Mets GM 90 Wins Isnt A Guarantee But A Goal - RealGM Wiretap
Sandy Alderson would like to see the New York Mets win 90 games this season , but he clarified earlier remarks about the lofty win total.

The Mets have produced five straight losing seasons and have a roughly $89 million payroll.

Alderson insisted a tangible win total was important.

"Was I surprised by the skepticism? Am I concern about the optics? No," Alderson said. "It's time for us to get better. What you can measure, you can improve. I can't really measure competitiveness.

"You have to understand the context within which the statement was made and the purpose behind it if the skepticism is, 'How are they going to win 90 games?' It wasn't a guarantee. It wasn't a prediction. It was a challenge, OK? A challenge to all of us internally: How do we get there?"

Machado Faced Risk Without Undergoing Knee Surgery - RealGM Wiretap

The Baltimore Orioles had hoped that Manny Machado would avoid surgery on his left knee , but it became obvious that without a procedure he faced a greater risk of injuring the knee again in the future.

Machado will undergo reconstructive surgery to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee on Monday.

The recovery time for the surgery is four to six months. Spring training is already four months away.

"I think he will be fine," Buck Showalter said. "It was probably something that was going to have to be done at some point, and the more you talk to the experts who have done these surgeries, there's a high percentage that he's going to [injure] it again sometime next year. … When you take in all the information, it's really a no brainer."

Kawasaki Making Case For Spot When Reyes Returns - RealGM Wiretap

The Blue Jays haven't decided what they'll do with Munenori Kawasaki when Jose Reyes returns from his ankle injury.

Kawasaki took over at shortstop when Reyes went down in early April and has performed well. Reyes is expected to return some time in late June.

"That's all premature until Reyes comes back, but I know one thing, he has played very well for us ," John Gibbons said. "When the time comes, we'd definitely like to keep him, that's for sure. But we don't know when Reyes is coming back, either."

Kawasaki entered play on Monday night with a .247 average, a .345 on-base percentage and five extra-base hits in 37 games this season.

"Everything he does , he does right," Gibbons said. "It's like anybody else, you don't always get the results you want, but he approaches it the right way. He does everything right, whether it's baserunning or fundamentals , relay throws, hitting in the right spot at the right time, he does all of those things."

Uptons Make History With Back To Back HRs - RealGM Wiretap

B.J. and Justin Upton hit back-to-back home runs for the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night, marking just the second time in Major League history that a pair of brothers have homered in consecutive at-bats.

Pittsburgh's Lloyd and Paul Waner accomplished the feat on Sept. 15, 1938.

It was the 27th time in Major League history that brothers homered in the same game.

The Uptons have homered in the same game three times this season.
