According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets GM Sandy Alderson is not as concerned about the protected draft pick as much as he is about rebuilding the credibility of the franchise.
“I don’t view the draft-pick situation as relevant to what we’re doing here,” Alderson said. “We’re trying to build the credibility of the franchise and that goes beyond where we’re picking in the draft.”
Those sentiments certainly will turn the stomachs of a few Met fans I know, and completely disputes what SNY has been dishing out lately about Sandy’s motives. Last week on MetsBlog, they floated the idea that Sandy Alderson is secretly rooting for the Mets to lose. Of course that’s preposterous to say of any general manager.
Here are the up to date reverse standings…
With four games remaining in the season, the Mets are currently tied with the San Francisco Giants with the 11th worst record and are mot in line for a protected first round pick.
The Mets have been on a roll of late, winning 9 of their last 13 games. It has seen them climb all the way from the sixth worst record last month to the 12th worst record after Wednesday’s 1-0 win against the Reds.
I love it… This is getting so interesting now and it’s only the beginning of what will be a drama-filled hot stove season this winter… Expect many great storylines…
