​The ​New York Mets and ​San Francisco Giants have vacant general roles in their respective front offices. And while nothing was set in stone for him to interview for either job, ​former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington has withdrawn in his name from consideration, according to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal.

​​Cherington wants to be GM again, but he's happy with his current role with the Toronto Blue Jays as the Vice President of Baseball Operations. While the Mets and Giants should consider tearing it down, they aren't -- not yet, anyway -- and Cherington wants to build an organization from the ground up.

Cherington was​ linked to the Mets during the regular season once it became clear they were going to have to find someone to replace Sandy Alderson, who stepped aside to undergo another round of cancer treatment.


Of course, if he wants to build from the ground up, will he opt to throw his hat in the ring with the Baltimore Orioles, who just fired manager ​Buck Showalter and GM ​Dan Duquette? Stay tuned.
