After a press session that can only be described as unique, this mundane New York Mets day will be remembered as the “Sunday of Sandy.”

To say Sunday was interesting would be an understatement. Not because the New York Mets made a groundbreaking free agent signing, but because their fearless leader, Sandy Alderson, made some interesting comments in regard to the team and upcoming 2018 season.

In addition to informing us of his nonexistent expectations for Michael Conforto to be ready for Opening Day and that Asdrubal Cabrera has “zeroed in” on the third base spot, Alderson left us with some interesting takeaways. Thanks to the New York Post’s Mike Puma, we had a first-hand look at the “Sunday of Sandy.”

This veteran GM knows exactly how to instill organizational confidence in the farm system.

He’s absolutely right. Who needs the National League MVP when you have a player with six career home runs.

I did not realize that we had to distinguish between looking for value and not looking for it. Who are we kidding? The penny counting Mets are always looking for a bargain.

Wait. This makes a lot more sense.

Who wouldn’t be happy with taking the players everybody doesn’t want?

More like fourth priority on an infinite list.

If criticizing someone’s weight is considered being “high” on them, then yes, Alderson is “high” on Smith.
