Despite Continued Interest From The Mets, David Stearns Remains With The Milwaukee Brewers

Nov 12, 2021

ASSOCIATED PRESS David Stearns remains gainfully employed by the Milwaukee Brewers but that hasn't kept his name out of the rumor mill this winter as the New York Mets' continue their search to rebuild their front office. Less than a month after Mets were denied permission to interview Milwaukee's president of baseball operations and Brewers general manager Matt Arnold withdrew his name from consideration, a report surfaced Wednesday from MLB's general managers meetings in Carlsbad, Calif. that the Mets were refocusing their efforts on pry Stearns back to his hometown next winter. During an interview session with Milwaukee reporters Thursday to announce the team's recently-hired hitting coaches, Stearns brushed off a question about the swirling rumors. "I'm gonna steer clear of that," Stearns said. "I think everyone, myself included, prefers keeping the attention on the players." According to a report first posted by The Athletic , the Mets are leaning toward hiring current Nationals assistant general manager Adam Cromie to serve as general manager and pursue Stearns a year from now, under the assumption that his current contract will expire. MORE FOR YOU Whether or not that's an accurate assumption is unknown. Details of Stearns' deal were not made public in January 2019, when he signed an extension that included a promotion from general manager to president of baseball operations. That deal is widely-believed to include a club option for 2023, which would keep him in Milwaukee for at least another season and in return, scuttling the Mets' apparent strategy. New York first tried to lure Stearns, who grew up rooting for the Mets and then worked for the team early in his career, last winter only to be denied permission for an interview by Brewers owner Mark Attanasio. The Mets eventually settled on Diamondbacks assistant general manager Jared Porter but he was fired after it was revealed that he'd sent unsolicited inappropriate text messages and pictures to a female reporter while working for the Chicago Cubs. Zack Scott followed but finished the season on administrative leave after he was charged with driving while intoxicated in September leading to the Mets seeking permission once again to talk to Stearns, who'd built a fourth consecutive postseason squad with the Brewers. "He’s a great executive; he’s outstanding,” Attanasio said during the Brewers' final home series of the season — which happened to come against the very same Mets. “He’s also under contract with us.” It’s easy to see why Attanasio has no interest in letting Stearns leave. The Brewers are 468-403 since Stearns took over for general manager Doug Melvin following the 2015 season. They’ve won two National League Central Division titles (2018, 2021) and have made the playoffs in each of the last four seasons thanks in large part to a number of shrewd moves made by Stearns, including the January 2018 trade for Christian Yelich and a deal this past May for shortstop Willy Adames. One thing missing from Stearns’ resume is a World Series appearance, something he seemed to allude to when asked about his future following the Brewers’ season-ending loss to Atlanta in the NL Division Series last month. “Consistent with how I’ve handled those questions in the past, I think I’ll shy away from any media or external speculation other than to say I’m happy here; my family is happy here,” Stearns said. “And we’ve got work to do here.” Follow me on  Twitter .
