Daniels: I did not ask Mets to wait

SAN FRANCISCO -- Texas general manager Jon Daniels is a Queens native and a hot commodity these days, but says he did not ask the Mets to delay plans to hire a GM until after the World Series so that he would be free to take the job.

"Complete bull," Daniels, 33, told CBSSports.com before Game 1 of the World Series here Wednesday regarding one published report that he was in contact with the Mets and asked them to wait on him. "That really pissed me off."

Daniels, the architect of the Rangers' first-ever World Series team, called the report "completely inaccurate."

"All I'm thinking about is the Rangers and the World Series. I'm in a great spot," he said.

The Mets appear set to hire Sandy Alderson as their GM, likely on Friday.

Actually, what he said was "hold on...let me run the Mets. I built the Rangers into a World Series champion and I can do the same for the Mets"....Wilpon said "thanks dude!...but the Rangers aren't champions yet. See you later.....not!"

The Mets should wait until May so I can finish my Bachelors degree. Then they can hire me to build them a dynasty even greater than that joke of a cross-town team the Yankees who need to buy players and pay off umpires to win.
