Sandy Alderson quotes

Sep 22 2017

The injuries are not just an objective fact; there are underlying causes and issues that we've wanted to and have examined in connection with those injuries. It's not going to happen just at the end of the season. It's been an ongoing review.feedback

Sep 06 2017

Well, we took into account the fact that he only threw 70 pitches the other day. We don't think there's a significant medical risk to him at this point. And he wants to get back on the mound.feedback

Sep 05 2017

We expect to be a competitive team next year. I know that's going to depend a lot on the health of our pitching staff, particularly our starting pitching.feedback

Sep 05 2017

It was Matt's idea, and the manager and pitching coach endorsed it. So I was O.K. with it.feedback

He's pleased he's going to be with a contender for the final month and a half. I think it would be foolish for me to say it doesn't matter, but at the same time, it is prohibitive? No.feedback

Jul 15 2017

Yes, I think that is a possibility, only because you never quite know what's going to be presented. But I don't think enough would be presented for us to bite on that. I would say that kind of trade is exceedingly unlikely.feedback

Jul 15 2017

Obviously, you're always looking to see what transpires over the next seven to 10 days, but I think we're at the point in the season where things would have to go exceedingly well for us to realistically change direction. We need to see where we are at the end of the homestand. We'll know it when we see it.feedback

Jul 14 2017

Never crossed my mind until about 10 days ago when somebody said it was likely to happen. I don't foresee that kind of scenario.feedback

Jul 07 2017

We made a strong effort to re-sign Bartolo. But he decided to go elsewhere.feedback

Jul 04 2017

It's not just water. It's the stretching. It's the running. It's the variety of pregame aspects of his routine that have changed. They are things that he needs to be doing that he's now doing. Whether that will have an impact or not, we'll find out. But it should be expected to be a positive.feedback

Jul 01 2017

Tomorrow's Game Number 81, right? So we win today and tomorrow and we'll be three games under .500. Then we go 12 games over in the second half, and that gets us to 87 wins. It can be done. You never know.feedback

Jun 30 2017

There's really nobody ahead of us that we can't catch, other than Washington, and Washington we may catch as well. Let's see where it goes in the next 10 days or two weeks.feedback

Jun 29 2017

You never have enough pitching and we're certainly evidence of that right now.feedback

Jun 25 2017

It's not like he's tearing up the league, but at the same time all of the indications are positive in terms of various things we look at -- chase rates and exit velocity. The bottom line is the average isn't there, but he's improving.feedback

Jun 25 2017

But at the same time, what he's done there – given all the circumstances – justified the promotion.feedback

Jun 25 2017

Clearly, it's a step up. I certainly think he can handle it.feedback

Jun 25 2017

This is not earth-shattering news. We're promoting Tim Tebow today to St. Lucie.feedback

Jun 24 2017

I don't want to whitewash this. We haven't played very well. We need to play better. If we don't, we have to be prepared to recognize that.feedback

Jun 24 2017

We're just going to have to wait and see. But in the meantime, the best things our players can do is play well.feedback

Jun 23 2017

For this team, we think he's more valuable to us as a middle infielder who conceivably, at some point, can play third base. I happen to think that's his value going forward for the rest of his career. He may not agree with me on that score.feedback

Jun 23 2017

I would be very surprised if issues of this sort didn't arise over the past 10 days to two weeks. In some ways, getting it out on the table is healthy.feedback

Jun 23 2017

That's a real bad combination.feedback

Jun 21 2017

May 29 2017

I'm happy with the job Terry has done under the circumstances. Nobody is happy with the won-lost record. There are reasons for the record that have nothing to do with Terry.feedback

May 29 2017

We're very aware of both the ineffectiveness of the pen over the last period of time as well as its extensive use. It's a function of our starting pitching. It's a function of the closeness of many of our games . . . Those are all concerns of ours. I think those are critical issues for us to continue to think about.feedback

May 29 2017

I'm happy with the job that Terry has done under the circumstances.feedback

May 29 2017

All I can say is nobody has talked to me about that. So I would hope in the future that when people write about my views about Terry that they'll actually ask me about my views. End of quote.feedback

May 25 2017

Injuries are injuries. They're unpredictable, in terms of their severity and scope and amount of time of recovery. And in the past what we've attempted to do is to give the most current information. And now what we're trying to do is provide information. But we think less is more. That's just an organizational decision that we've made.feedback

