Don’t we love this all this Spring Training hype? On Sunday Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters that the team is “all in” this season. Let’s Go.

I’m so ready for the season to start already, aren’t you?

After the Mets finished their first full-squad workout on Sunday, Alderson summed everything up for us in just four words:

"“We’re all in here.”"

Good. That’s what I like to hear.

Just last week I wrote about how Alderson was looking forward to the 2017 season. In fact, he even said that he wants a World Series. Now he’s just telling us that he sees the team wants one as well. Those four words are perfect words to hear after the first full-squad workout (probably only second to hearing the words “everyone is healthy” to be honest).

Alderson elaborated on the above by also stating the following:

"“I think it’s a credit to our ownership that our payroll is as high as it is now, given where we have been as recently as two years ago and where our budget might have been. But we’ve had the fortune here recently of being able to take advantage of opportunities or not have to make moves on the basis of payroll. From that standpoint, I think we should all be pleased.”"

Well yes, we’re all please with the signing of Yoenis Cespedes for instance. In fact, speaking of the Lion King himself, on Saturday he told reporters that he believes the Mets have “a great chance” of winning a World Series.

There you have it. The Mets GM telling us that the team will give it their all, and the biggest bat in the lineup telling us that he thinks it’ll happen. Now, let’s see this in action. Let’s stay healthy, get to the World Series, and win it.
