We Will Know Mets’ True Feelings About Flores On Tuesday

It is a measure of how current GM Sandy Alderson – and the Mets’ brass in previous years – mislead fans that some of us are skeptical of the explanation given for the recent benching of shortstop Wilmer Flores.

Amed Rosairo, others, struggling with aggressive assignments

Early last month we wrote about some select Mets prospects that the team had been uncharacteristically aggressive in promoting to start the 2015 season.

It’s unclear whether it was a reversal in approach to managing...

Sandy Alderson is going to have to take a hard look at his “defense doesn’t matter” attitude. The Mets need middle infielders who can, well, middle infield if they’re to have any hope of going far into the playoffs. The gut reaction tonight is revulsion. Jacob deGrom started out blazing, going through the entire Washington lineup in order over the first three innings. The...

Heyman Blasts Claim That Alderson Revived The Mets

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports takes issue with the premise that general manager Sandy Alderson has revived the Mets as the new authorized biography Baseball Maverick claims. He is very critical of the overall positive and “saintly” portrayal of Alderson by former A’s beat writer Steve Kettmann who say’s Sandy’s one flaw is that he’s too competitive. “Maybe the book’s...

Sandy Alderson and the 'revived' Mets

There's a new book called: "Baseball Maverick: How Sandy Alderson Revolutionized Baseball and Revived the Mets." Apparently, Alderson has revolutionized the concept of "reviving" as well.

In 2014, the "revived" Mets finished...

Acquiring a shortstop for the 2015 season has been an ongoing issue for the New York Mets this offseason.

Right now Wilmer Flores looks to be...

New York Mets free agent projections: starters

Earlier this week I analyzed the New York Mets’ needs in the bullpen. Now I’ll stick with pitching but move into the starting rotation. As it so happens the Mets are very deep at starter going into 2015. Much of the rotation is young and under team control and the one wily, old veteran, Bartolo Colon, has one more year and $11 million left on his contract. As a result of controlling...
