The Mets completed the first round of interviews with GM candidates on Thursday when frontrunner Sandy Alderson toured Citi Field and continued his conversation with chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and acting GM John Ricco. Afterward, Wilpon e-mailed this letter to fans:

"As you may know, earlier today we completed the initial round of interviews with six talented candidates to become the new general manager of the New York Mets. Each was extremely impressive -- Allard Baird, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes, Sandy Alderson, Logan White and Dana Brown. All reiterated their desire and interest in pursuing this opportunity. We will be in direct communication with each as we narrow the candidate pool by early next week. We subsequently will invite the leading candidates back to meet with Fred [Wilpon], Saul [Katz] and me."
