Female Viagra Alternative

Viagra collection service Mets GM Sandy Alderson was on with Mike Francesa yesterday to answer some questions about where the 2013 Mets currently stand. Viagra collection service The team stands in the same spot as it stood since the R.A. Viagra collection service Dickey deal, viagra collection service stalled. Viagra collection service The picture Alderson gave of this upcoming Mets team was not very rosy but seriously what did you expect?  Some of you in the fan base love having smoke blown up your ass, viagra collection service all you want to hear is positives and unfortunately for you the GM is not the smoke blowin’ type. Viagra collection service Others are shocked; SHOCKED when the Alderson is candid and tells you the truth, viagra collection service that the outfield is not one he wants to put on the field and that he is having a hard time constructing a bullpen that doesn’t contend for the worst in baseball. Viagra collection service He also is on the level when he tells you there isn’t much out there in either trade or free agency that would make a whole helluva lot of difference so why just spend precious Skill Sets Bucks to prove that he has precious Sill Sets Bucks to spend.

Viagra collection service Let’s look at some of the highlights from Alderson’ call with ’ ZAUN:

Viagra collection service On what his ball club looks like right now and how he’ll improve it going forward Alderson said:

Viagra collection service Well I’d say right now it’s an incomplete. Viagra collection service But there’s still time in the semester, viagra collection service to give an educational metaphor. Viagra collection service We’ve been watching the market, viagra collection service we know what’s available, viagra collection service we’ve known what’s available. Viagra collection service We reconvene and review periodically, viagra collection service meaning every couple of days. Viagra collection service There are a number of things that we’re currently involved in pursuing. Viagra collection service But we’re hopeful we’ll have some additions before spring training starts, viagra collection service and I expect that we will have some additions, viagra collection service but at this point to say we’ve been patient is probably an understatement but that’s what we’ve been.

Viagra collection service I get the idea that Alderson would have loved to have made further renovations to this roster but the over value of many of this year’s uninspiring free agent class and unreasonable trade options have hinder that plan. Viagra collection service  Would Alderson like to trade for Justin Upton? Sure. Viagra collection service Would he deal away Zack Wheeler for him? Hell no. Viagra collection service Would he like to bring in a veteran outfielder? Of course. Viagra collection service But  would he go 3years/$39mil (Shane Victorino to the Red Sox) or even 3 years/$26 mil (Cody Ross to the D’Backs) ? Nope, viagra collection service and if he did you know you’d scream holy hell.

Viagra collection service On Travis d’Arnaud making the club’s opening day roster:

Viagra collection service Yeah, viagra collection service I think it would be unfair given his situation, viagra collection service the level of his development to say, viagra collection service look, viagra collection service he can’t make the team out of spring training, viagra collection service but we had a somewhat open situation with Matt Harvey last year, viagra collection service too, viagra collection service and he had a fairly good spring training, viagra collection service and yet he opened the season at the minor league level. Viagra collection service I just don’t want to rule anything out. Viagra collection service At the same time, viagra collection service I don’t want to create false expectations on the part of our fans or any sense of pressure on Travis himself. Viagra collection service But look, viagra collection service he hasn’t played since last June, viagra collection service he was out all the second half of last season with the knee injury. Viagra collection service He would have been in the big leagues last year had he not been injured. Viagra collection service Had he not been injured and played last year, viagra collection service I doubt he would have been available to us in a trade. Viagra collection service So you take the good with the bad. Viagra collection service But as far as Opening Day is concerned, viagra collection service he could be with us, viagra collection service but we do have a very capable veteran in John Buck as well. Viagra collection service      

Viagra collection service Ok now Alderson is blowing smoke up your ass. Viagra collection service d’Arnaud only breaks camp with the team if Buck gets hurt, viagra collection service otherwise his arbitrational clock is more important than early season big league at bats. Viagra collection service Last season’s knee injury and lack of playing in the second half of last season will come in handy to justify this decision.

Viagra collection service The next topic to come up from ‘ZAUN was the outfield:

Viagra collection service Well, viagra collection service the outfield is not a strength at this point, viagra collection service there’s no question about that. Viagra collection service There’s a need for an upgrade at almost every one of those positions. Viagra collection service Some of it could come internally. Viagra collection service We may see Lucas Duda substantially improve defensively and offensively.

