    Alderson needs to stop treating New York Mets like a small-market team

    Sandy Alderson deserves some credit for spending money -- signing Neil Walker, Asdrubal Cabrera and other high-profile players -- last offseason, but he still has the reputation for treating the New York Mets like a small-market team.
