Sandy Alderson will address local media at 3:45 pm ET

Sandy Alderson will meet with the media at Citi Field at 3:45 pm ET on Tuesday, the team announced on e-mail.

Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer

I assume this is to give an update on Travis d’Arnaud, who is eligible to come off the the seven-day concussion DL tomorrow. He’ll probably also end up answering questions about Matt Harvey, who told SI.com that he wants to make seven starts for the Mets this year, which I’m sure was news to Alderson. And, he’ll probably also make a statement about his negotiations with Stephen Drew, who just signed with the Red Sox, because I bet Sandy’s office just got bombarded with phone calls from reporters on the subject. He’ll probably also discuss Juan Lagares, and whether he will be put on the bereavement list.

Does anyone have the marbles to ask him about the fact that his manager is losing his mind?

No CF, no C, no SS. No chance. That loud 'thump' you heard was Mets falling back into the cellar.

I think he's going to announce that because Lagares was hitting and fielding well, that Fred decided to send him away from the team for a while so they could re-teach him how to stink….for the sake of team unity.

No need for a press conference.  Here is what Alderson will say:


"We plan to evaluate our assets, weigh our options, then use our resources to make the best decisions accordingly."


Accordingly is a wasted word, but it makes the empty statement sound more intelligent.


I feel bad for Alderson because he has done a good job with the farm system and trading for prospects.  But unless this ownership is willing to spend some more money to improve the offense, it will be difficult to build a long-term winner.

WOR is actually going to cut into the "Deport All Brown People Hour" for the press conference.  I"m impressed.

I hope someone asks why the heck Wilmer Flores was brought up if he is just going to sit on the bench and rot.

Hi, this is Sandy Alderson. Just want to reiterate a few things:


1. We have no money

2. We have very few quality players

3. We see little changing as long as the name Wilpon is on the owners box.


Thank you..any questions?

Brad Houser

@SufferingMetsFan @Bob G  Someone has to explain to me why the tough, nasty, snarling, brutal, scary, frightening, aggressive NYC media gives the Wilpons and their brood such a pass…Where are the headlines on the sports pages "FRED SELL", FRED YOUR TEAM STINKS", FRED, DO SOMETHING.

It's just a matter of time when the headlines will say: Mets leaving NY and heading to Memphis.
