Kristie Ackert of the Daily News reports that Sandy Alderson has not made any offers to players or teams. “We met with some clubs, we met with some agents, we laid some groundwork,” Alderson said before leaving. “We had some phone calls, because some agents didn’t attend these meetings.We made progress.” “No,” Alderson said about having offers out on the table. There’s a post on MetsBlog that the Mets spoke to the Orioles about Nick Markakis. There’s nothing there. A beat writer for the O’s said it was the first he heard about it when I emailed him this morning. Is Markakis available? Of course he is… Markakis has $17 million dollars owed to him in 2014… He’s also in steep decline and is coming off a negative WAR season… He is as available as Jason Bay was during his last two years with the Mets. Players with horrific contracts are always available. The Mets spoke with Orioles… Guess what? The Mets spoke with every single team in the last 72 hours. This is what they do at the GM Meetings.
