Viagra usa I think we all need to take a big deep breath. Viagra usa This Skill Sets Cash Call has gotten the fan base acting like a bunch of blue and orange Chicken Little’s. Viagra usa  The skies of Flushing may look dark and ominous but it’s not falling. Viagra usa This may in fact, viagra usa be the best thing that could happen to the Mets.

Viagra usa There seems to be a misunderstanding in the fan base that thinks spending lots of money equals championships, viagra usa if that’s the case, viagra usa how come there are only two World Series trophy’s on display at the Mets Hall of Fame? No one was better at pissing away the Skill Sets cash than Omar Minaya but his administration had no structure or foresight  or the balls to tell Jeffey stay out the baseball operations way. Viagra usa The minor league system, viagra usa the life blood of any organization, viagra usa has been run about as well as Mayor Bloomberg’s snow removal system. Viagra usa The biggest indictment of the failure of the Mets system is the image still burned in my memory of Fernando Martinez in his first day as a major leaguer, viagra usa failing to run out a ball hit in front of home plate. Viagra usa At that point, viagra usa F-Mart should have been taken to La Guardia Airport and sent back to Buffalo and then the whole minor league system should have been bulldozed and built back from the ground up. Viagra usa It didn’t because there was no one in charge with balls or brains to fix it. Viagra usa Until now.

Viagra usa The best move in the last couple of days by the Mets (besides signing R.A. Viagra usa Dickey and Angel Pagan clearing the arbitration eligible list) was hearing Sandy Alderson in his straight shooter way, viagra usa talk to us like intelligent adults. Viagra usa There was no spin or sleight of hand like we’re used to, viagra usa there was a right between the eyes shot of reality (Adam Rubin’ transcript of the Alderson conference call is required reading for the Mets masses)

Viagra usa “First of all, viagra usa I want to emphasize that the plan that we have pursued the last couple of months was limited by only one fact, viagra usa and that was the level of the existing payroll. Viagra usa Our payroll going into the season will be somewhere between $140 million and $150 million. Viagra usa I think that is significantly higher than we’d like to be on an annual basis — a product of adding some additional players that we felt the roster needed as well as some existing commitments. Viagra usa The plan and the approach that I’ve taken over the last two months has not been affected at all by any other outside factors.

Viagra usa  

Viagra usa “From my standpoint, viagra usa when I took this position, viagra usa when I interviewed and took this position, viagra usa I was of course aware of the pre-existing involvement of the Wilpons and the Mets with Bernie Madoff. Viagra usa I wasn’t privy to all of the detail, viagra usa nor am I or most of us at this point privy to all that detail. Viagra usa And I wouldn’t expect to be. Viagra usa At the same time, viagra usa none of that has affected what I have done over the last two months. Viagra usa I don’t expect that it will have any impact on what I do over the next several months, viagra usa including into the 2012 offseason.”

Viagra usa Gone are the days of wasting money on has beens and underachievers as bench players just because they are your friends or are good at playing Hearts. Viagra usa Why give a 35 year old utility infielder $2mil when you can use a minor leaguer for $450K or a journeyman for a make good deal where performance equals a pay raise? We’re not used to such competence around here and I guess it takes time to understand, viagra usa there is spending money and there is spending money wisely.

Viagra usa Alderson also showed his leadership qualities by turning negative news into a positive when asked if he was worried about having the cash resources going forward:

Viagra usa No. Viagra usa I mean, viagra usa obviously there’s a certain level of ambiguity surrounding this news. Viagra usa But from my standpoint, viagra usa the facts are as they currently exist. Viagra usa And to some extent the decision to find a minority partner or some other source of recapitalizing the franchise is positive news from my standpoint. Viagra usa If there was an initial problem before, viagra usa that can only be positive from my standpoint.”

Viagra usa There seems to be a panic by a small group of Mets fans about the future of Jose Reyes and his tenure with the Mets. Viagra usa From hearing Alderson address this it will be Reyes performance and his contract demands that will dictate if he stays a Met for years to come. Viagra usa Ken Davidoff of Newsday has said of Pee Wee Cashman, viagra usa that he is “a stone cold killer” in the way he deal s with players as we’ve seen with Derek Jeter and the Rafael Soriano signing. Viagra usa I would say Alderson is a more of a calculated assassin. Viagra usa  Alderson will do what’s best for the Mets not Reyes and for that Mets should be grateful. Viagra usa  Alderson is not going to make the Mets a small market team he is going to make then a more efficient organization when it comes to handing out long term deals. Viagra usa  Anyone have a problem with that?
