Generic cialis Mets GM Sandy Alderson was on with Mike Francesa yesterday to answer some questions about where the 2013 Mets currently stand. Generic cialis The team stands in the same spot as it stood since the R.A. Generic cialis Dickey deal, generic cialis stalled. Generic cialis 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, generic cialis all you want to hear is positives and unfortunately for you the GM is not the smoke blowin’ type. Generic cialis Others are shocked; SHOCKED when the Alderson is candid and tells you the truth, generic cialis 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. Generic cialis 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.

Generic cialis Let’s look at some of the highlights from Alderson’ call with ’ ZAUN:

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

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

Generic cialis 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. Generic cialis  Would Alderson like to trade for Justin Upton? Sure. Generic cialis Would he deal away Zack Wheeler for him? Hell no. Generic cialis Would he like to bring in a veteran outfielder? Of course. Generic cialis 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, generic cialis and if he did you know you’d scream holy hell.

Generic cialis On Travis d’Arnaud making the club’s opening day roster:

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

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

Generic cialis The next topic to come up from ‘ZAUN was the outfield:

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

Generic cialis Or we may not see Lucas Duda substantially improve defensively and offensively. Generic cialis 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?

Generic cialis Alderson then laid out what the outfield could look like on opening day:

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

Generic cialis Ah yes Colin Cowgill. Generic cialis 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, generic cialis the under the radar AAA to AAAA player who gets a chance to play regularly and makes an a strong contribution. Generic cialis  From looking at Cowgill’s minor league numbers he’s shown the ability to get on base, generic cialis 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. Generic cialis 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:

Generic cialis  Francesa: You expect to have a Hairston back or another player in the mix before the season starts?

Generic cialis Alderson: Oh, generic cialis we’re working on it. Generic cialis Yeah. Generic cialis And I think there’s been speculation about Scott. Generic cialis I think that…

Generic cialis Francesa: That he asked for too much money…

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

Generic cialis Francesa: You want to see what you can pull off before you commit to him?

Generic cialis Alderson: [Pause] … Uhh, generic cialis yeah.

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

Generic cialis Alderson: Yeah, generic cialis absolutely. Generic cialis       

Generic cialis Trying to read between the lines here, generic cialis 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. Generic cialis   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. Generic cialis Even if it’s not Upton he gets it, generic cialis seems before he commits those precious Skill Sets Bucks to Hairston, generic cialis he leaves no options uncovered. Generic cialis No one is giving Scott Hairston 2ys/$8mil.

Generic cialis 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, generic cialis how he hopes the younger bullpen arms he has will make an impact, generic cialis how he has an eye on 2014 but his ‘dominant eye” is on 2013, generic cialis and how he’s not happy with the way the Mets have finished that lase few seasons.

Generic cialis 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. Generic cialis Great job guys !
