The New York Mets officially named Sandy Alderson as the organizations 12th General Manager earlier today at Citi Field.
What I need to say is welcome, good, and get it done! I totally understand that next season will be the beginning of a rebuilding year. Whether or not Sandy can get rid of Carlos Beltran (is that what we actually want?), Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez and Frankie Rodriguez, he can not be viewed as a miracle worker and someone who will make the Mets a championship contender in 2011. Instead, we need you Sandy, all Mets fans need you to start molding the team for 2012. We will not and can not wait longer. This is New York and we are not very patient, if you haven't heard.
We can give you one year because you showing up at Citi Field today means we are finally done with the Omar Minaya era and that changes are coming.
Make these changes count. Make the fans believe. Make the fans hungry. Make the fans happy.
