Mets Fans Are Fools

This must be what Sandy Alderson and the Wilpon’s think of us as they sit around their luxurious million dollar estates eating their caviar and sipping their imported wine.

Sandy Alderson may not be actively shopping third baseman, but he has gotten at least two offers according to Heyman. Alderson spoke to reporters last night and said, “he did not anticipate trading David Wright this winter”.
