Sandy Alderson with Kevin Burkhardt at Winter Meetings

Tonight in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt spoke with Mets GM Sandy Alderson about what he has in store during the first day or two at the Winter Meetings, and said the following:

  • They are looking at and trying to prioritize their needs, and will be more aggressive in areas they need to be.
  • Finding left handed relief help is a higher priority than a backup infielder.
  • He is gauging interest in players, and whether or not they would be interested in joining the Mets, and what they’re looking for in salary.
  • They are primarily in the information gathering stage, as it’s still unclear what a lot of players are looking for and where they want to be.
