The issue is we don't have a 3rd baseman. Wilmer & TJ can't field there. Bring back Reyes but don't sign a 3rd baseman, Reyes plays there a bunch by default.

If they play Wilmer/TJ at 1st/2nd only, and sign a real 3rd baseman, then Reyes becomes a bench guy. It's not that Terry plays him too much it's that there's no good options at 3rd.

I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

No. Terry plays Reyes by default every game. He is literally leading the team in PAs. There is no logical reason to play Reyes or Cabrera this last month when it behooves the team to see what younger players can do.... and especially so if it's true (what Carig has said) that they are unlikely to bring Reyes back next season. And this is not to mention when he played Reyes during the season over TJR and Flo. Of course part of the blame should go to SA for not calling Rosario up sooner. So this is not all on Terry by any stretch.

But this idea that they could/should save a bunch of $ by opting to go with some pre-Arb options in a few of the bench spots is based only on logic, and we know that logic doesn't usually enter into the decision-making calculus here. So, it is entirely possible they do bring back ACab (at $6.5M), Reyes ($3M?), and Aoki ($6M+ unless they n/t him and renegotiate something) just because #Mets.

I like Wilmer, but if you compare their war over the 2nd half, Reyes has a better war than Wilmer at 3rd.

Bottom line, if we don't sign a 3rd baseman and do keep Reyes, our manager next year will have the choice of Reyes or guy who hits bit can't field. If the choice is Reyes or Wilmer at 3rd, the manager plays Reyes cause we don't have a 3rd baseman. So, I'll see your NO and raise you a YES.

Maybe the solution is Ascaboodle at 3rd. He's not looked bad there. Wilmer at 1st/2nd, TJ off the bench. That leaves 1 spot open. I'm not advocating we go Reyes/Ascab. But I am saying that not having a 3rd baseman leads to those two getting increased playing time. That's pretty basic. Unless we get a manager who lets the guy who can hit but not field start 6 days a week.
