Mr. Wilpon, tear down this wall (then move it in a little, make it shorter and paint it blue)!
The former Mets GM stopped by the Allstate Studio this morning – or as Craig called it, “the lion’s den” – to conduct his first long-form interview since being let go by the organization last year.
After what has occurred in the Met organization in the past few months, it is clear to me that the Wilpons have an absolute gem in general manager Sandy Alderson.
Former Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson was present for New York’s historic collapse of 2007 and Oliver Perez’s temporary resurgence. Peterson joined WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Tuesday to recap the highs and lows of his time in Flushing.
The Mets finally won something. Yorvit Torrealba lost his grievance against team Thursday when an arbitrator ruled the Mets had the right to not complete a $14.4 million, three-year agreement with the catcher in November 2007.
Oliver Perez, our favorite piñata, is back in the news. As always, he slides in slowly, like one of his hanging curveballs, with his own delusional bent.
Sandy Alderson says he has no second thoughts about joining the Mets. That’s probably the Ivy League educated ex-Marine rather than the baseball GM talking. Nothing is going to take this man off-point.
Even though the Yankees came two wins shy of returning to the World Series and the Giants collapsed for the second season in a row, 2010 was a good year. Let’s start the countdown…
Sandy Alderson intends to come back from the winter meetings with at least one present for Mets fans — even though he isn’t planning to splurge.
Sandy Alderson has been appointed as the New York Mets general manager, and is now responsible for rebuilding a big-spending organization beset by problems on and off the field.
Sandy Alderson’s hiring may help to dismiss two perceptions about the Mets – that they are financially strapped, and that management – Jeff Wilpon in particular – has micro-managed.
Former Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Josh Byrnes has met with the Mets ownership group in his bid to succeed Omar Minaya as New York’s GM.
Sandy Alderson has met with New York Mets executives for the second time as the team searches for a new general manager.
Dana Brown is the latest candidate to interview with the New York Mets about their vacant general manager position.
The New York Mets have interviewed Chicago White Sox assistant general manager Rick Hahn in their search to hire a GM. Josh Byrnes will meet with the Mets on Wednesday.
