The New York Times has an update on the Mets' general manager search. In short, Sandy Alderson is headed back to Citi Field to interview with the Mets brass, but it's not a "second interview," instead, it's to complete the first interview. And then maybe he'll have a second interview.

Anyway, according to the article, the "second interview" will be a meeting with owner Fred Wilpon and team president Saul Katz. There's no word on who will get those golden tickets and if there's a "third interview" with Mr. Met and Keith Hernandez's mustache after that before heading to the speed round.

The Times adds the Mets have gotten permission to speak to Dana Brown, a special assistant to Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos. BRown will meet Wednesday with chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and assistant GM John Ricco.

Alderson is considered by most as the front-runner for the job. In addition to Brown and Alderson, Logan White, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes and Allard Baird have interviewed for the gig.
