Yes. How could he not have?


Isn't the whole point of signing a Ty Kelly to have him ride the bus in ST?

There was never a reason to sign Kelly. None. That's what Cecchini and Reynolds were here for.

This just convinced me this was the right move.

As to the comment about Kelly ranking 10th last offseason - fairly confident he could slot right in there again now, in the Tomas Nido/Reliever range.

Wow. When I look at other teams minor league transactions I see some players that are some what interesting. Not the Mets, now we are bringing back Minor league free agents that were with us and were pretty bad.

Why are the Mets so reluctant to hand spots over to Nimmo and Cecchini? Like...

#1 Have you actually seen Cecchini swing a bat?

#2 Ty Kelly was not signed to block Cecchini's path to mediocrity.

We have "somewhat" of an idea on what they think of Nimmo (probably as a cheap useful major leaguer)


Yet no idea what they think of Cheech.......

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?

We know what they think of Cheech, that he isn't a ML player. He's been passed over time and again and not even considered to ever fill a role at the ML level. Ty Kelly's not keeping Cheech from a roster spot.
