Listening to Alderson's hiring press conference and thought I'd look him up here. Way to be on top of things...he's been the GM for less than 20 minutes and already has a page here!

He just said a "fiery manager may be the right choice" for the Mets right now, "with or without experience." Well, that is Wally Backman, so in a few weeks we'll see if he was just trying to appease us Mets fans who want Wally with these opening remarks or he is the new manager.

Welcome to NY Sandy. Now let's put a winner on the field!!!

Somehow, I don't have a good feeling about him. He wants to trade all the star players and what will that bring? 55 wins at best in 2011? It'll make Oafmar look like a genius!

And why was the commissioner's office so quick to get rid of him? Naturally, the Mets get him, right? He'll be like the Art Howe of GM's...oh wait, he hired him in Oakland.

I also don't have a good feeling about him. I saw him on Mike Francesca recently talking about the Mets and the future, and I find it off-putting how he calls the team a "product." I'm glad he's trying to put a good "product" on the field, but I'd rather hear him speak about improving the "team's competitiveness." Speaking about "product" reminds me too much of Al Harazin and the Wilpon's wanting to make the team more family oriented.

Looks like Selig brought him in to try to run the club for Wilpon on a shoestring. I doubt he'll stick around after Wilpon's gone to build an actual winner. He'll probably be the hatchet man who'll try to make the best out of the unpopular moves needed to keep Wilpon on the throne.

Mets fans will probably remember him as a liquidator rather than builder.

It has to be said: Sandy has not done a good job so far.

I was very conflicted about Sandy trading R.A. Dickey to Toronto because he could've traded Gee but here's hoping that the trade works out for both teams. There is an old saying: "In order to save a village, you have to burn it."
