Seems like Callaway had an epiphany last night:

@TimBritton
He has been asked this. He has said McNeil can't play every day after missing so much time in 2016-2017, and that Guillorme is being groomed for a utility role, so they'd prefer to use him in one now.

You don't have to agree with that reasoning, but that's what his is.



Even the utility guys get to start once in awhile at their best defensive positions

Oh great, Callaway talking about 2019 pretty much confirms someone had a talk with him regarding his return and that he doesn't have to manage for his job.

Barf, just looked at Rosario's season splits

.172/.226/.224 since the ASB. Just freaking brutal.

It's only been 15 games but he's been consistently bad all year. Has never really shown that he's grown as a player. You think he and Reyes ever talk the game of baseball and strategy in all their chumming around? Neither seem like students of the game.

Entirely possible they told him this so that he would stop playing the veterans whom he thought would help lift his W/L record.

Perhaps he shouldn't be talking to someone hitting a buck ninety.

Players go through rough patches. That also coincides with him leading off more.

His approach has definitely improved, and he's chasing less pitches out of the strike zone (he still goes up and out of the zone while defending with two strikes).

I haven't looked at metrics to confirm this, but he appears more comfortable in the field, and he is starting to get more aggressive on the bases.

I'm skeptical about his ceiling as a player, but I've seen a lot of growth over the last 2+ months that makes me feel good about him as the Mets SS.

@TimBritton


Nice to see.

I'd still like to see the Mets use the pitcher batting 8th more. They've mostly abandoned that.

Is there any reason Dom is in AAA? Shouldn't they give him one more look at 1B? Not saying it will work out but just seems silly to have him play LF in AAA.

Dom most likely turns up as a post-hype sleeper somewhere in a few years. Check out what Max Muncy is doing about 3 years past when the A's may have been ready for him and he matriculated thru their system. Smith just turned 23. It takes some players till 25 or 26 till it clicks. But given that Alonso has passed him in the org, Dom is best off getting moved somewhere he might get a shot in the next couple of years like the Tigers or Royals.

I know the Mets are trying to plug Smith into the OF but let's be real, part of the reason to was to clear a path for Alonso. I don't think Smith every had real high trade value at any point, and now they're selling him 10 cents on the dollar.

Nice start by the bats tonight. Feels like Homer Bailey has been a Red for ages.
