I'm guessing Alderson isn't just sitting around doing nothing and only focusing on one thing.

Well if that's the case, he's doing a truly remarkable job of letting absolutely no one know. Hopefully that actually yields results at some point.

"weve been linked to NOONE dude"

Do you always judge by rumors and think the media is always right in their speculations?

What I'd say is - I think it's pretty rare for something to happen completely out of the blue. We've been mentioned so little that virtually anything outside of a Dickey trade or perhaps Cody Ross/Miguel Olivo signing would indeed be completely out of the blue.

I think we all think that the Royals should have made that trade with us. Their GM kept saying that he wasn't available. I'd rather hear nothing until a deal is done than see Alderson lie to the fans. We may still resign Hairston and hopefully he is working on getting us another needed piece, either an outfielder, catcher or reliever. I would also love to hear some news, but I won't read into a lack of rumors.

Not as rare as you might think. I remember one such example of something happening with no warning on my birthday a few years ago. It was Cliff Lee re-signing with the Phillies.

Odds are he was just saying that to keep the Mets away. These GMs probably still think they can swindle the Mets, not realizing that they don't really need to go to that much effort, not when the WIlpons really don't want to make the moves to improve the team anyway; they have no ability to finance a competent team, so they penny-pinch everywhere, trying to recoup what they lost. And THAT naturally results in what we see on the field. And I'm convinced that the Wilpons will do whatever it takes to keep the Mets in stagnancy, at least until they're back at the financial level they feel is right. And then all bets are off.

an extra $25m from national tv next yr, plus santana $25m off the books. with bay.wright deferred money this yr, plus pelfrey torres hairston c.young r.ramirez and rauch $ off books this yr, why cant we make runs at cody ross and m.bourne? they fill clear needs and give us time to develop nimmo and others in farm while being competitive. try bourn 4yrs x $13m which is in line with pagan/victorino cf market, and ross $8m x2 yrs which is reasonable and somewhat in line with what ludwick got. ludwick did get 3 yrs..
