Sandy Alderson came into the Winter Meetings having said that he will come out of the Winer Meetings with players. Not big-splash, franchise players but just players to help fill the Mets roster. He did just that today.

I’ve watched alot of him during the season and loved to hear him talk about all the [...]
I thought this was interesting to share. Most of you still remember Kaz Matsui. Since leaving Japan, he’s already moved three times, first to the Mets, then to the Rockies, and finally to the Astros. He finished the 2010 season in the Astros’ minor league system after being waived by them in May, and is now a free agent. If reports are correct, it appears that Matsui will leave MLB and return back to his home country of Japan to play [...]
