An article by posted on March 22, 2011 0 Comments

The Mets were a mediocre team in 2010, finishing the season with a 79-83 record.

Are The Mets Too Big To Fail?

Alderson Vows That Only The Best 25 Players Will Make The Cut

Despite what my colleague Greg Pomes wrote here on Tuesday regarding Oliver Perez being guaranteed a spot on the roster, a solid case can be made that Alderson’s comment was taken out of context or perhaps even misinterpreted. Yesterday, Alderson not only made it clear that he will cut Oliver Perez and the remaining $12 million […]
