“Steve and Theo spoke,” a source familiar with the conversation told SNY. “They had a good conversation and both agreed that this was not the right opportunity.”
For weeks, our reporting has been that the mutual interest was overstated. Epstein was not at the top of the Mets list, and he wasn’t eager to jump from his current job at Major League Baseball.
