  1. I prefer: Sandy Alderson and his minions

  2. Sandy and the demolishion crew. wipe out the underdesirable over inflated contracts that was left by Omar Minaya.

  3. Is Sandy considered the Mets Obi Won .

  4. I call him Captain A. I see him as the super hero captain america. Marine, no nonsense, fighting evil. I see him in the captain america uniform with the A on his mask standing for Alderson.

  5. The Wilpons still own the team, right? So what does it matter who the GM is? Different face, same crap. The shimmer from this most recent brand overhaul will fade more quickly than the last one.

  6. How about “Patrick Flood’s Jerk Off Material”?

    • Patrick Flood

      How about “Patrick Flood and the Really Mean Internet Commenter”?

      • By gushing that Sandy A. knows all, it follows that everyone else is some sort of idiot. Sandy has never distinguished himself as any sort of genius. He’s actually been fairly mediocre outside of one steroid fueled championship. The other two geeks have been outright failures in other organizations. Still, you want us to believe all others are idiots. Who is being mean now?

      • Patrick Flood

        Okay, this post here is a list of all the nicknames various news sources have used for Sandy Alderson and members of the Mets’ front office. As such, this particular post is neither pro-or-anti Alderson — it’s just a list of nicknames other places have used. A bunch of them happen to be positive, yeah, but a decent number are sarcastic as well. So I assure you that any “gushing” on my part that you seem to think you see here has been read into this post by you.

        Also, the Oakland A’s went 1200-1164 (.508%) in 15 seasons under Alderson, going to three World Series and four ALCS. That doesn’t seem all that mediocre to me.

        But . . . if you want to say Sandy Alderson is a terrible GM anyway, cool, whatever, go ahead. But please keep it civil, and please do it on a more related post.

      • 36 games over .500 in 15 seasons? Sounds pretty weak to me. What did he do in S.D.? NOTHING ! I watched him penny pinch the Padres right out of contention.I love what he’s done so far with the Mets, but I’m not sold on him yet.

      • Agreed. If barely over .500 isn’t “mediocre” then I am curious what your definition of the term might be.

        Though, you are a Mets fan so you may deem .500 as spectacular.

        Under .500 seems to be defined as an accomplishment by the drooling saberdoodles who can’t get enough of the “great job” done by King Sandy and the Aldertwins.

      • Once again, three WS appearances and four in the ALCS are not mediocre.

        What standard are you using?

      • “By gushing that Sandy A. knows it all, it follows that everyone else is some sort of idiot.”

        You know nothing about logic; no, it does not follow. You’re setting up a straw man.

        And where was Patrick gushing about anything? Are you sure you’re commenting in the correct column?

  7. I definitely prefer the Nerd Herd.

  8. iz

    All the fired X-GMS trying to win without money and without roids.

  9. Wow. Where did all the mongos come from? Metsmerized?

    Sheesh
