Sandy Alderson doesn’t seem to know Sandy Alderson’s plan is bad defense

I still think Mets are mis-built playing Dom in LF instead of 1B (and of course trading One Dimensional Player Vulgar Pete Alonso.  One of the years the Mets will stop playing cowboy defense.  The only one who was good at that was Davey Johnson.

Anyway, why is Sandy involved.  What happened to Acting Regional General Manager Z. Michael Scott?  This make it sound like Sandy is really running things.  That can’t be true, c an it?

New York Mets president Sandy Alderson says that he is emphasizing offense over defense but that Kevin Pillar and Albert Almora Jr. were brought in to help with their gloves.

“While some of our players aren’t defensive geniuses, we think that the overall blend that we have is pretty good,” Alderson said during an interview on the ESPN telecast of Thursday’s 8-4 win over Washington in Port St. Lucie, Florida. (via ESPN)
