Who should the Mets hire as their next general manager?

As the list of candidates who have turned down the Mets’ front office jobs continues to grow, the names associated with the ongoing interview process becomes increasingly more speculative.

One name that hasn’t come up often but should be an easy target at this point in the process should be Jason McLeod.

Who is Jason McLeod?

McLeod was part of Theo Epstein’s inner circle for two decades, with a brief period in San Diego where he worked with Jed Hoyer… who happens to have been Epstein’s protégé.

He actually started working with Epstein in the 1990s while they were both in the Padres organization.
