Generic viagra online Last night I had the privilege to be invited to be part of the Mets bloggers Q & A conference call with Mets GM Sandy Alderson. Generic viagra online Eric Simon and the staff at Amazin’ Avenue have done another outstanding job of putting together a transcript of the conference call (click the link and read the whole transcript it will be the most informative information you’ll get about the Mets anywhere) and I thank them very much for undertaking the chore of transcribing and crediting each blogger with a link to our sites along with our questions, generic viagra online Thanks again Eric.

Generic viagra online A few observations I took from the call:

Generic viagra online Alderson is playing his hand in the Jose Reyes sweepstakes like a top poker player. Generic viagra online In years past, generic viagra online the Mets were always duped into not just setting the market price on free agents but bidding against themselves. Generic viagra online His answer to the question on whether he thought of Reyes as a franchise player was 100 % spot on:

Generic viagra online Do I consider him a franchise player? Yes. Generic viagra online But a franchise player is only valuable as such if he is contributing to a winning franchise as opposed to simply acting as eye wash for a team that is not very good.

Generic viagra online Again, generic viagra online everybody loves Reyes and wants him to be a Met For Life, generic viagra online yet less than 5, generic viagra online000 fans showed up on the final day of the season and what may have been Reyes last game as a Met. Generic viagra online That’s why Alderson doesn’t play to the lunatic fringe of Metsfandom and for that I am so grateful.

Generic viagra online Alderson got into the business end of running the Mets as Howard Megdal, generic viagra online who should be your go to read with the anything Mets related but most certainly on learning the financial end of what the Skill Sets and the organization are up against in these trying money times with the Mets. Generic viagra online It may a bit simplistic on my part but it seems Alderson is saying that he has x-amount of dollars in his budget given to him by ownership and he has to do the best he and his staff can to fill the roster with players good enough to compete and not hurt the bedrock of foundation of the organization, generic viagra online the farm system. Generic viagra online There are some (I’d say a minority) of Mets fans who don’t get the fact that finances of this franchise are in a total state of flux but no matter the outcome, generic viagra online it would take either a discovery of oil or gold during the renovation of the Citi Field outfield for the Skill Sets to own this team for the long term. Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online I really believe Alderson enjoys doing these Q & A’s with the Mets bloggers more than dealing with the MSM. Generic viagra online The first one we did last year lasted about half an hour, generic viagra online then when we met with Alderson face to face at the Mets Holiday Party he joined us in our own little group for more questions and didn‘t seem to be in a hurry to get away from us. Generic viagra online Last night he spoke to us for an hour and seemed to enjoy the questions and giving us insight into what he and his staff are doing to making the Mets into a top flight franchise.

Generic viagra online His answer to my question was about that, generic viagra online he is hell-bent in turning around the perception of the NY Mets franchise, generic viagra online as much as Alderson feels there has been progress in that direction he knows the only way to advance it is for him to put together a winning team:

Generic viagra online {Steve Keane (The Eddie Kranepool Society): Your first year as a Mets general manager, generic viagra online how would you assess your progress that you and your staff have made in the first year with the Mets? What has been the most challenging situation or thing that’s happened with you as the GM of the Mets, generic viagra online and what’s been the biggest surprise on the positive side and on the negative side?

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online Alderson: I look at things in three areas. Generic viagra online The organization as a whole, generic viagra online the infrastructure, generic viagra online what’s happening in player development and scouting, generic viagra online and what’s happening at the major league level.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online Organizationally, generic viagra online I’m very pleased with where we are. Generic viagra online We’re not fully where we want to be. Generic viagra online In the areas of structure and process and personnel, generic viagra online we’re making a lot of progress. Generic viagra online We made some personnel changes last year, generic viagra online we’ve made a few this year. Generic viagra online The more important changes organizationally have come in the area of process as we blend the pre-existing staff with newly added staff. Generic viagra online From an organizational standpoint, generic viagra online we’ve made some progress.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online Player-development-wise, generic viagra online we’ve made significant progress, generic viagra online I think our approach to the draft last year was a departure from previous years, generic viagra online and I think at least early returns are that it was a positive change. Generic viagra online If you look at our top prospects, generic viagra online we were able to add to that list not only from not only the further development of existing players, generic viagra online but also from the draft as well as the trade, generic viagra online most prominently the trade for Zack Wheeler. Generic viagra online I think player-development-wise, generic viagra online the continued development of Matt Harvey and some others, generic viagra online and remember at this time last year, generic viagra online Matt Harvey had never thrown a professional pitch. Generic viagra online I think some very positive things are happening at the player development and scouting level.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online At the major league level, generic viagra online I’m very pleased with Terry Collins last year and I think our major league staff will be even stronger this year than it was. Generic viagra online Dave Hudgens did a great job in refocusing our offensive philosophy. Generic viagra online I think we’ve made a lot of progress philosophically at least in how we are approaching the game, generic viagra online not just in respect to hitting, generic viagra online but a more aggressive approach, generic viagra online a more accountable approach that Terry has demanded.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online If you tie those three things together, generic viagra online what I’d hoped to achieve in the first year primarily was to change the perception of the organization. Generic viagra online Despite the fact that we didn’t finish over .500, generic viagra online I think overall, generic viagra online the way the team played, generic viagra online some of the other things that happened over the course of the year, generic viagra online did help to change the perception of the organization and its direction and its chances of success in the future.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online My biggest disappointment going back to last year was just the way we finished the season. Generic viagra online We finished poorly, generic viagra online we started poorly. Generic viagra online Part of that was attributable to injury, generic viagra online but some of it was a result of weakening the team later for long-term benefit. Generic viagra online I think for example, generic viagra online if we’d kept Frankie Rodriguez, generic viagra online we would have finished well over .500. Generic viagra online I think that the lack of a closer cost us a number of games.

Generic viagra online  

Generic viagra online But, generic viagra online the overall perception did change. Generic viagra online I think that there is some greater confidence in the future for the Mets and that was an important thing to accomplish. Generic viagra online I think the way we finished detracted from that somewhat, generic viagra online I think we were able to move people’s thinking in that direction.}

Generic viagra online I’d like to thank Danielle Parillo and Shannon Forde for putting this and all the Mets bloggers event together and of course a big thank you to Sandy Alderson for his time and insight
