So far Sandy Alderson is F’n KILLING it as Met GM!
Never in my life have I been so excited by front office hires, let alone guys that aren’t even the GM. In my estimation Ricciardi was a very solid get but Paul DePodesta is an absolute HR.
This triumvirate can transform the Mets to the respectable, winning and confident franchise we’ve all been wanting.
If you want to pick apart either JP or DP on some questionable moves they made during their respective GM tenures that’s fair - especially DePodesta’s decision to trade Paul LoDuca who at the time was unquestionably the emotional leader of the Dodgers.
But the beauty of these hires is neither man has the autonomy to trade a player. They’re here to bring their individual strengths to the team and of course they both answer to Sandy Alderson who I already trust implicitly.
Oh sure I’d like to add a couple of free agents but I swear I’m content to sit on the sidelines for a year while these guys get us going in the right direction.
