Sandy Alderson needs to act swiftly in order to restore confidence in the eyes of the team’s fan base. With that in mind, here is what I think are the top five offseason issues he needs to address prior to the 2013 season.
Shoppach hit a go-ahead two-run single with two outs in the ninth inning that cleared the bases when center fielder Justin Ruggiano misplayed the ball Saturday night, lifting the New York Mets to a 5-3 victory
R.A. Dickey earned his 16th win of the season as the Mets finally snapped their losing skid on Saturday.
Jeremy Hefner gave the Mets six solid innings as they defeated the Padres 6-2 on Saturday night.

“Not too bad for a bunch of chickens,” Nick Swisher said after his big home run Sunday night, eager to take a shot at Mets closer Frank Francisco.
“Little Jerry Seinfeld” will be much more comfortable on a farm upstate than it was in the clubhouse at Citi Field.
Mets closer Frank Francisco has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle on his left side, and shortstop Ruben Tejada is back in the lineup.
