According to sources with inside knowledge of the New York Mets, the team’s front office is involved with making decisions in-game. The news comes as a major shock, since this is not the form for baseball by any means.
Current GM Brodie van Wagenen, in his first season with the club, has denied that he has been doing such, but he did state that he was keeping an eye on medical reports and the like. This is such a strange, perplexing situation that it’s easy to believe this is one of the problems for them. Meanwhile, their crosstown rival Yankees had a player hit a home run in a 27th consecutive game, tying that record in a 10-8 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
