Viagra picture I was fortunate to be invited to a conference call last night with Sandy Alderson and my fellow Mets bloggers. Viagra picture This is the second cc Alderson has done with bloggers and he seems genuinely happy to talk to us and values our input about the team. Viagra picture As great as it was talking to the Mets GM, viagra picture the biggest kick for me was reading all the Tweets from other baseball bloggers who were soooooooooooooo jealous that we were granted access to Alderson and reading how they wish the head of the team they root for would give the same courtesy. Viagra picture Imagine that, viagra picture the same wise ass’ who like to joke and make sarcastic remarks about the Mets, viagra picture are envious of Mets bloggers.

Viagra picture I’m slowly getting used to the frank and honest way Alderson does business, viagra picture whereas in the past, viagra picture I’ve always felt you had to read between the lines to find the truth out of anything coming out of Flushing , viagra picture but now it seems we’re getting the straight skinny from the Mets GM.

Viagra picture On the release of Castillo and Perez, viagra picture Alderson said that to some extent fan sentiment was a factor in releasing both players, viagra picture more so in Castillo’s case as the front office had hoped that Perez could make some kind of contribution. Viagra picture Alderson felt it was only fair that the new regime look at both players first hand instead of relying on hearsay. Viagra picture  

Viagra picture With Emaus winning the 2nd base job, viagra picture it’s clear his Rule 5 status helped him in winning the job over Justin Turner who had options. Viagra picture Alderson said that Emaus would only make the team as a starting baseman and not a bench player. Viagra picture  Alderson said he was happy that Emaus has come around with the bat and has shown signs of being effective turning the DP.

Viagra picture My question to Alderson was about the fight for the last spot in the bullpen, viagra picture but first I added a bit of editorializing:

Viagra picture “Between the offseason and spring, viagra picture it seems that there’s a minority in the fan base and a majority of the mainstream media that likes to dwell on the negative things that go on with the organization. Viagra picture They seem not to want to talk about that the team offensively has been terrific this spring, viagra picture it seems that batters have been taking to Dave Hudgens’s way of hitting, viagra picture a lot of walks, viagra picture a lot of doubles, viagra picture and the defense has been pretty good, viagra picture too, viagra picture maybe very good this spring, viagra picture but the big thing is the pitching. Viagra picture The pitching has been outstanding this spring and hopefully it will carry over to the season. Viagra picture Now you spoke about the bullpen, viagra picture and you do have decisions to make. Viagra picture How close is it in that seventh spot? It seems that we kind of figured the first six guys are in that pen, viagra picture and that last spot, viagra picture that seventh spot, viagra picture seems to be the one that’s up in the air. Viagra picture How are you going back and forth on that decision?”

Viagra picture Here is Alderson’ reply:

Viagra picture “That’s a very good question. Viagra picture If you look at the guys who are competing for the last two or three spots. Viagra picture You’ve got a young kid, viagra picture a Rule 5 pick who is untested, viagra picture who has improved, viagra picture we think, viagra picture greatly since the beginning of camp, viagra picture at least mechanically, viagra picture has shown a lot of command, viagra picture has shown good velocity, viagra picture and we think has real upside. Viagra picture As compared to somebody like Jason Isringhausen, viagra picture who is a veteran presence and not only because of what he can do on the mound but how he might influence the rest of that bullpen, viagra picture is an attraction for us. Viagra picture Then you’ve got a couple of guys, viagra picture [Blaine] Boyer, viagra picture Manny Acosta, viagra picture who are very, viagra picture very close in terms of overall results, viagra picture but they get there in different ways. Viagra picture Boyer is basically a ground ball pitcher. Viagra picture Acosta has the livelier fastball and is more of a strikeout guy, viagra picture maybe a little more command, viagra picture but occasionally gives up a three-run homer as he did yesterday. Viagra picture So not only is it a close competition, viagra picture but interestingly, viagra picture each of those guys represents a very different choice beyond how they perform, viagra picture and that’s what we’re trying to balance right now is the desire to win, viagra picture the feel-good story of somebody like Jason Isringhausen, viagra picture who has also performed well, viagra picture against the potential of somebody like Pedro Beato, viagra picture and then the two guys that we brought in. Viagra picture And we haven’t resolve those yet. Viagra picture We just had a meeting today with some of the front office people here with the coaches and Terry Collins and we resolved a few things but the bullpen is still unresolved.”

Viagra picture The problem is Boyer , viagra picturewho has had a great spring, viagra picture has an out clause in his contract to become a free agent if he doesn’t make the OD 25 man roster. Viagra picture In a perfect world I believe Alderson would take Izzy north and hope Boyer doesn’t get a ML contract from another team and he signs him to a minor league deal. Viagra picture The odds of that are slim.

Viagra picture There were great  questions  from all who participated and to read the entire transcript check out the post Eric Simon of Amazin’ Avenue   put together in detail of the conference call.
