Mets\' Front Office Has Dictated In-Game Moves 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:59 am

The New York Mets\' front office has dictated at least some pitching moves during games this season, according to multiple sources.

The New York Post first reported the story. A specific incident occurred on June 1 when Jacob deGrom was removed from a game while dealing with a hip cramp.

Front offices are usually involved in the planning of lineups and possible pitching matchups, but most managers have the autonomy to make moves through the course of each game.

I don't see why anybody cares about this. I'm sure it happens all the time.

People are also whining about him making moves from home. This is 2019 and we live in a digital world. A GM can be just as effective from home as he would be from the arena as long as he is informed and in contact with the rest of management.
