Alderson's 2012 Plan: Restocking the farm?

As I've said before I believe Sandy Alderson is the right guy to set our beloved Mets on the right path to being respectable again. Unlike some people (cough) Greg Pomes (cough) I realize that with the state of the franchise as it is, it will not be a quick fix overnight and will take some time. While many of us realize that alot of things would have to go right for us and alot to go wrong for our enemies for us to enter the playoffs, our management remains optimistic but this is just standard management doublespeak. However I believe that Alderson and rest of the front office does have a plan in place for 2012.

Most of us here are familiar with the concept of "Buy low, sell high" usually this relates to those who either play the stock or real estate markets. Alderson has stated that that no one is off the table as far as being traded goes. With that statement, the plan is to restock our farm system. While granted is not as bad as the media makes it out to be but nonetheless does need some fixing. Many complained that addressing only the bullpen this past off-season is not going to help the team but one can only do so much when your owner can't give you clear answers. Alderson looks like to be taking a buy low, sell high approach to the 2012 team. Getting alot of low cost arms in hopes they perform well by the trade deadline in order to flip them for some good farm hands. Of course it's not just the arms this season, I'm sure Alderson would have no problems flipping Bay or Santana for some more good farm pieces not just avoiding contract albatrosses like he did in the K-Rod trade. While some of us don't want to wait while our enemies continue to win divisions and make the post season I believe that this plan will work out for the team in the long term.
