New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon and COO Jeff Wilpon disagree on how the team should approach hiring Sandy Alderson's replacement as the leader of the front office.

The elder Wilpon favors hiring an experienced baseball person with roots in scouting and player development, while the younger Wilpon would prefer a analytics-savvy general manager, according to sources.

Because of this disconnect, the Mets have made separate lists of candidates.

An organizational source indicated the final call will almost certainly belong to Fred Wilpon alone.
