Logan White to stay with Dodgers as Mets’ general manager search hits second phase

Leave a comment

Logan White presumably didn’t make the cut as the Mets trimmed their list of general manager candidates following the first round of interviews, because Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he “will not be the Mets’ general manager and will remain with the Dodgers.”

Of course, with just about everyone assuming that Sandy Alderson will get the job it’s possible he’s the only candidate who actually made the second phase after the Mets reportedly interviewed six potential GMs.

Alderson completed the second half of his interview yesterday, touring Citi Field with chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and assistant general manager John Ricco. Depending on who you believe, Alderson is somewhere between a “heavy favorite” and “lock” to wind up with the job.

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
