With the Rochester Red Wings officially renewing their agreement with the Minnesota Twins in the International League, the Mets are officially stuck with Las Vegas as their Triple-A affiliate through the 2016 season. “We’ve been happy in Las Vegas,” Sandy Alderson said Tuesday afternoon. “Some of the distance issues and so forth notwithstanding, we really have had a good...

Wright Still Frustrated, Alderson Says He’s Handling It Well

David Wright went 0-for-4 in yesterday’s finale against the Athletics, and is just 1-for-17 in his last five games while batting .268 this season. In an interview with the Rockland Times, Wright said: “No one is happy with the position we are in” and the team has missed opportunities to win games they should have won, but the team has young players “learning on the job...

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...

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?

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...

Is Sandy Alderson a buyer or cellar?

For those of you who don’t care about theater, there is a hit show both on Broadway and on tour entitled “Buyer & Cellar.” In this play a young actor named Alex More gets propositioned into running a shopping center of old Hollywood and Broadway collectibles. The only hitch is that this shopping center is in the basement of Barbara Streisand’s home, and she is the only...
