How Much Is Viagra

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is cialis Ok now Alderson is blowing smoke up your ass. What is cialis d’Arnaud only breaks camp with the team if Buck gets hurt, what is cialis otherwise his arbitrational clock is more important than early season big league at bats. What is 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is cialis Francesa: That he asked for too much money…

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

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

What is cialis Alderson: [Pause] … Uhh, what is cialis yeah.

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

What is cialis Alderson: Yeah, what is cialis absolutely. What is cialis       

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

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

What is 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. What is cialis Great job guys !
