Rumors: Brewers GM Arnold Eyed for Team President Position

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the New York Mets are said to be pondering Milwaukee Brewers general manager Matt Arnold for their president of baseball operations position.

The New York Mets might have elongated an offer to Arnold, Puma claimed via best Australian online casino.

Matt Arnold has been with the Milwaukee Brewers since 2015 fall when he was employed as the side’s vice president and assistant general manager. He became the team’s 10th general manager in the history of Milwaukee back in November 2020.

Before linking up with the Brewers, the 42-year-old spent 9 years with the Tampa Bay Rays and helped with player signings along with evaluations, and with contract talks. He has also worked in various capacities for the Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds, and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Initially, the Mets had their attention set on Milwaukee Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns but were not permitted to negotiate any deal with him, Joel Sherman of the New York Post claimed last week.

Billy Beane - Oakland Athletics executive vice president of baseball operations, former Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs executive Theo Epstein and San Francisco Giants GM Scott Harris were at first being considered for the role, as per Puma. Epstein and Beane were not keen on the job, while Harris recently pulled out himself from the job consideration.

Owner of the Mets Franchise Steve Cohen could make an internal acquisition if Arnold turned down the job, Puma further stated, and Tommy Tanous - assistant general manager Ian Levin and vice president of amateur/international scouting are being considered for the opening.

It has been a long search for the franchise. They were unable to engage a president of baseball operations in the previous winter and signed Jared Porter as general manager with the purpose that he could one day become president.

However, Jared Porter was sacked just weeks following his engagement, after it was confirmed he took part in an inappropriate act in 2016, which involved sending explicit and unsolicited texts and photos to a female reporter.

Zack Scott, the Assistant general manager was then elevated to acting general manager position and seen as a likely candidate to replace Jared Porter before an August DWI charge placed Porter’s status with the club into question.

The Mets ended the 2021 campaign with a heartbreaking 77-85 record. While major shake-ups are coming in the club hierarchy, the team is also in search of a new manager after sacking Luis Rojas and could make many key changes on the field of play before the 2022 campaign starts, with online casinos preparing odds ahead.

Meanwhile, The Mets have confirmed they never received the go-ahead to negotiate with David Stearns- Brewer's president of baseball operations, but they could be getting David’s, right-hand man.

Matt Arnold, the Brewers GM under David Stearns, has talked to officials of Mets, as per industry sources, as they continue in their search to fill their vacant president of baseball operations role. The reliable source added it’s likely a bid has already been made for the 42-year-old Matt Arnold, whose past experience includes working in the Rays front office.
