Sandy Alderson: No Big Trades, No Big Spending, Johan Okay, Needs To Fill Two Bench Spots

Sandy Alderson spoke to reporters this afternoon and Adam Rubin of ESPN New York was kind enough to transcribe most of the details. Sandy Alderson said it’s “fair” to say Mets won’t sign anyone who commands more than $1.5 million. Still, Alderson said free agent market should still be “robust” since players who made more than $1.5 million […]

Here’s something I dug up from a couple of years ago that brings us back to the hot stove season of 1975, when the Mets also traded one of the team’s most popular players – a move they would eventually regret. Mike Lloyd does a nice job in the re-telling of what happened back then. […]
