Not that I was ever a TdA fan, but I long ago wrote off Plaw. That being said, wayyyyy more interested in seeing what he can do for these next 5 weeks than watching TdA get elevated in the lineup by sheer attrition - and continuing to be the exact same guy we swear off every September and then run back to by the time March hits.

Kudos for sticking by your man - he may just be the more interesting of the duo yet.

Yeah, I think they prob worked with him on his GB/FB tendencies and the AAA results do show progress there, so it makes some sense to reward him with some time to see if there could be some carry over of that. I also think he's out of options so it really behooves them to see what he can do now.

Sept schedule is fairly easy. Even this roster should play > .500 for September.


There is very little "ready to go RIGHT NOW" talent on this roster, and the starting pitching (assuming they shut down DeGrom after he hits the 200 IP marker) will be awful. They'll win some games of course, but there's going to be lots of 4 hit shutouts and the starter getting knocked out in the 3rd nights, I think.

I actually gave up on Plaw being an everyday player. :wink: At this point I want to just see if he can be a suitable backup for TdA's (hopeful) replacement next year.

May as well pick up Nori Aoki, who was just released.

Agree except for Cheech at 2B, Flores at 3B, Cabrera in Cleveland.

Can we stop with Flores at third?

I feel like when they insisted on playing him at SS and I was a broken record until virtually everyone including the Mets agreed.

And he might be worse at 3B than he was at SS...

Yea, I feel like we know pretty solidly Flores is not a SS and 3B at this point. He claims he is most comfortable at 2B so lets see him there everyday for the rest of the year. Hopefully he sticks there because Flores as 2B 4x a week, with a spot start at 1B once a week is a good use of limited resources for next year.

I'm all for letting him play some regular 2B to see what happens

But don't we kinda know what we have in Flo? If we're sincere about using this period to give out opportunities to the unknowns, 2B should go to Cheech now.
