Mets GM Alderson collapses at news conference

NEW YORK (AP) — Mets general manager Sandy Alderson collapsed briefly while talking with reporters during a news conference to announce an extension for manager Terry Collins but was able to walk away. Alderson was speaking with reporters Wednesday in the Citi Field interview room when he stopped in mid-sentence and he began to fall. People grabbed him before he landed on the riser.

The 67-year-old was down briefly, then assisted to his feet and into a chair.

"So where were we?" he joked with a smile before he walked away with other team officials.
