Neither Fred Wilpon nor Sandy Alderson was in a talking mood when the topic of the general manager’s future was raised today in Port St. Lucie.
Wilpon wouldn’t say if he would address the media during spring training while Alderson simply said he has another year on his contract and no control over his future.
According to a published report, Alderson is interested in staying on another two or three years.
Elsewhere in camp:
* The trade market for Ike Davis remains open with both Pittsburgh and Baltimore monitoring Mets’ camp.
* Daisuke Matsuzaka threw 50 pitches in a bullpen session and said he is anxious to face hitters.
* Matt Harvey prefers to rehab in New York with the team during the season and not in Port St. Lucie. According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Mets can’t force him to stay in Florida.
* Assistant general manager Paul DePodesta forecasts a 155 innings limit for Noah Syndergaard.
* Position players are scheduled to report Thursday. Also on Thursday, Mets coaches will attend a meeting with officials of the Cardinals and Marlins on the rule of catchers not being allowed to block the plate.
