2B is the easiest position to fill? Huh?

Go look at the mediocrity that a bunch of teams are throwing out there at 2B and tell me that again.

Flores is an above-average bat at that position. He might also be a below-average glove, but sacrificing offense for defense at a few positions is okay (especially if we'll have Rosario at SS and Lagares in CF). I imagine 2B will be by-committee next year between Flores and TJ anyways.


I think people are just remembering how bad Flores is on the left side of the infield, where the Mets have tried to force him in recent years. On the right side he's not that bad, and an .800 OPS from a guy who's improved at the plate each year is pretty solid. If we trade him I guarantee he has a breakout year in the AL with a .850-.900 OPS. He's entering his prime now.


Agree 100%

At SS and 3B, sure, but we're talking Flores vs. Cecchini here, and it's not like Cecchini has shown any ability to play those positions either.

If you're taking Cecchini over anything proven at the MLB level right now (and Wilmer is a proven bat) you're absolutely crazy.
