You may remember a few days ago I posted about Adam Rubin who was told by a source that Mets may not sign another outfielder. (see below)
Today, Rubin gets it straight from Mets GM Sandy Alderson who told him:
It’s conceivable we’ll go with what we have, but we’re still looking. I wouldn’t say that we’re satisfied with what we have. But if we don’t find what we think is a meaningful upgrade, then it’s possible we’ll go with what we have.
I still think there are some players out there, including Scott Hairston, who might be available as free agents. A trade is always a possibility, but I wouldn’t predict that. Other than that, I can’t speculate what will happen. We’re not unhappy with the position we’re in right now, which is to say: still looking, with viable possibilities remaining.
Alderson also admitted to Adam Rubin that the team is not in a position to trade prospects for an outfielder like Justin Upton.
