Mets Notes: Bourn, Wilson, Hairston, Upton

Earlier today, Mets GM Sandy Alderson joined Jim Bowden and Jim Duquette on SiriusXM's MLB Network Radio.  Here's a look at some highlights with all links going to Bowden's Twitter..

  • The GM said that he would be very reluctant to give up a first-round pick to sign Michael Bourn, but Bowden (on Twitter) got the impression that they are considering the possibility because of the strength of their farm system.  The Mets have interest in Bourn and the player's union could potentially support them if they try and argue that their No. 11 pick should be protected from compensation.
  • Alderson said that the club may go back and see Brian Wilson pitch again in a few days (Twitter link).  The last time they saw the former Giants closer it was early on in his process.  It has been said that the Mets would jump at the chance to sign Wilson to a minor league deal, but that seems unlikely.
  • Alderson implied that if the trade of Justin Upton to the Braves had happened before Scott Hairston's signing with the Cubs, the club may have had a chance to grab Hairston (Twitter link).  Meanwhile, the GM says that he is still looking for ways to upgrade the outfield.
