Big move for #Mets front office: Team hiring Allard Baird, #RedSox senior VP of player personnel, as VP of scouting and player development, sources tell The Athletic.

I really like the FO additions we've made so far. BUT.. let's see it bare some fruit. I was once in dreamland when we put together the Sandy/DePo/Ricciardi trio and... yeah.. that didn't work out as great as I thought it would.

is well respected but this Lol quite a blurb announcing Baird's firing in 06 ESPN"Plagued by weak drafts, unproductive trades and a general drift
throughout the organization, the Royals have established themselves
the past few seasons as one of the most unsuccessful franchises in
professional sports. #Mets

Organizations are realizing more and more that you need business people and baseball people working at the top. Not just one person doing both roles.

Baird is respected for his baseball side. BVW is the business guy. That's why I wanted him at top.

Baird is a very good scout and he’s the type of guy old baseball media dudes love but he’s probably not someone you want running player dev in 2019 given major modernization in that area

Allard Baird’s been a huge influence on others, up-and-comers. A loss for the Red Sox


Quote:
Baird came to the Sox in 2006. Jared Porter, now an assistant general manager with the Diamondbacks, was a baseball ops intern under Epstein in Boston in 2004. He stayed with the Sox for another 11 years.

During that ’04 internship, Porter formed a bond with a renowned baseball lifer, the late Bill Lajoie. Lajoie worked for the Sox for a time before going to the Pirates.

"He called me one time, he’s like, 'You’re working for Allard, right?'" Porter remembered. "'I don’t think you know how lucky you are. There aren’t many people in this game that really care and like to develop younger people.'"

Some execs will try to slow up-and-comers who can threaten their own status, Lajoie told Porter. But Baird is the opposite.

“I see it being more true: some people are people developers,” Porter said. “It’s a great quality.”

Good. One of the problems the Mets have had for years is their inability to create a system that transcends individual leaders.

The teams that are successful for years are the ones with an organizational philosophy. They develop coaches, analysts, and executives just like they develop players.

The Mets don't

Is he worthy of being a Baird man?
