Mets have not ruled out George Springer even after adding two big salaries today. Mets and Jays have been seen as the 2 most prominent pursuers of Springer, who has 3 C’s going for him: clutch, clubhouse and center field. Sandy Alderson said in the zoom: “We’re always hungry”
“Today we’ve acquired one of the great players in Major League Baseball.”
Watch live today at 3:00 p.m. right here on Twitter as Sandy Alderson and Jared Porter will discuss our acquisition of Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco.
Hear from @Mets
President Sandy Alderson & GM Jared Porter at 3pm ET on MLB Network 📺
Sandy Alderson says the Mets intend to approach Francisco Lindor about a potential extension "in the next few weeks," but admits "there's no guarantee" that anything gets done.
Lindor can become a free agent after this season.
(Sandy Alderson almost immediately trading two of Brodie Van Wagenen's top draft picks after BVW immediately traded one of Sandy's is kind of hilarious.)
Sandy Alderson said the luxury tax threshold is a significant consideration but not one they absolutely can't pass. Yes, a Mets exec said that.
Sandy Alderson says Mets leadership has reached out to team employees regarding yesterday's events in Washington D.C., in an effort to provide support, comfort, etc.
"I found yesterday disturbing on many different levels, and I'm sure many people did," Alderson said.
Sandy Alderson on the Mets' appetite to add another big contract after trading for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco:
"We're always hungry"
Sandy Alderson - an absolute class act - ends the Lindor/Carrasco press conference by thanking the Indians for their involvement in the negotiations, knowing they had a tough time with being pushed to deal their star.
#Mets president Sandy Alderson, a former Marine: "I found yesterday to be disturbing on many different levels. For somebody like myself who has spent a few years defending democracy in some way, not just yesterday, but the last few years have been extraordinarily disappointing.'
"I think Lindor's the kind of player that makes one smile."
Mets GM Jared Porter and president Sandy Alderson discuss what makes Francisco Lindor so special:
Of Andres Gimenez, Sandy Alderson said, "He was central to Cleveland’s interest in making a deal.” #Mets
Sandy Alderson: “As someone who’s spent many years defending democracy... the last few years have been very disappointing.”
"Two very good questions, neither of which I'm going to answer."
Boy, I missed Sandy Alderson.
Sandy Alderson on the Mets' appetite for another major move (/me on Chipotle): "We’re always hungry."
Sandy Alderson said back in November that the #Mets weren't one player away, and now:
"Well, we're closer to one player away.''
"This deal has been in the works for a long time"
Sandy Alderson explains how the Mets' trade for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco went down https://t.co/G9gQfxz7wQ
Sandy Alderson says that the team could decide to go past the luxury tax.
"I found yesterday disturbing on many different levels, and I'm sure most people did," Sandy Alderson said.
Alderson said the Mets reached out to employees about the events at the Capitol.
"We're always hungry," Sandy Alderson said about the appetite for another major addition to the roster.
That’s a winning squad right there.
" We’re not sure where the notion came from that money is no object for Steve Cohen’s Mets; it certainly didn’t come from Cohen, Sandy Alderson or Jared Porter."
also never said they absolutely WON'T go over the luxury tax, but you have no problem reporting that as gospel.
Love these moronic stories. If Sandy Alderson & Jared Porter haven’t talked to every team about players they’re interested in @StevenACohen2
should fire him immediately. What exactly makes this newsworthy?
