What Long Suffering Mets Fans Hope For In Sandy Alderson

Sandy Alderson is a no-nonsense baseball man. He's guided the Oakland A's and has led MLB's efforts to clean up the mess of underage players in the Dominican Republic.

So, it comes as no surprise that the Mets hope that by making him their General Manager, that they can clean up the mess left by Omar Minaya.

While Minaya's tenure as GM didn't always result in seasons being over as they began (they twice imploded in September with coughing up big leads), the feeling among Mets fans is that the team simply didn't give fans a chance right out of the gate.

Alderson's hire changes that, and Mets fans have to look forward to his hire of a manager who will show more fire and demand more of his players than Jerry Manuel did.
