Alderson says he could have spent the money but chose not to.
So for a lousy 6 million over 2 years, which is about $1.75 per season in normal money, he could have had a better hitter in the outfield than anyone he has now.
But he didn't want him. So if it wasn't because he didn't want to spend the money, it must have been because he didn't want to improve the outfield.
You tell me which is the bigger sin.

Sandy is on SNY right now with Kevin Burkhardt
Sandy looked visibly concerned about Francisco as the closer, and hinted he will add 1-2 more pen arms.
It might not be a popular one but this isn't the era of carrying bloated payrolls on a ship that was obviously sinking. (after 2009)
Sandy is more cerebral looking for longer term solutions where Omar was worried about the right now.
They both have their strengths and weaknesses but are in no way similar.

Mets off-season needs:
OF 1 - .200 hitter
OF 2 - Granderson C
SS - LOOK YOU'RE WRONG!!! DEAL WITH IT!!! GET US A SS!!!
1B - FAIL
SP - Colon C
BP - FAIL
That would make me 31.
Which coincidently is Piazza numbers, and he was hitting the ball in the stratosphere that year. I was single, lived alone. Had money and went Shea to see my team.
It was a good year.
