Mets president Sandy Alderson was scheduled to speak with 400 employees today about "vision, mission and values." He postponed that to instead talk about what happened with Jared Porter. Alderson: "When I came here, my goal was to put a good team on the field and change the culture. And we're not gonna be able to do that — change the culture — unless we have a very strict and well-understood approach to these kinds of situations. They're not gonna be tolerated."

CEO Christopher Johnson and GM Joe Douglas, in statements, praise Robert Saleh for his leadership and communication skills. Lots of culture talk, too, continuing a theme. Johnson says Saleh "will partner with Joe," but he doesn't spell out if the reporting structure has changed. Douglas said Saleh's "vision for this team aligns with what we have been working to establish here the last two years." Personally, I'd hit the "delete" button on the last two years.
