Mets' next GM likely to come from outside

Assuming the Mets do reassign Omar Minaya -- and I'm told any contractual language stipulating he cannot be reassigned should not be an obstacle -- a replacement is expected to come from outside the organization.

For a while, the conventional wisdom had been that assistant GM John Ricco could ascend to Minaya's role. However, a source who has discussed the topic with those in the highest levels of the Mets' hierarchy said the preference is for Ricco to work under someone with significant experience. The source added that Wayne Krivsky, the former Cincinnati Reds GM who is under contract to the Mets for 2011, is not going to be an integral part of any 2011 front-office configuration.
