I'm all for out of the box thinking, but this is perhaps more out of the box than any of us is used to.
The New York Mets hired Brodie Van Wagenen as their new General Manager. Van Wagenen, besides having one of the best names in baseball, is an agent with no front office experience. Even more interestingly, he has been the agent for Yoenis Cespedes, Jacob DeGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and several other Mets players. To avoid a conflict of interests, he has had to severa all ties to his agency, CAA. But he still knows what the players are thinking, and now he is in position to use that knowledge against them.
I can see potential conflicts here. What do you think of this move?
