Mets fans are entitled to wonder if this whole thing was a diversion intended to make the Mets look like real players in the free-agent market, when they’re not. On the other hand, Sandy Alderson would seem to be above such shenanigans, so who knows what this was really about.In the end, though, the Mets will now proceed with an outfield so lacking in everyday players that Alderson has cracked jokes about it. Perhaps there are more jokes to come, which isn’t such a bad thing. If you’re going to lose, you might as well laugh.
