​On Friday, the ​New York Mets hired former ​Miami Marlins assistant GM Mike Wickham as an advanced scout and their replay coordinator, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred.


What do fans think of this move?

​​This is another front office hire by the new NY regime. In previous stops, Wickham spent time as an assistant director and director of minor league operations with the San Diego Padres. From there, he was the director of baseball operations with the Marlins.

Wickham is probably better known for being married to MLB Network host Heidi Watney than his work in Major League Baseball. 


This is a small move by the Mets, but new GM Brodie Van Wagenen continues to strengthen his front office, which should be encouraging to fans.
