Posted Sunday March 10, 2013, About: Mets GM Sandy Alderson on hot seat?
Insane. The guy inherited nothing but an empty farm and an overextended payroll. If he had Cashman money to work with, you can overcome that, but the Wilpons had the Madoff mess. That money funded the expansion of the payroll and led to dumb things ("Hey, Bobby Bo, take $25 million spread out instead of $5 million now! We earn 18% with Bernie!!!!" The idea was to work off the Beltran, Santana, KRod, Castillo, Perez, etc. contracts, and re-stock until the Wilpons found some cash. That is just happening now. Alderson deserves a chance to see this through, and "through" is not 2013.
