Plawecki will take over #1 catcher role by end of April.


I've always liked his swing, I think he got more confidence at the end of last year. I definitely think he can hit .280 with a little pop in the ML and these days that automatically makes you a good hitting catcher.


Were there any days when that wasn't a good hitting catcher?

I'm bumping up my Cheech HR over/under for 2018 to 120.5.

He wants to show all those people who bumped him below #20 on the rankings. (And he's still ROY eligible).

Remember, the most important offseason acquisition was a dedication to health and fitness (by bringing in a figurehead, firing a scapegoat, and otherwise doubling down on Mike Barwis...but talking about the subject A LOT).

Whoops.

Add DeGrom and Cespedes to the walking wounded.

deGrom and Cespedes downplay their injuries, as the previous injured group did as well.

So maybe this is the plan: play UP every injury then have the player deny anything is wrong, rather than the opposite approach which appeared to previously be the org philosophy????

Mets announced their coaches for the short-season teams.

Marlon Anderson will be the Cyclones hitting coach.

Sean Ratliff will manage Kingsport. Delwyn Young will be the hitting coach.

Yucarybert De La Cruz, just 27, will manage the DSL Mets2 after serving as the 1B coach last year. Old friend Gilbert Gomez will be his hitting coach.

Whats the connection with Delwyn Young I wonder. Interesting. Remember him as a player.
