Alderson’s Draft Picks Are Indication Of Long Term Plan

The hardest thing about building a winning team is the anticipation. Before 1996, there were no guarantees that Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and the rest of a very young Yankees team would prosper at the same time, if at all. The same can be said about the 1986 Mets. Frank Cashen took Daryl Strawberry with the #1 overall pick in the 1980 draft. It happened to be the very first pick...

Could Mets Ultimately Fill An Outfield Spot Internally?

Let’s pretend for a moment that Sandy Alderson makes no effort to improve the Mets left field situation in the offseason.
