The Milwaukee Brewers made shocking headlines on Thursday when David Stearns announced he was stepping down as the team's president of baseball operations. This immediately kicked up rumors about his potential next stop, with the New York Mets jumping to the top of the line.

New York is currently without a team president after Sandy Alderson stepped down, and owner Steve Cohen is unafraid to spend his way to championship aspirations.

Unfortunately, Stearns quickly shut down this possibility.

In a press conference announcing his resignation from the Brewers staff, Stearns said "I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to be here in Milwaukee." It's reported he plans to remain with the Brewers in an advisory role.

Stearns' contract runs until 2023, so there's still some belief this is simply a tactic to avoid any accusations of tampering. But, if we take Stearns at his word, he sounds content to stick around in Milwaukee.

One of the most lauded front office executives in baseball, Stearns helped revamp the Brewers franchise when he joined in 2015. Milwaukee just ended a four-year playoff run and have been at least 10 games over .500 (outside of the pandemic season) in every year since 2016.
