Sandy Alderson on WFAN

“I’m not happy where we are in preparation for 2013,” Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson said about the roster he has assembled so far this offseason. “… I can assure you that where we are now is not where we want to be opening spring training. I mean, it’s conceivable we could be in the same position, but it’s not where we want to be.”

Well, at least we’re all on the same page. Twenty-five days to go…

  1. Paul,

    Keep an eye on the Blue Jays. Why? Because they were within one game of having the same record as the Mets last year.

    It’s one thing to go out and try and “buy” a half dozen wins during the off-season with a couple of top-drawer signings. But Toronto needed to buy 20 wins, as the wild card winners in the AL won 93 last year.

    The Mets are at least a half dozen players out and, likely, more than that. The next two or three years will likely look like the late ’70s out at Citi Field; it won’t be pretty. But, I would like to think that Alderson and crew made some decent deals for for some good young talent that’ll gel and be part of the organization for a long time.

    There are two teams in the same boat taking two entirely different approaches. Let’s see which one works and which one doesn’t–or if both work or both don’t. So, I don’t know if Alderson is saying stuff just to say stuff–that, deep down, he knows the Mets are screwed for the next couple years, or he’s deluding himself to think the Mets are going to be something other than a doormat in that same next couple years.
