Gov. Chris Christie would love to be Mets GM.

NEW YORK -- If Sandy Alderson ends up outta here, Gov. Chris Christie would love to take over as GM.

"I would love to be general manager of the Mets," Christie told WFAN, per the Star-Ledger. "If Sandy would put his crap in boxes and get out of there now, I'd be happy to go there now."

Christie, a big Mets fan, visited the Mets complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., during spring training in March while on vacation.

He indicated he has been to four Mets games this season.

"I texted my son after they lost one of the games this week: 'It is impossible to watch,'" Christie reportedly said. "It is impossible to watch. Just when you care about them as much as I do, it's hard to watch sometimes."
