Friday introduction for Alderson?

The Mets did not commit to a press conference Friday, but it is expected the new general manager may be introduced that day, since it's an off-day between Games 2 and 3 of the World Series.

Sandy Alderson completed the interview process Tuesday at Citi Field when he met with principal owner Fred Wilpon, president Saul Katz and chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon. Alderson is widely expected throughout baseball to be the hire. The other finalist, former Arizona Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes, had his final-round interview Monday.

"We will have no further comment on the process until we are ready to announce our new general manager," Jeff Wilpon said in a statement.
