Get a real 2B/3B in addition and I'll be happy.


Carig put it best:

@MarcCarig
Same utilityman agreement as last season, when he made 561 plate appearances, the most on the Mets.


Carig is even more confused than I thought. Injuries+Fire Sale+Cecchini's little league bat lead to a chunk of those plate appearances.

“Worst move in mets history bringing back reyes he was the biggest reason for the collapses of 2007 and 2008 hit 200 during both collapses team lacked focus and urgency he also destroyed the Jays and the 2017 mets Jays get rid of him and go to the alcs 2 years in a row.”

Could this be the move that finally ends Matt Reynold's long residency on the 40 man roster?

May I ask why this doesn't bother you? Except for Swardzyk they have reassembled the same 70 win team from last year and just praying for health. Meet the new year. Same as the old year.


I'm not sure what they could have done that would have allowed for the team's success to be independent of the rotation's health and performance. Free agent market was - and is - kind of putrid and the farm system appears to have been sown with salt.

Reyes doesn't block anyone who was a young guy they had some investment in.

If it were up to me, the infield would have been Smith, Wilmer/Cecchini, Rosario and Cabrera/Frazier. They were never going to give Cecchini or Wilmer a chance.

I'm more bothered they have blocked Nimmo and Dom.

Now shock us. Trade AsCab in a Harrison deal. Sign Fraser. Let Reyes and Flores be the backups.

The main culprits for those collapses where the backend of the rotation and the bullpen.


People have blamed Beltran and Delgado.


People have blamed Willie and Jerry.


People have blamed Wright and Reyes.


But the main culprits for those collapses where the backend of the rotation and the bullpen.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

José Reyes had -26 last season. That's really, really, really bad

Both Reyes and Cabrera look like better 3B than 2B.
