Mets GM and the questions around what he will do.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one thinking about some of these point. Matter of fact there are some points that I didn’t even consider about the Mets hiring Brodie.
From the NY Post
"Ignorance is bliss but feigning ignorance relies on those stupid enough to believe it. Thus, leave it to the Mets, with MLB’s approval, to have this week enacted the preposterous.

They hired as their general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, 17 years a players’ agent, who now vows to "recuse himself" -- remove himself -- from all dealings concerning recent clients Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.

In other words the Mets have hired a GM who, when it most counts, vows not to get involved.

Exactly how is that going to work? When, for example, deGrom’s future is discussed and determined, Van Wagenen will leave the room or, to be extra cautious, leave the country? Or will that determination be a quick process completed while the new GM, with no say whatsoever, is out to lunch?"

I really don’t get how the MLB is allowing this. How is Brodie not going to be involved with deGrom or Syndergaard? When it’s time to make a trade of one of his former clients does he step back from that too?
