|Alderson ready to make move moves?|
Alderson thinks the Mets have improved on their bullpen and defense , especially in center-field.
“We’re pleased with where we are right now,” Alderson saidThe Mets garnered few headlines this week. The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Angels stole the show, tossing around nine-figure contracts without fear.
Instead the Mets operated in search of lower-profile signings to trim payroll while remaining competitive. They haggled with other clubs in trade discussions. They spent about $10 million. With $5 million allocated for Mike Pelfrey in arbitration, that leaves Alderson another $5 million to build a bench.
With regards to losing Jose Reyes to the Marlins Alderson said, "Of course, the departure of Reyes still pains much of the fan-base,. but time heals”, he hopes the maneuvers executed here aid that process.
