Sandy Alderson said recently:
"Again, it's hard for me to predict what exactly will happen," Alderson said. "But we're not going to spend the money in mid-December just because we have it. We may spend it in January. We may spend it at some other time. We may not spend it. But the important thing is we have the flexibility to make a baseball decision about that rather than be constrained by sort of an artificial financial limitation."
As of this moment, Sandy Alderson hasn't made a bad deal. But, he also hasn't made one since the Carlos Beltran for Zack Wheeler trade.
Will the addition of Travis d'Arnaud change the perception of Sandy overnight?
We have a good idea what might come down today... d'Arnaud, Syndergaard, Buck for Dickey and Thole... obbiously, this would be a win/win deal for two teams with two completely different objectives. Toronto wants to win now while the Mets need to build a future.
But, the deal isn't done yet so we're still at one great deal (Wheeler) no bad deals, and no other deals...
Is not making a bad deal good enough?
Can we honestly judge him at this point in the off-season?
And how has his brain trust handled the international FA/draft situation (I can answer that today)...
It should be a fun day to be a Mets fan. Let's get going.