Viagra collection service Or we may not see Lucas Duda substantially improve defensively and offensively. Viagra collection service Duda is a liability in the outfield and would be a perfect DH if he could…you…know….HIT! Is it me or does Duda also strike you as a guy you makes playing baseball a chore?

Viagra collection service Alderson then laid out what the outfield could look like on opening day:

Viagra collection service We’re looking at him(Duda) in left. Viagra collection service Center field right now is probably [Kirk] Nieuwenhuis and a player we obtained from the A’s, viagra collection service Colin Cowgill, viagra collection service who I think will be an interesting player to watch in spring training.

Viagra collection service Ah yes Colin Cowgill. Viagra collection service I too am interested in seeing Cowgill play as he looks to be the player that Mets have been waiting for the Alderson regime to bring in, viagra collection service the under the radar AAA to AAAA player who gets a chance to play regularly and makes an a strong contribution. Viagra collection service  From looking at Cowgill’s minor league numbers he’s shown the ability to get on base, viagra collection service to steal a base and not get caught hit with a bit of power and his defense is a major plus and he bats right handed. Viagra collection service Cowgill is an upgrade over Scott Hairstion and speaking of Scott Hairstion he is the exchange between ‘Zaun (‘Zaun is a play on the name of Francesa’s show Mike’s On but when the singers of his theme song make it sound like “MIKE ZAUN”) and Alderson:

Viagra collection service  Francesa: You expect to have a Hairston back or another player in the mix before the season starts?

Viagra collection service Alderson: Oh, viagra collection service we’re working on it. Viagra collection service Yeah. Viagra collection service And I think there’s been speculation about Scott. Viagra collection service I think that…

Viagra collection service Francesa: That he asked for too much money…

Viagra collection service Alderson: You know, viagra collection service money’s always an issue and I wouldn’t deny that, viagra collection service but it’s also a question of playing time and he wants to play — we understand that — and one of the things that exists for us right now, viagra collection service the dynamic is, viagra collection service that in order for us to sign Scott we want to be able to commit a certain amount of playing time. Viagra collection service This is where you balance two or three things going on at the same time. Viagra collection service If one or two other things were to happen, viagra collection service it might affect his playing time. Viagra collection service So it’s not just about the money, viagra collection service it’s also about playing time and what we can readily commit to Scott.

Viagra collection service Francesa: You want to see what you can pull off before you commit to him?

Viagra collection service Alderson: [Pause] … Uhh, viagra collection service yeah.

Viagra collection service Francesa: Okay, viagra collection service that’s fair. Viagra collection service I think that’s fair. Viagra collection service I mean, viagra collection service it is fair. Viagra collection service I mean, viagra collection service so it’s not a case of it just being a price, viagra collection service it’s also a situation of a couple other things actually can still happen or not.

Viagra collection service Alderson: Yeah, viagra collection service absolutely. Viagra collection service       

Viagra collection service Trying to read between the lines here, viagra collection service it seems Alderson is waiting and hoping that some GM out there (Kevin Towers) panics and will trade from an over stocked outfield for some fringe prospects. Viagra collection service   It goes back to the Upton talk I think Alderson believes he still has a shot at Upton and at his price but it’s going to take some more time and some more patience’s to pull it off. Viagra collection service Even if it’s not Upton he gets it, viagra collection service seems before he commits those precious Skill Sets Bucks to Hairston, viagra collection service he leaves no options uncovered. Viagra collection service No one is giving Scott Hairston 2ys/$8mil.

Viagra collection service Alderson goes on in the rest of the interview to talk about how he sees both Johan Santana and Dillon Gee bouncing back from injury, viagra collection service how he hopes the younger bullpen arms he has will make an impact, viagra collection service how he has an eye on 2014 but his ‘dominant eye” is on 2013, viagra collection service and how he’s not happy with the way the Mets have finished that lase few seasons.

Viagra collection service Big tip of the Mets cap to Amazin’ Avenue and Eric Simon and Steve Flanagan who posted a transcript of Francesa and Alderson’s conversation. Viagra collection service Great job guys !
