    I think he will come in and express some things that he wants to do, but I think for now the vision is Aldersons. Unless he say we need to get this guy over this guy or say he would not like a certain guy Sandy was targeting, but am sure they talked about that in the interview.

    This hire just feels right from both quantitative and qualitative standpoints. So Mets-like in the new age of the team.

    Porter hired Jason Parks, here’s hoping he brings him in as an Assistant GM. He used to to be the head prospect writer for Baseball Prospectus. Big Mets fans, or used to be. I used to see him at the Cyclone games.

    You have 3 more years of Lmfao Robinson, that material should write itself.

    -Peter Gammons

    In the last two days, I have gotten more than three dozen texts from baseball people who see Mets president Sandy Alderson and Porter as natural partners. “Knowing Jared all these years, Sandy is the perfect mentor for him,” says one former Red Sox colleague. “Sandy will shelter him from Cohen, who is so energetic and eager to make news,” says another. Adds a third, “Sandy Alderson defines honor, dignity, thought and measured enthusiasm. They are perfect for one another.”

    Porter is measured, he is thoughtful, he seems to know every player in either league, and virtually every executive knows him. “Jared is incredibly humble, he’s a listener, he connects with everyone, he’s someone everyone trusts,” says Cherington. “Sandy can go home at night or travel somewhere and know that Jared can handle a problem that comes up. From veteran scouts like the late Gary Hughes to the young analysts, he makes it clear he appreciates and respects them.”
