What is a ML projection for Guillorme?? 250/290/280? Come on. This is going to make us yearn for the bat of Ruben Tejada. Adding Guillorme would be laughably dumb IMO. I would add Jeff McNeil before I add Guillorme.


But Tejada has gotten a lot of chances and was never as good defensively as this guy. If he can do a .650 OPS, someone will play him.

But you don't waste a precious 40 spot on a defensive replacement... a guy you'd only call on when you're top 3 SS options all go on the shelf, at which time you add him to the 40. Considering that the Mets are breaking in the top SS prospect in baseball this season, I don't see the point in adding a fringe guy like that to take up a 40 spot. Ridiculous.

The question you need to ask is will they lose him and I think there's a good chance they would if they leave him unprotected.

I don't think losing a player or 3 in the Rule 5 Draft sets your franchise back a decade.

Moving Conlon to the BP is really perplexing, I wonder what went into that decision? They have so little SP depth is odd.


They're not going to bring him up now. He doesn't need protection and the 40 is pretty tight right now. They'll probably look at him as a lefty bullpen option next spring and he'll get a start early. If he outperforms Smoker, he could be added to the roster early next year.

To be clear I wasn't saying he would/wouldn't stick but it's far from a given. He's not a stone cold lock, that was my only point. Totally disagree on Bashlor by the way. He's been flat out dominant at AA so far and has a mid 90's FB and misses bats.


I could be wrong on Bashlor - a few people said that. I think I'm right on Guillorme being a lock.

There's a few pitchers who could be cut to make room for Bashlor. Bradford, McGowan, Goeddel seem the 3 most likely options. I'm assuming Pill is cut for certain.

Oh, and, sorry for doing this in a game thread. I didn't start the discussion but I kinda went all in.

A defensive replacement type (SS/CF) is a relatively easy guy to carry on the 25.
