    I know ARoid would be a complete ********. Thank God that didn't happen.

    I'll be happy once this is approved and done.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    It’s crazy Sandy was way too conservative for my liking and hardly ever dealt prospects to improve the team(Cespedes deal aside), but Brody is a ****ing wild one and is willing to deal prospects left and right for minor improvements or none some times.

    Can we get a GM that can balance this?
    I agree.

    I think Sandy’s job will be to construct an FO rather than to be on the transactional side of things. I hope we keep some people on board like Tanous and Guttridge. I would definitely consider Guttridge as GM then hiring a president of baseball operations type like an Epstein...Or just go down the Jared Porter route.

    I hope we keep BVW in some capacity, though. I think he’s a really good guy to have for keeping a positive clubhouse culture and to modernize this team a bit.
    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    I just find it funny that so many Met fans wanted Alderson fired when he was here. Now they are embracing his potential return.

    As a Front Office guy (non-GM role) he may be good. I don't know too much about him in those other roles.

    But as an actual GM, he wasn't the best. But then again, look who his owners were. Cashman would NOT have the same success on the Yankees if he had the Wilpons as the owners.

    I know that. I just feel he won't go for him. And if he does, i'll admit I was wrong. Again its my own opinion, not due to some site or blog saying it.

    I wanted him gone and don’t want him as GM. I’m never against keeping the predecessors on board because they’re the ones who know the organization the best. If Alderson is building a FO - which I suspect is the task he’s going to be given, I’m all for it. If he’s going to be GM? Then expect us to trade for Jay Bruce.

    I never wanted him fired. He built an incredible FO, revamped the scouting department and built a team through the draft. At times slow and methodical, but the farm would still be strong and Wheeler would still be a Met.

    Curious who he will hire to be the GM.

    I was just speaking in generalities. It just shows how people have short term memories. I don't mind Sandy in a consultant role. I just don't want too many cooks in the kitchen. If they fire Brodie, get a guy who has a track record of recent success or an up and comer.

    Slow and methodical was an understatement and sure the farm system would have been good but given Sandys track record, offseasons would have been continual bores. FOC is right in the sense that Sandy always wanted to do more with less. That goes back to his days in Oakland.

    I don’t want him as the GM, his approach in off seasons were horrific, horrible at creating a pen, gave contracts to old dudes on their last legs.

    He is the last guy I want as the GM even with money to spend because I believe he was one in hand with Fred as to not to spend too much.

    He would have given Wheeler that deal, just as he did not even bothered with Reyes when he though the money was too much for that player.

    No way Wheeler would still be a Met. Mets would’ve QO’d him and let him walk.

    100%. Sandy didn't like long term deals. Thats why he was right up the Wilpons alley.
