Steve Cohen sets high expectations when he said he would be sorry if the Mets didn’t win a World Series title in the next three to five years.
And the new owner has made it known that he wants a front office that is ready to face this challenge.
“Who cares if we don’t set high goals,” Cohen said he wrote on Twitter in response to a SNY report that candidates for general manager were removed from their aggressive aims.
Last week, Mets president Sandy Alderson said the team was no more looking to hire a baseball operations president for the moment. Instead, the organization is “exclusively” focused on hiring a general manager.
Alderson said about six candidates have been interviewed for the GM role so far. One of these candidates, former pitcher Chris Young, it is taken into consideration for work Monday, Joel Sherman of The Post said.
Young, who has three children and lives in Dallas, has retired for family reasons.
