Sandy Alderson is not expected to have more financial flexibility with the 2013 payroll.


WASHINGTON -- The Mets' payroll, which dropped an historic amount last offseason, to roughly $90 million, is unlikely to increase for 2013, a baseball source told ESPNNewYork.com.

"They may have $10 million to $15 million max to spend -- if Sandy [Alderson] is lucky," the source said. "The Mets' internal conversations have been no increase in payroll next year -- and may be another reduction, which would be a disaster."
