Alderson has no pressure whatsoever, he can't be fired, Selig would go ape, and the Mets would look even more foolish.
I'll make you a bet right now - that the Mets never make the post-season with SA as GM.
Bottom line, Omar Minaya for all his faults and bumbling media persona is thrashing SA silly. Alderson has been here three years, and has given up every year before the Winter meetings were over.
He completely dropped the ball with Reyes, his trades for 'now' players have failed, his signings have flopped - on the plus side he's engineered two good trades for older players.
When taking everything into consideration - he's done a 4-5 out of 10 job IMO.
Basically, as fans for three disgusting seasons in which the org did not lift a finger to win, on the back of 2-3 similar disgusting seasons under Omar - we have received Wheeler, TDA, Syndergaard.
Basically, 3 lost seasons for 3 good prospects. Doesn't seem like much to me...
