Wright vs. Reyes – Did the Mets keep the right star?

At the conclusion of the 2011 season, General Manager Sandy Alderson was faced with what still stands as the biggest decision of his Mets tenure. David Wright and Jose Reyes were both 28 years old and set to become free agents. Alderson only had the budget to resign one of the team’s two homegrown, fan-favorite stars.

2015 season preview: New York Mets

The Mets moved decisively early in the offseason, adding a much-needed bat to the outfield in Michael Cuddyer. Unfortunately, general manager Sandy Alderson did little else, as it quickly became once again clear that team ownership wasn’t going to significantly increase payroll. Dreams of trading for a franchise shortstop kept fans warm throughout the winter, but the front office...

Wright’s Comeback Is Key Met Issue; Acknowledges He Must Adjust

Numerous times I’ve said the most pressing issue with the Mets is David Wright’s health – regardless of what happens with Matt Harvey.

Are Mets Capable of a 40 WAR Season and Going to the Playoffs?

Mark Simon of ESPN,  took to GM Sandy Alderson’s “10 win” comments from earlier this month and decided to measure that improvement in WAR.  After compiling a total of 29.6 WAR last year (ESPN WAR not FanGraphs), a 10 win improvement would put the Mets a shade under an overall total of 40.  According to Simon,”nine teams got at least that much WAR from their rosters...
