SANDY ALDERSON RUMORS

Some unsolicited advice for Sandy Alderson to use in 2014

One thing that seems apparent to me is that things get better for the Mets when the GM acts. He traded Ike Davis and first base got better. He got rid of Kyle Farnsworth, John Lannan, Scott Rice and Jose Valverde and the bullpen got better. And perhaps now our long outfield nightmare can improve with Bobby Abreu and Chris Young being recently shown the door. With the possible...

A Case For Keeping Sandy Alderson As Mets GM

Sandy Alderson is in the final season of his original four-year deal that expires in October, but the team has an option on Alderson’s contract for 2015. It was reported earlier in the season that the option was not picked up and that the owners will make a decision sometime near or after the season. Alderson has yet to produce a winning record, but that’s not entirely the best...

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 defends inaction at the deadline

“While we were active in conversations—although not super active—we didn’t make any deals, I think going in we didn’t intend to be sellers and we didn’t intend to be buyers necessarily. We were looking at the market and what it would dictate. We set a price on some of our players, and under the circumstances they weren’t met. We’re happy with the team that we have...

Opinion: Mets Should Extend Sandy Alderson

Sandy Alderson is in the final season of his original four-year deal but the team has an option on Alderson’s contract for 2015. It was reported earlier in the season that the option was not picked up and that the owners will make a decision sometime near or after the season. Alderson has yet to produce a winning record, but that’s not entirely the best way to view his tenure...

The Mets Season Rests on Weekend Series Against San Francisco

The New York Mets continued a seven-year trend of not supplementing their major league roster at the MLB trade deadline yesterday. Though speculation swirled early of the Washington Nationals’ interest in 2B Daniel Murphy and of Sandy Alderson’s quest to deal 41-year-old SP Bartolo Colon, Alderson ultimately concluded, “There were some proposals we made that were not accepted...

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?

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...
