Which pitchers has Sandy Alderson actually drafted or signed?

What do Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz all have in common? Besides the fact that they are all on the Mets, none of them have actually been drafted by Sandy Alderson. Matz was drafted by Omar Minaya in one of the deepest left-handed starting pitching drafts ever (2009), Harvey and deGrom were part of the last draft class by Minaya ...

You’ve Met The Citizens, Now Meet The Mayors Of Panic City

On Sunday, general manager Sandy Alderson walked by the media at Citi Field after the Mets completed a sweep of the Reds and said to reporters: “Here they come, the citizens of Panic City.” (Adam Rubin, ESPN NY) Despite the high of sweeping the lowly Reds, Rubin thinks it may be premature for Sandy to start crowing. “Perhaps it is not time to gloat just yet about the Mets’...

Alderson Characterizes Trade Market As Thin, But Willing To Overpay

During this afternoon’s press conference at Citi Field, Sandy Alderson said he continues to look externally to find some help for the offense. “I would characterize us as somewhat aggressive. I’m prepared to overpay but there has to be something to overpay for.” It sounds like the team has only enough resources to add one player, so they want to be sure it’s someone that...

New York Mets: Sandy Alderson and his New York mess

Recent road games for the New York Mets have been uneventful for the metropolitan franchise. Within the last seven road outings this month, the Mets trudged to a sloppy 0-7 record as they fell to second place in the National League East, behind the Washington Nationals. At the moment, a 36-37 record is not something to be worried about, but as the team heads into July with match...

Collins Must Manage From His Gut Even If Alderson Doesn’t Like It

All the goodwill the Mets fostered during their 11-game winning streak is gone, vanished like a possible Jacob deGrom victory because of a faulty bullpen and no hitting. It faded along with the Mets’ eight-game lead over the Nationals, which is now a 3.5-game deficit. Sure, the Mets could regroup but what are their chances, but what are the odds? COLLINS: Where’s that smile...

An Open Letter To Sandy Alderson

Dear Mr. Alderson, We – the worldwide group of Mets fans – have gone through a lot. After two epic collapses in 2007 and 2008, we have patiently endured a slow and gradual rebuild that has essentially lasted six years. First the “tear down” of “Los Mets” from 2009 through 2011. Then from 2012 through 2014 a gradual rebuild, focused on reducing payroll, adding young talent...

Why Doesn’t Sandy Alderson Do Something Already?

Oftentimes I feel as though we have some of the most irrational, bipolar, manic-depressive, flip-flopping fans and writers I’ve ever seen. Win three games, order the champagne and playoff tickets. Lose three games, open the windows and get out on your ledges. In a matter of 13 days I saw one site go from “Do Something Mets” to “Sandy’s In All-Out, Full-On, Hustle Mode”...

Sandy Alderson and the winds of change

Many fans here at Mets360 and in the larger media sphere have blamed General Manager Sandy Alderson for being too slow in helping the Mets turn around as an organization. He hasn’t brought guys up quick enough, he hasn’t made a dynamite trade to impact the team, he hasn’t, he hasn’t, he hasn’t. It’s a long list, and I don’t really have the time or the patience to go...

A plea for Sandy Alderson to bring in reinforcements

Two weeks ago this writer warned about the importance of June. So far, the Mets are 4 and 6 this month.  This follows up a weak May in which the team went a pedestrian 13 and 15. In fact, since their remarkable 11-game win streak in April, the Mets are a paltry 19 and 26.  If not for the fact that the division favorite Nationals have also been slumping amid injuries, the Mets might...

Preller, Alderson discuss Padres, Mets' different approaches to building teams

With the Mets playing the Padres this week in San Diego, former Padres president and current Mets general manager Sandy Alderson compared the approaches to building a team of his current and former club. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, Alderson said:"We definitely are taking two different approaches. Their approach is unique for this market. And our approach is different...
