Jeff Wilpon Preaches Patience, Is Satisfied With The Plan
New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon told Lynn Worthy of the Press & Sun-Bulletin, that he remains committed to the organization’s focus on player development that general manager Sandy Alderson has championed since being hired in October 2010.
Wilpon visited Double-A Binghamton yesterday and preached patience and satisfaction with the plan.
“There’s a plan. You can’t change the plan every year. OK? Sandy [Alderson], it’s taken him two or three years to get the plan into effect, and we have to wait and see it out.”
“You can’t just say it’s not going as fast as we want — we’re six months behind, two months behind, whatever it might be. You’ve got to let the plan go all the way down the line. If you’re going to buy into something, you got to buy into it. You can’t change midstream, because if you’re constantly changing, there’s no chance you’re going to succeed. …
“I think we’re definitely happy with the plan and the direction we’re going. Is it happening as fast as anybody wants? No.
“You know, we’re fans. I’m a fan. I’m here to see good baseball. I want to see good baseball in New York. I want to see it up and down the organization. Sometimes it happens quicker, sometimes it doesn’t.”
So there you go… Looks like David Wright and Jeff Wilpon are using the same exact script…
