Bud Selig urged Sandy Alderson to be Mets General Manager


According to the Peter Botte of the NY Daily News,  Sandy Alderson had said Monday that he's had no second thoughts about taking the Mets GM job in the fall.

But he conceded Tuesday night that without baseball commissioner Bud Selig's urging, he probably wouldn't have even applied for the position or left his previous job with MLB cleaning up its Dominican operation.

"Probably not, and the reason was I was already working," Alderson said during an appearance to benefit the Fans for the Cure prostate cancer charity in Manhattan. "Absent (Selig) asking to go ahead and pursue this, and to some degree urging me to pursue it, I'd still be in Santo Domingo studying Spanish."
