Wright: Sandy has 'few tricks up his sleeve'

David Wright said he is keeping the faith in the Mets and GM Sandy Alderson despite not much activity in adding players in November.
"It's been a slow winter so far, and I'm confident that we've got something up our sleeve," Wright said on ESPN New York 98.7. "In all reality, I think that the offseason doesn't really necessarily kick off until the winter meetings, and that starts right after Thanksgiving. And everybody knew that the free-agent prices were going to be high this year with the new TV deal and things like that. And obviously the spending is getting up there pretty good. But I think Sandy has got a plan in place and I think he's got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings.
Listen to the complete interview:
"I am one of those crazy Mets fans. Obviously I love this organization. And I'm 100 percent committed to this organization. Sometimes I feel the Mets fans' pain. I experienced it the last few years on a daily basis. But have some faith because, like I said, I fully expect us to be a much better team moving forward. Hopefully that will begin at the winter meetings or shortly after Thanksgiving."
