Jared Porter is one of the best executives the New York Mets could have gotten. The question is can he mesh with Sandy Alderson to bring a championship back to Queens?

The New York Mets have finally hired a General Manager. After weeks of searching for the top front office executive to run the New York Mets franchise, they have found someone brave enough to take on Steve Cohen’s championship goal of winning a World Series in three to five years.

There was a potential looming concern that baseball executives were scared away from the Mets job because of Steve Cohen’s championship goal as well as the presence of Sandy Alderson and his role as the Mets Team President.

Even though Sandy Alderson is a highly respected baseball executive and a future Hall of Famer there is something to be said about his presence in the Mets

ranks being a deterrent. Any executive that comes to the Mets from another team would want the Mets to be his team, not Sandy’s and that is completely understandable.

Jared Porter apparently did not shy away from the idea of having Sandy Alderson as part of the Mets front office since he is taking the job and will be the new Mets GM going forward.

Even though it seems that Porter does not see Alderson as a threat the question remains, how will they mesh and work together to bring a championship back to Queens like Steve Cohen wants.
