Maybe it’s because the players are yet to report, or because there is no free agent acquisition, but Sandy Alderson sure seems to be the center of attention.
First off he’s been tweeting which is always an interesting test for someone north of say … 50 to delve into. But Alderson seems to have a great grasp on what works in a tweet. He’s cracking jokes about the chop shops out at Shea, PAC money for gas and even the Met ability to reimburse for gas money.
Cerrone is holding a poll to ask if his tone is “appropriate”. I’m sure there’s someone who doesn’t approve but for the life of me I can’t imagine why anyone serious would take issue with this. In fact it is a MUCH NEEDED refreshing. change and has increased his likability exponentially.
Alderson also said he expects to have enough payroll flexibility to add to the major league roster if the team is in contention. Sorry but BMF is calling BS in that one.
Ain’t no way these cash strapped Wilpons are spending amy money to acquire talent in season. I think Alderson knows it and is covering his/their collective ass by making a statement he’ll never have to face the music. Sandy is savvy enough to know this team cant compete in the NL East this year therefore deadline deals will be a non-factor… Although I wouldn’t be shocked to see David Wright sent packing for prospects…
