New owner of the New York Mets Steve Cohen has hired Sandy Alderson as team president, this is of course pending on ownership approval of Cohen by MLB owners.
Alderson, the Mets’ GM from 2010-2018, will take head of both baseball and business operations under the new regime.
Alderson will be in charge if Cohen gains MLB approval as expected and could be in charge of hiring a brand new general manager.
“If I am fortunate enough to be approved by Major League Baseball as the next owner of this iconic franchise, Sandy Alderson will become president of the New York Mets and will oversee all Mets baseball and business operations.”
“Sandy is an accomplished and respected baseball executive who shares my philosophy of building an organization and a team the right way. I am excited to have Sandy in a key leadership role with the Mets if my purchase of the team is approved. Let’s Go Mets!”
