Breaking: Brewers deny Mets request to interview David Stearns

Milwaukee's President of Baseball Ops Isn't Going Anywhere

In a move that surprised absolutely no one, the Brewers have officially denied the Mets from interviewing David Stearns. After another incredibly successful season by the Milwaukee Brewers under President of Baseball Operations David Stearns, he was the top target for many teams rebuilding their front-office.

The most vocal of those teams were the New York Mets. They were so desperate for Stearns that they even considered trading one of their top prospects for Milwaukee’s most coveted asset. Of course, the Brewers view Stearns as untouchable. He turned this franchise around in less than a decade and has set the team up for sustained success over the next decade.

Did the Mets Have a Shot?

As a native of Manhattan, New York, the Mets felt as though they had a good shot at swiping Stearns from Milwaukee for the right price. However, the Brewers weren’t so willing to let their prodigy executive walk before his contract with Milwaukee is over.

Stearns was one of three heavyweight candidates the Mets were going after to become their President of Baseball Operations, alongside Theo Epstein and Billy Beane. With Epstein denying the role, and Beane not showing any public interest, it’s unclear what the Mets will do going forward.

Brewers fans should be encouraged by both the news that Stearns isn’t leaving and also the fact that teams view David as being equally as talented as some of the most successful front-office executives in recent memory. Epstein has broken two World Series droughts as GM of the Red Sox in 2004 and the Cubs in 2016. Billy Beane has been around the A’s front office since the early 1990s and has fielded extremely talented teams on a tight payroll. To know that Stearns is viewed as equally, if not more, talented as those front office legends should excite Brewers fans for the future.

What’s Next for Stearns?

With one year left on his contract, Stearns could eventually leave Milwaukee and join the Mets next offseason, but Brewers owner Mark Attanasio has made it clear that he will do anything in his power to keep David around for the foreseeable future.
