Viagra Money Order

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

Vipps pharmacy Let’s look at some of the highlights from Alderson’ call with ’ ZAUN:

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

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

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

Vipps pharmacy On Travis d’Arnaud making the club’s opening day roster:

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

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

Vipps pharmacy The next topic to come up from ‘ZAUN was the outfield:

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

Vipps pharmacy Or we may not see Lucas Duda substantially improve defensively and offensively. Vipps pharmacy 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?

Vipps pharmacy Alderson then laid out what the outfield could look like on opening day:

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

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

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

Vipps pharmacy Alderson: Oh, vipps pharmacy we’re working on it. Vipps pharmacy Yeah. Vipps pharmacy And I think there’s been speculation about Scott. Vipps pharmacy I think that…

Vipps pharmacy Francesa: That he asked for too much money…

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

Vipps pharmacy Francesa: You want to see what you can pull off before you commit to him?

Vipps pharmacy Alderson: [Pause] … Uhh, vipps pharmacy yeah.

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

Vipps pharmacy Alderson: Yeah, vipps pharmacy absolutely. Vipps pharmacy       

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

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

Vipps pharmacy 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. Vipps pharmacy Great job guys !
