The New York Mets’ next manager must be an independent thinker, newly hired General Manager Sandy Alderson said yesterday in his team debut.
Sandy Alderson was hired as general manager of the New York Mets, who are seeking to rebuild a franchise beset by losing seasons, dwindling attendance and personnel problems on and off the field.
New York Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson said club owners haven’t placed spending restrictions on him and that he expects player payroll to be $140 million to $150 million this season.
New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow that may require reconstructive surgery that would probably force him to miss most, if not all, of next season.
The New York Mets are considering changing Citi Field’s outfield walls to increase the number of home runs hit in the three-year-old stadium.
"We believe these modifications will increase the number of home runs without adversely affecting our pitchers."
