Mets Rumors: Sandy Alderson's Playbook for 2014 Mets (WFAN Interview)


Mets Rumors:


I finally got a chance to listen (in full) The Sandy Alderson interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN, which was about the State of Mets and where they going this off-season..

Here is what I took from it:

The Mets are in the market for two outfielders with some power. Sandy Alderson mentioned 16 outfielder who are on Mets board which ranges from A+ to C+ Ratings. He mentioned he has 9 Trade possible interest and 7 from the Free Agent market.. He mentioned even Juan Lagares is not even safe as a starter in centerfield, even though he thinks his defense and speed are assets that help the club. Pure speculation, but a guy like Dexter Fowler might have some interest from the Mets brass..

Catcher Travis d'Arnaud will finally get his chance behind the plate. Whether or not they will improve with a backup was not spoken. I'm sure last minute deals..

Either Lucas Duda or Ike Davis will get traded this off-season with Lucas Duda wanted more in a trade. Ike Davis has been mentioned to go more in a trade, but it not be the case. He thinks they both have good profiles, but Ike has value to the club with his power and defense.  He did say the Mets Starting First basemen Job will come from within.. Which could mean we could still see Murphy at first base with Eric Young Jr. playing second base..That is if both Duda/Davis are traded (wink).

Did not mention whether Daniel Murphy was a trade candidate, but you can speculate there might be some possible trade interest.

The Mets will trade starting pitching for power, I believe he was talking about a Rafael Montero. Could the Mets get a Matt Kemp or Even a Andre Ethier from the Dodgers? I'm sure Jose Bautista might have to be on that list of prime candidates as well.. He did mention that Noah Syndergaard will not get traded.

Alderson believes the Mets need to make an improvement as shortstop. He did say the Mets did not have any contact with Jhonny Peralta but everybody in North America knows he did in Orlando. He did only mention Peralta, Stephen Drew, and Rafael Furcal as listed potential upgrades.

Alderson acknowledged the Mets are in need of two innings eaters (Starters). Each 150-200 inning guys and there is a possibility of 25 Free agent Targets. He also said there is many lefty and righty candidates for the bullpen. So the possible candidates can range from many, but the offense will need to be filled first..

Mets Owners agree to pay $162 Million to settle lawsuit


The owners of the New York Mets agreed to pay $162 million to settle a lawsuit by the trustee seeking money for the victims of Bernard Madoff's fraud, a deal that eases pressure on the owners of the cash-strapped baseball team.

The settlement calls for payments over a five-year period and Wilpon and Katz will not have to pay any cash until the fourth year. The $162 million could end up being mostly paid with money returning to the owners' Sterling Equities firm as a result of being a victim of the fraud.

Audio: Alderson says Jose Reyes will "very likely" miss 2-3 weeks


No official word from the Mets yet on Jose Reyes‘ hamstring injury,  but general manager Sandy Alderson just said during a radio interview with Joe and Evan (WFAN) that the shortstop is “very likely” to miss 2-3 weeks.

Reyes spent two weeks on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring last month and aggravated the same injury yesterday, leaving in the second inning.


It’s hard to imagine relatively minor hamstring problems really hurting Reyes’ stock much as he heads to free agency, but he’ll likely end up missing at least 30 games this season after sitting out 29 games last year and 126 games in 2009.

Even if he comes back in just two weeks and stays healthy for the stretch run Reyes will have played in 301 of 486 games since the start of 2009.

Of course, he’s also a 28-year-old shortstop with a good glove, excellent speed, and an .884 OPS, so tweaked hamstring or not teams will be lining up to sign him for huge money in a few months.

Audio: Jose Reyes Raps (Reggaeton)




Listen to Mets Shortstop Jose Reyes in his rapping World Premiere.

"No Hay Amigo" (There Is No Friend) was just a rough demo by Big Mato and Vakero which got leaked in the Dominican Republic. Producer SPKilla got Reyes, or "La Melaza" as he's called by those who know him well, involved. He immediately got hooked on the track and decided to do a remix of it, inviting along established reggaeton artist Voltio and Poeta Callejero.

The lyrics of the song are based on the struggles Reyes encountered as a youngster in Palmar Arriba, his hometown on the Caribbean island. He makes reference to those people who are only there for you when you're at the top, but are nowhere to be seen when you're down and out.
