Controversial Quotes From Sandy Alderson's Blogger Conference Call

Last night, the Mets held a conference call between GM Sandy Alderson and a group of bloggers. You may have seen the duplicate tweets on your timelines last night as bloggers each battled to be the first to quote the GM on Twitter.

While most bloggers accounts match up I noticed a disturbing trend emerging. It seems that many of the bloggers were completely ignoring some of the more bizarre, controversial, or downright inflammatory things that Sandy was saying.  If you read other accounts it's almost like he didn't say any of these things. Clearly, the Mets collective of chosen bloggers is covering for the GM with the hopes of keeping their access and all the free steak sandwiches that come with it.

For Norm Charlton & Others Mets Bullpen Could Be Shot At Return To The Bigs

After a rather stagnant off-season highlighted only by the trade of Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey to Toronto for several top prospects the Mets gobbled up veteran relief pitchers for the 2013 staff.

LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Atchison, Pedro Feliciano, and Brandon Lyon have been signed and will have the chance to make the squad.

But the Alderson administration did not stop there. Believing that there is power in numbers  - as long as those numbers are not on major league contracts - the Mets also offered minor league deals to the following players, all of whom have major league experience.

Mike Piazza: Master Of Karate

"You break my bat. Now I break you like I break Fisk's record."

Remember that time Mike Piazza squared off against Roger Clemens in a Bloodsport style Kumite deathmatch? Me neither, but according to excerpts from Piazza's new book it almost happened. In his book, Piazza not only admits to taking karate lessons in anticipation of a brawl with the Yankees pitcher, but even takes a moment to discuss fight strategy.
