Reports indicate that the New York Mets have hired Sandy Alderson to be their GM. Alderson was previously the GM of the Oakland A's from 1983-1997, and was in large part responsible for building both the late 80's dynasty and the early-00's Moneyball A's.
What effect is this likely to have on the Mets farm system and player development? Will they stop fast-tracking players so often? Will they draft differently?
