I guess Xorge Carrillo was asking for too much money.

Is he still with the Rays or did they release him?

Monell's been lousy in MLB but he's put up solid numbers in Vegas.

That's fair. I think they should make a few calls just in case, but nothing wrong with trying to make due with what they have if it's just a few weeks.

I hope they make some calls and explore their options. They needed a catcher even when Plawecki was healthy.

Lobaton should be ok, I’d think. He’s pretty good defensively, isn’t he? That’s pretty much all the Mets need from 2.

The numbers say he's average defensively (which probably means he's better than Plawnaud).

I thought he had a few solid ABs last night.

He hit a triple in his first AB. This isn't exactly a hot take.

I mean he went 3-2 and saw 8 pitches those first 2 ABs against Davies even if he eventually K'd that 2nd AB. Appeared very focused. So I mean he'll get some results if he maintains a solid process. For a temporary solution he looks fine.

I think Lobo-Nido platoon is fine for now. Plaw-aton will be sufficient for this team.

I think there's a good chance Plaw flops (again) and they're looking for someone come July, but you're generally going to be looking for something come July.

Given the way the team is constructed, I'm guessing our needs will be starting pitching, catcher, and lefty relief. We should be covered in the infield between Reyes, Wilmer, Dom, and possibly David Thompson, while we're already carrying five potential outfield starters on the roster. The pen is in good shape currently, and there's arguably more help on the way there than in any other area, given all the guys that were picked up in trades last year and how quickly bullpen arms can move.

Point being, if catcher ends up being where we need to upgrade, that's not a problem.
