Former Nationals assistant GM Adam Cromie 'in the mix' to be Mets next GM

The list of candidates to opt out of the chance to be the next general manager of the New York Mets seems to be growing at a rapid rate. Despite that, the team is reportedly making some progress in its search.

According to a follow-up Tweet from Janes, Cromie has been working as a lawyer in the Pittsburgh area since he left the Nationals front office in 2017. Despite being "out of baseball" since that time, he hasn't "ever totally dropped off the radar." Janes added that Mets president Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that there are still "several" candidates under consideration for the gig, but he wouldn't mention an exact timeline as to when the vacancy would be filled.

The Mets are looking to fill their general manager position after acting GM Zack Scott was fired last week, two months after being charged with DWI. Scott was named acting GM in January after Jared Porter was fired following an ESPN report that the former GM sent explicit text messages to a female reporter while with the Chicago Cubs in 2016.

The Mets finished the 2021 season in third place in the NL East at 77-85, failing to make the postseason for the fifth straight season.
