Responding to Sandy Alderson’s praise of Terry Collins

“I don’t frankly think the last 12 games have a lot to do with evaluating Terry,” Alderson said before his team’s 151st game of the season. “I think we’ve played well to this point and through the first half of September, even the latter part of August. I think the team has responded pretty well.” snip “I think Terry’s done a fine job this season,” Alderson said...

Collins, Alderson’s Status To Be Determined At Seasons End, Expected To Return

According to Andy Martino, the Mets are expected to retain both General Manager Sandy Alderson and Manager Terry Collins, but will make an official announcement at the end of the year. Alderson seems eager to return. “We still have some things to accomplish, and I would like to be here when we do” (Martino, NYDN). Sandy Alderson told The Daily News that “What we will do is...

Mets Owners Are Almost Out Of Miracles

General Manager Sandy Alderson recently sat with reports and discussed offseason spending plans heading into 2015. The conclusion? The GM does not predict a generous lift in payroll for next season. The free agent class is not as strong as it’s been in recent history and the Mets can ill-afford to take up more space on the payroll with ineffective longterm contracts. However, in...

The New York Mets Need Not Move in the Outfield Walls Again

The New York Mets are considering changing the dimensions of their spacious ballpark once again this offseason. The alterations are intended to “(make) Citi Field as fan-friendly and as exciting as we can make it,” according to Sandy Alderson. Citi Field is not the issue, and any attempt to further alter the ballpark will come off as stark desperation for a team set to conclude...

Alderson Admits Limited Spending This Offseason, Considering Bringing In Fences

Howie Kussoy of the New York Post is reporting that while speaking to a group of veterans at the Manhattan V.A, Hospital, Sandy Alderson admitted that the team would not be able to do anything significant in free agency this offseason and that unless help doesn’t come via a trade, it will need to come from within the organization.

Alderson Weighs In On Offseason Strategy, Internal Options vs Free Agency

Is Matt den Dekker 2015′s Left Fielder? It’s rather funny that in my last post this morning, I speculated that the Mets lacked the financial resources and flexibility to address the left field and shortstop holes via free agency, and then I came across this quote: On whether adding a shortstop and another bat in the outfield will be priorities for the big-league club in the off...

How much money would it take to fix the Mets?

If you listen to people around the baseball world there is a general consensus.  The Mets could be contenders in 2015 and all it will take is money.  Sure, Sandy Alderson could get creative.  He could trade some of the young talent and find ways of improving the anemic offense without spending money, but why should he?  Why not keep hold of Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Rafael...

Ten questions they could have asked Sandy Alderson on SNY

Friday night Sandy Alderson made an appearance in the SNY booth and chatted with the broadcasters. Alderson is a master of talking a lot without really saying anything and has never been above bending the truth to serve his immediate purposes. Then factor in that the broadcasters aren’t really allowed 100% freedom in asking questions and you end up with a half an inning talking...

New York Mets trade rumors: will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger?

With the trade deadline right around the corner, trade speculation and rumors are reaching their peak. It is no different with the New York Mets. I have thrown out some names of players who could be traded over the last few weeks. The only question remaining is will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger. Over his time with the Mets, Alderson has proven to be very deliberate in his actions...

Sandy Alderson’s call to action is going unanswered

“I think the last 10 games were important because they make the next 10 games relevant to what happens at the trade deadline. We’ll see what happens over the next 10 days or so. But certainly the last 10 games have to make us a little more optimistic.” That’s what Sandy Alderson said to the New York Post just before the second half of the 2014 season started. It was a challenge...
