No one should feel they have to explain their liking for Guillorme. His defense is magnificent and while many come along who are very good defenders, Guillorme is a cut above the rest. And, it is safe to say, while he lacks home run power, he looks strong and very capable of becoming an acceptable hitter. He certainly made strides in 2017 and we can expect that to continue.

I was disappointed that Jannis and Uceta were not protected. The fact that the roster is pretty much full at this moment indicates that the Mets expect to be active in trading.

If we lose one of them, questions like "why Bradford over so and so" or "why Reynolds over so and so", will inevitably arise. But we do have an abundance of pitchers and fewer utility players, so I'm not sure Reynolds is the right comp.

I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping we don't lose either one. I'm thinking it's about 50/50 and up that we come out unscathed. Will depend a lot on the players around the league left unprotected.

They do want our guys they just don't wan't to trade for them. If they can get a guy like Jannis or Uceta for free, other teams might pounce. But truthfully other teams might be more focused on the Yankees hard throwers left un-protected right now than Uceta. It makes no sense to me that the Mets made trading for relievers a priority during the season and then they go and leave one of their best minor league relievers Uceta unprotected.

22, hit well in AA and can play all OF positions. Surely the type of guy you want but I think he's gone before our pick.

He says Tocci's current hit tool is better than Juan Lagares (just for context).

What was that in response to? It sounds odd but maybe it makes a bit of sense in relation to what he replied too.
