Video: Alderson On SNY Mets Hot Stove

Tonight, Sandy Alderson was a guest of Kevin Burkhardt on SNY’s Mets Hot Stove show. Here is Parts 1 and 2 of the interview courtesy of

Part One

On Reyes – “We’ve had a couple of face to face meetings, but I wouldn’t call them substantive in terms of a contract negotiation…Once the exclusive period ends, and other offers roll in, then I think things become more substantive and perhaps even more frequent than they were before.”

Part Two

On Wright – “Nobody is untouchable…but I would go back into the speel about those core players…In our case, David is one of those players (who identify with the fans), so we need to be careful there…But we want to build a winning team, and sometimes you have to make some difficult choices in order to do that…In those cases, you have to be cognizant of those players and the potential players coming in, but there’s nobody on the team who is untouchable.”

Nothing new really… A lot of hedging and a lot of what we’ve already heard before, but still some interesting and lighthearted moments.

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog transcribed the interview so you can read the full transcript there.
