The idea that the Mets will just cut Gonzalez on a major league contract is even more funny than the idea of when they sign guys like Valverde they’re actually “competing” for jobs.

Come on folks.

I mean they're not talking with Duda, signing Gonzo and talking up Bruce playing 1B and OF if they were going to give Dom ANY shot at winning the starting job.

The whole point of signing a guy like this in a normal organization is that you can just cut him. The fact that I'm not disagreeing with you says everything you need to know about this organization.

If AG's back is better, he might be useful. But agree w/ the notion that the Mets brass aren't enamored with Dom's skills.

Dom likely starts the year in Vegas.

Depends. If he’s average then yes they won’t cut him. But if he’s awful and Domo is having a decent season in AAA they will definitely cut him.

I would say that is a 100% certainty.

First year manager, we don't bring in a few character guys....we bring in Adrian Gonzalez who tore apart the clubhouse in LA, and Jay Bruce, whose clubhouse demeanor was a mixed bag.

We also duplicate what we already have rather than obtain what we don't. Idiots.

I can 100% confirm Adrian Gonzalez has an awful rep around the league. I'm not losing my mind over this (just because I expect the very worst from them) but his rep is legit.

Dom Smith was one of the few interesting developments to watch. Between the public statements and now this signing, it's pretty clear the Mets are going to make this as hard for him as possible.


Maybe this will help Dom lay off the cheeseburgers.

I just don't get it...for the Wilpons image is everything, the Carig article was embarrassing and Walker, who is exactly the type of person you want around kids, and they go for the characterless Gonzalez.

Where's the "mixed bag" evidence? Not asking pejoratively.

I think it's a silly signing.
I have no reason to doubt that Gonzalez is not a "character" guy.
My only point here is that the character stuff is completely meaningless as regards wins and losses. I wonder how many MLB players have participated in more wins than Gonzalez over the past 10 years?
His teams have won 90 games or more in 7 of the last 8 years.
