Source: Mets No Longers Considering Theo Epstein

One of the Mets’ dream-list candidates for their top baseball operations job is no longer a consideration.

Owner Steve Cohen spoke this week to Theo Epstein, according to a person with knowledge of the discussions, and the sides agreed that it was not the right opportunity for Epstein to pursue. The conversation was “cordial,” according to the same source.

Epstein was the chief architect of both the 2004 Red Sox and 2016 Cubs, two teams that snapped significant championship droughts under his watch. Some hope existed in New York that Epstein, who is currently serving as a consultant in Major League Baseball’s front office, could potentially do the same for a Mets team that has not won it all since 1986.

However, Epstein is now out of the picture.

And this is why the Mets will continue to wallow in mediocrity.

I bet Cohen wants to pull strings, while Epstein most likely wants full autonomy. Theo is most likely dodging a bullet.
