I'm really having trouble going into next season with Cecchini on the 40-man roster...

Why?

Guys that should be off the 40-

Reinheimer, Reyes, Jackson, Evans, Lobaton, Mesoraco, TDA, Ramos, Montero, Gagnon, Conlon, Peterson, Blevins... man this team has more dead weight than even other past bad Mets teams.

Also keep in mind they have 50 players on the 40 man roster (if you want to count Mejia) as well, because of all the 60 Day DL guys. I'm not denying the dead weight, but that's an obvious reason why it's so glaring right now.

He's not good and there dozens of other players you can get on minor league deals that can fill whatever minor role he might play in a given MLB season.

At the risk of offending anyone, picking on Cheech as a (or the) guy who needs to be banished from this roster seems weird.... esp given how much dead weight there is on the 40. Cheech had an unfortunate busted season bc of a fluke injury (fouling a ball off his foot). Moreover, given how the org more or less just stumbled onto its best player who happened to be a 26 rookie, it seems especially harsh to toss a guy like Cheech aside who could actually add value as a UT player going forward... and a guy who still has a minor league option remaining (at least one more iirc).

And he hits from the right side, a point I'm going to repeat a lot over the winter. This team could actually be competitive next year if they figure out a strategy of how to deal with LHed pitching (and ironically also how to obtain some good LHed pitching, but I digress). Cheech is potentially worth hanging onto... and certainly with no urgency over 40 man spots.

Cheech has gotten almost no opportunity...less than Dom even...to show anything.

I absolutely would love to see him in the mix.

Just to be clear, my issue is with guaranteeing him Reyes' spot, not with having him in the mix and giving him an opportunity to play himself into a good chunk of PAs.

I haven’t seen his name mentioned but what’s the status of TJ Rivera? I know he had a setback but if he’s healthy I’d bet we’d see him over Cheech

Well no knock on DW... but technically he's deadweight on the 40 as well nor does it include a take or leave guy like Callahan/Rhame

Since he's not retiring, does that mean he has to remain on the 40 man indefinitely, or is the physically unable to perform not a thing?
