The front office believes that the veteran skipper is trying, Heyman notes, and officials appreciate his effort as the season continues to take a turn for the worse.
The advice here: Get the best deal possible and take it.
If Alderson is smart, he’ll leave Syndergaard alone, along with the rest of the rotation.
Making it less likely Gee would find a consistent spot with the Mets is the impressive season being had by left-handed prospect Steven Matz. In a hitter’s ballpark at Las Vegas, Matz has a 2.30 ERA.
There’s no concrete timetable for his return, but general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters on Monday it’s “realistic” that Wright could return by the All-Star break in mid-July.
Mets fans, you’re on alert. Get ready for the fireworks in 2016. Twenty-sixteen? Hang on a second. What happened to 2015?
The banged-up Mets are beginning to get some pieces back. They could use the help, too.
The feeling among club officials is that the team will have a better chance to return to the playoffs — and win in October — in 2016.
The Mets’ captain still feels pain when upright, due to spinal stenosis. And if he returns too soon, the consequences could be significant.
Assuming the Mets don’t secure a postseason berth, Alderson should get a pink slip. And the Wilpons, who can’t be fired and clearly have no intention of selling, will continue to kill our spirits and run this franchise into the ground.
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki might soon be on the trading block. But don’t expect the Mets to get him.
The Mets could certainly use a shortstop, though there are risks involved and acquiring him might not be practical.
When will David Wright be back in the lineup? Nobody knows — not even Mets general manager Sandy Alderson.
The phrase that must have reverberated through Alderson and Cashman’s heads this week sounds like the same one heard outside any casino in Vegas: “You win some, you lose some.”
Colon’s productivity on the mound — in addition to the leadership he brings off it — will likely make him unavailable come July, unless a team blows Alderson away with an offer.
