In their ongoing effort to develop a better level of communication with fans, Mets GM Sandy Alderson sent out an e-mail update today to fans, detailing a current status update on all things Metropolitans, including this on this weeks organizational meetings in port St. Lucie, FL and the direction for new manager Terry Collins and his staff:
“Yesterday, we wrapped up two days of meetings in Port St. Lucie where we went over organizational philosophy and how to implement it throughout the major and minor leagues. It was also the first opportunity for Terry Collins and his staff to sit down and discuss the mechanics of Spring Training and determine how they will emphasize fundamentals, mental and physical preparation and hard work. As Terry has said, the driving force will be playing the game the right way, which will lead to more wins.
Over the past two months, we have followed our plan of filling out our roster with reasonably priced players who have significant upside potential. As I have said before, our payroll – which will be among the highest in baseball – gives us limited flexibility, but we do have money to spend. We have acquired players who we think can thrive at Citi Field and complement our existing group of players.”
