NEW YORK (AP) - Former Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Josh Byrnes has met with the Mets ownership group in his bid to succeed Omar Minaya as New York’s GM.

Byrnes met Monday with controlling owner Fred Wilpon, team president Saul Katz and Jeff Wilpon, the owner’s son and the team’s chief operating officer.

Former Oakland Athletics president and San Diego Padres chief executive officer Sandy Alderson is to meet with the Wilpons and Katz on Tuesday.

Alderson and Byrnes are the finalists to replace Minaya, who was fired along with manager Jerry Manuel after the team’s second straight losing season. The pair met earlier for initial interviews with Jeff Wilpon and lower-level management.
