Various reports say that the Mets have added Al Avila to the list of GM candidates.
I’m not going to disagree with this statement on MSNBC’s website:
“Call me cynical, but this sure feels like the Mets simply fulfilling their obligation to consider a minority candidate before hiring who they really want.”
I too am cynical, so I’m going to hope Al blows the doors off the place, gets the job and leads the Mets to 10 straight pennants.
Mr. Avila is the assistant GM of the Tigers. I would hate to think the Mets would bring him in just to waste his time and get his hopes up high.
I’m supporting Avila/Mazzilli ’11
