex Anthopoulos is a good GM and he inherited a very good team with a great farm system.

    Played for TB after being released by the Dodgers for 1 game. TB couldn't afford him, they were paying pennies on the dollar.

    Signed as a FA by the Braves.

    They apparently couldn't because they chose not to re-sign him is my point.
