THE METS ARE NOT GIVING UP
Thu, 14 Jul 2011 01:41 PM EDT

Many see the New York Mets trade of their player Francisco Rodriguez as being the first sign of a potential 2011 sale. But Sandy Alderson the general manager for the Mets say that is not really the case. Basketball odds

Alderson speaking about this yesterday said “From my standpoint this certainly does not signify a change in direction from our continuing attempt to win games this season,” “One could view this as a slight impediment. But, at the same time, it really should not signal any significant change in direction.”

The Mets are now 46-45 of 11 games behind the Phillies in the NL East and are 7 ½ behind Atlanta in a rather wild card race. Basketball lines This is going to be the first big trade for Alderson since she took over the Mets during the off season and there has now been lots of speculation that there will be other moves after the break with their All Star Carlos Beltran as well as Jose Reyes moving towards free agency in the coming season. While the manager has maintained that the Todriguez trade was independent of others he said “in a delicate part of the season where wins and losses might dictate what we do.” However the GM reinforced “I certainly would not draw any conclusions from this transaction.”

This trade does supply the Mets with some fresh payroll flexibility going into 2012. Rodriguez his now in the final season of the deal which guarantees a $37 million contract. He also has vesting options of $17.5 million which will kick in after 55 games later in 2012.

The vesting of the contract could have the potential to cripple the payroll of the Mets in an attempt to resign the Reyes next season but instead it will be off the books. Alderson has indicated that the Mets have sent a big portion of the $3.5 million buyout and the remaining to Rodriguez’s salary which is around $5 million. Basketball spreads

Alderson said “I think clearly we now can look forward to in 2012 to considerably more payroll flexibility,” “That flexibility to allocate our resources will be very important to us (going into) next season.”

Speaking of Beltran who will now be a free agent in the end of the season Alderson said “a lot of interest” has been expressed by other teams but “we have not pursued that interest to any great length at this point.”