May 19 2017

Starting-wise, we're not getting deep into games. As a result, the bullpen, I think, is getting overworked a bit.feedback

May 19 2017

Well, we're obviously not where we'd like to be.feedback

May 19 2017

There are no current plans to promote either one of them unless one of them can pitch, in which case, we might reconsider. That's not to say that one or the other of those players wouldn't be helpful in some way, but we don't see that as a panacea, and we don't see it necessarily as the right time in the overall sense of where we are, and who we have currently and what we're trying to do.feedback

May 14 2017

I think it would be foolish for us to say that the starting pitching is going to have to go deeper. It would be nice if it goes deeper. I don't think we can count on that consistently over time.feedback

May 13 2017

I'm very hopeful that he'll be back on track. The one thing I hope is that he doesn't get caught up in his own perfectionism. He doesn't need to be perfect tonight. He just needs to be as good as he can be at this point in time.feedback

May 12 2017

It's possible he'll be back by the end of the year. It's possible he won't. We just don't know at this point.feedback

May 06 2017

Realistically, it's going to take a while. We don't know when he's going to be back. It's going to be much later in the season.feedback

May 01 2017

It was my decision for Noah to pitch with input with [a] variety of different sources. The MRI was not dismissed out of hand, and we had to evaluate the situation. ... From the overall standpoint, it is not to say things couldn't have been done differently. From my standpoint, I made the decision. I think it's going to be a considerable amount of time. The doctor has said there wasn't any connection, there isn't any connection, between what happened and a possible bicep injury. That's all I can go on.feedback

Apr 30 2017

The preliminary diagnosis is possible lat strain, which may or may not be related to his previous complaint, which was in the biceps. So we'll just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.feedback

Apr 30 2017

It's the ninth inning. You're three outs away. I know how I react emotionally in the seventh, eighth, versus the ninth inning.feedback

Apr 29 2017

I can't strap him down and throw him in the tube.feedback

Mar 30 2017

I never say, World Series or bust,' simply because so much can happen out of one's control. Things have to go right. From that standpoint, you try to be more realistic about what's within our control. I'm very optimistic about the season. I'm not blind to some of the things that we have to continue to improve, but optimistic.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Sending him to a full season club is what we hoped to be able to do. And based on what he's done in spring training, and his whole body of work since last fall, we feel comfortable with him going to Columbia.feedback

Mar 10 2017

It just worked out that way, as a result of the marketplace, our assessment of the players, the importance of continuity and the success some of the players have had in New York. And a lot of it had to do with the players' desire to come back. It wasn't as if it was a one-way proposition. It's unusual in the sense that essentially the same roster is coming back. But on the other hand, we like our team. I think there's a lot of room for improvement, especially with a return to health of some of our pitchers and position players.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I'm not sure we have the scientific, proprietary solution to that problem. I'm not sure that anybody does. We're all working toward a solution but it's largely trial and error. This year, what we've done with respect to the starting staff is we have backed them off during the spring …. The way in which we're building pitchers up to the end of spring training has been changed and lengthened. We don't have all the solutions. We're looking for the sweet spot. Everybody is.feedback

Dec 07 2016

Things are picking up a little bit.feedback

Dec 06 2016

That's where the market seems to be headed.feedback

Nov 07 2016

The one aspect of the collective bargaining agreement that may not be resolved any time soon is this question of draft-choice compensation, which is probably what could change the market one way or the other. I don't think the new rules are going to get more onerous to the players, and it's not clear whether they'll be less onerous for clubs.feedback

Oct 04 2016

We want Tim to play in more games to continue developing his skills on the field while facing advanced competition.feedback

Sep 08 2016

While I and the organization I think are mindful of the novel nature of this situation, this decision was strictly driven by baseball.feedback

Sep 08 2016

This was not something that was driven by marketing considerations or anything of the sort. We are extremely intrigued with the potential that Tim has. He has demonstrated over his athletic career that he is a tremendous athlete, has great character, a competitive spirit. And aside from the age, this is a classic player development opportunity for us.feedback

Sep 08 2016

This is a strictly stand-alone proposition, and there were no other considerations taken into account in connection with any other player.feedback

Sep 08 2016

I'm not worried about it, practically speaking. Perception is something different.feedback
