Word broke Thursday morning that Murphy has yet to speak with Alderson and co. about extending his contract.

An alternate offseason for the 2015 Mets

We’ve been around Sandy Alderson long enough to know his general strengths and weaknesses. Essentially, he’s done a very good job of stockpiling minor league talent, whether that comes from trading, drafting or not giving away what he inherited. He’s done well enough in the “throwing things against the wall and see what sticks” department. He’s not done so hot in signing...

Sandy Alderson is very optimistic for 2015

6 Things We Learned From Sandy Alderson At Season Ticket Holders Event

Here’s a brief summary of what we learned from the Mets Season Ticket Holders event at Citi Field where Sandy Alderson, John Ricco, Paul DePodesta and J.P. Ricciardi fielded questions from the group.

Sandy Alderson ranks among greatest general managers of all-time

Sandy Alderson’s three pennants and one World Series championship, while a first-rate achievement, may not be quite enough to justify his ranking at number twelve. But Alderson’s place in history is enhanced by two considerations: he was the first modern GM to actively introduce analytics, though rudimentary by current standards, into a team’s decision making, and he was the...

New York Mets: the Ian Desmond trade edition

Acquiring a shortstop for the 2015 season has been an ongoing issue for the New York Mets this offseason. General manager Sandy Alderson has kept the team on a shoestring budget for some time, which for NY Sports fans, is extremely frustrating because the Mets could be a threat for the post season with the addition of a competitive shortstop. Right now Wilmer Flores looks to be...
