@timbhealey

Not sure why they called up Rhame. He has had just one day off since throwing 28 and 27 pitches on consecutive days.

Callaway said the Mets view McNeil exclusively as a second baseman. For now, they need a third baseman.


UM, I HAVE AN IDEA... MOVE ACAB TO 3B...

They are marketing him as a 2B. McNeil will be up when they trade AsCab.

It is a little odd, however, that they called up Rhame who may not be able to give you much today.

They've stuck Smith in LF, McNeil can stand at 3B? Or move AsCab?

I see your points on McNeil. I'd be fine bringing him up. I just think they want to do that when they trade Cabrera and only then. He'd have an everyday spot at that point at a position they want to keep him at. Also might alleviate the sting of the "return" they get for AsCab.

McNeil can't play 3B and ACab can't play 2B... hmmm, let me see if there might be a solution for this conundrum...

Ridiculous. They are either afraid to ask ACab to move to 3B or asked him and he refused. How does playing 3B do anything but improve ACab's market value??

As usual, the Mets figure out the textbook way to gum up a simple roster move. McNeil must be getting annoyed at this point.

Not to mention that McNeil has played 148 games at 3B in the minors (9 this year). I find it ridiculous to think he isn't viable there esp considering that they've had Flo there many times. :lol:

Here's a thought: There is not a chance in hell Dominic Smith is a better OF than Jeff McNeil.

Like I said, I personally wouldn't care. But I will say that if they move him to 3B and he butchers a couple plays just getting re-acclimated, that would not be good for his trade value.

Plus, he can't come up here and not play everyday when he's busy developing at Las Vegas by....not playing for the next 5 days while AAA is on its All Star break.
