All this clown has done is acquire Wheeler, let Reyes walk for nothing, make a couple of horrible trades (Pagan), and build a horrible bullpen.
fargol could do a better job as GM
Ah, of course!
Lets draft that redneck center fielder who never played a single actual game of baseball over Matt Barnes!
i have no issue w/ the nimmo selection
every scout in america thinks the kid will be a stud and alot of people on this board will likely look stupid in the long run....the kid is raw but hes got about as much potential as anyone in the system
what i do have a problem w/ is the gavin cecchini pick....
bro did you see what sandy did to the pen last year?
Alderson is doing exactly what he was brought to do. Bring the payroll down and bring the operational costs down. He has not only let go of high salary players. He has also gotten rid of scouts, coaches, trainers and even the long time equipment manager and replaced them with (presumably) lower cost options or added those responsabilites to other people within the organization. All he is doing is managing the team in an effort to make it more profitable and allowing the Wilpons to keep it in spite of all their financial troubles.
Right now his job has nothing to do with winning. It's all about keeping the team in Wilpon hands. For that, he has to keep the public interested while at the same time letting go of the best players. That's the reason he is trying to sell (and a lot of us are buying into) all this horse poo about homegrown talent and financial flexibility to get players at the trade deadline. It's all a ruse. Look at last year. The team was doing great at the half point. No players were acquired for the playoff run.
He is a very good GM and he is doing his job flawlessly. The team will be under Wilpon for a very long time. Hard days are ahead. Can you imagine how it will be like when Fred Wilpon dies and Jeffy is the man in charge? Oh my... hard days indeed.

Have no fear if the estate tax is re-instated to the old levels Jeff would have to sell the team in order to pay the taxes.

Sure did...and yea, you could certainly make a legit complaint about his job with fixing it last year. I wanted Broxton in the worst way but we got francisco. The Ramirez acquisition bombed but to be fair, he showed every indication of being a dominant reliever. The bp is the hardest thing to build.
