Finally! We have something by which to judge Terry Collins

“All I’ll say is we have higher expectations than we’ve had in the past.” – Sandy Alderson, February 2014 Saturday’s night loss made it mathematically impossible for the Mets to win 90 games. If you recall, back in February, Alderson allegedly told team executives that the Mets should challenge for that many wins this season. The remark was not meant for public consumption...

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...

Alderson On d’Arnaud To Left Field: No Chance, Never Discussed

August 30 Sandy Alderson put to rest for once and for all, that the front office had no conversations whatsoever about moving Travis d’Arnaud to left field. He told Mike Puma of the New York Post that not only was there no such conversation within the organization, but that there was no chance that it’s something that could happen in the future. “No, not really,” Alderson...

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...

Alderson Says Blockbuster Deal Possible, But Wouldn’t Bet On It

Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that it’s unlikely the Mets make a deal before the Trade Deadline – sort of. “If I had to make a guess, I would say nothing will happen,” Alderson said. “But you never know what’s going to transpire in the next three days or so. Clubs that may be having conversations elsewhere circle back based on what they think their options...

Sandy Alderson: Mets Unlikely To Make Any Deals

Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that it’s unlikely the Mets make a deal before the Trade Deadline. “To make a guess, I would say that nothing will happen,” the GM said. Of course, no run-up to the trade deadline would be the same if Sandy didn’t say something akin to this. The Mets have been shopping Bartolo Colon and Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported that...

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

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.

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...
