07:22 AM ET 11.14 | In the eyes of Sandy Alderson, the Mets' reputation has headed in the right direction this offseason. The Mets GM said he felt that teams and agents saw the franchise as having a little more credibility. Well, except, it seems with the highest-profile player agent out there. After the third day of the GM meetings, Scott Boras chided the Mets, a big market team, for limiting their payroll. ... "The Mets are like NASA," Boras said. "They have big rockets, a lot of platforms and very few astronauts. Astronauts are hard to find. They've got one guy with the 'Wright' stuff, that's for sure. And they've got a lot of 'Arm'-strongs, too. But they're certainly a club that I'm sure that's in pursuit of a higher level of talent." Alderson, when asked about the comment, chuckled and then disagreed.
