Alderson Gets the Gig?
Late nite buzz broke that Sandy Alderson is slated to get the GM position for our Mets.
This is probably a great move by the Mets and certainly not a bad one. Alderson is a proven baseball guy with enough respect in the game to give the entire organization the instant credibility we so desperately need.
The interesting wild card here is Texas GM Jon Daniels. The Queens born, Met fan bred, wunderkind who just took TX to the WS actually has an out in his contract this off-season should he choose to exercise it..
Whispers are that he sent word to Wilpons through “back channels” that he hoped they’d wait until the World Series was over to make this hire.
But the Wilpons are not waiting and I can’t say I blame ‘em.
I’d venture to guess if Daniels “finishes the job” by winning the Series his chances of leaving for Queens increase - so maybe it’s worth the wait. But if they lose I’d think he’d almost have to go back and then we could be left looking like fools - yet again.
Daniels has built a fantastic team in just a few short years. I understand there’s a newly signed YES Network-esque TV deal adding to the Rangers’ coffers now which means more money to spend on players… and the GM.
With our luck he’s prob just angling to play the Mets as leverage and nothing more. But if he were to return home and lead us to the promised land how great would that be…???
It’s tempting, but I’m happy with Sandy.
Yankee Fans Officially the WORST in Baseball
Lemme get this straight - the clown ass, drunk ass Yankee fans spit at, threw beer on and cursed out Cliff Lee’s WIFE when she was at the stadium???!!!???
Meanwhile BMF couldn’t be happier because it all but ensures Lee will not be a Yankee next season.
BMF sez 6-1 Lee’s back in Texas next year.
