Report: Alderson thinks Bourn price too steep for Mets


According to the NY Times,  Sandy Alderson, the general manager of the Mets, suggested the loss of a first-round pick would be too steep a price for the team to consider signing Michael Bourn, the best outfielder left on the free-agent market.

If they signed Bourn, a speedy 30-year-old center fielder, the Mets would be forced to give up the 11th overall pick of the draft as compensation.

During an interview Sunday with MLB Network Radio, Alderson said the Mets had been “very reluctant to consider that,” as it would undermine their vision for the future.

He added, “The blueprint here is to rebuild the farm system at the same time that we try to be competitive and for us to lose a first-round pick would be counter to that approach.”

Rumor Mill: Mets have strong interest in "The Beard" Brian Wilson


Rumor Mill:

The Mets are showing strong interest in former Giants closer Brian Wilson, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (on Twitter).

Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson watched Wilson yesterday in a private workout.

Alderson is "not sure" if the Mets will extend Wilson an offer, reports the New York Post's Mike Puma.

Before the New Year, Brian Wilson narrowed down his list of suitors in half from about nine or ten to approximately five.

The Giants are open to a reunion but are only willing to give Wilson a deal with a low base salary and performance-based incentives. The 30-year-old made only two appearances in 2012 before suffering a season-ending elbow injury.

Wilson has said in the past, that he does not want to go back to San Francisco because of the way he was treated and released..
