Is it the end of story? Not sure it is.

: ) Ok, but not from me. This thread, beyond being objectively crazy (writing off a guy's career after 4 games) has propelled me into an existential crisis wherein I found myself last night both rooting for and against for Dom simultaneously last night. What hath I wrought? I'm a monster.


No thoughts on David Wright or his successor? The viability of a Nimmo/Lagares platoon? :)

Pouliot:
Quote:
- The Mets were able to deal Jay Bruce to open up a spot for Dominic Smith at first base and followed that up by sending Neil Walker to Milwaukee. They still could trade Curtis Granderson, which would give them more of an opportunity to take a look at former first-round pick Brandon Nimmo in the outfield. Nimmo elevated his stock by hitting .352/.423/.541 in 392 at-bats in his Triple-A debut last year, but that’s the only time in six minor league seasons that he’s topped an .800 OPS. Nimmo is adequate in center, but he’s not a big speedster and it doesn’t look like he’ll turn into more than 15-homer guy in the majors. He’d seem to profile best as a fourth outfielder. Still, if he does show something the last six weeks, maybe the Mets could afford to stay out of the bidding for center fielders and go with some combination of Nimmo and Juan Lagares next year.

That may be workable, but in conjunction with that I'd like to see for certain a real pursuit of Moustakas, with Flores moved to 2B. I'd say upgrade at catcher but I'm not sure there's much available (unless you believe in the reincarnation of Lucroy).

So Smith is bailing a little bit, and already has a bit of an open stance.

Did he do that in Vegas? Or is this more of a nervous/not comfortable thing?
