Kernan says they are considering exploring this. I don't hate it.

The way to fix a top prospect who is struggling is to completely mess with his head. He and Smith can have some nice conversations out there.

This would be an off-season experiment. How does it mess with his head to see how he looks out there?

Doesn't sound imminent

The Mets have had some internal conversations about giving shortstop Amed Rosario a run at center field, but as of right now that is not on the table.

Teams are always trying to come up with creative ways to fix problems, and Rosario to center field is one of those conversations.

The No. 1 job for Rosario is to get his swing in order. The shortstop batted leadoff for the third straight game Tuesday night and went 0-for-4 and is hitting .230.

A lot would have to happen for Rosario to move to center field, including perhaps the quick advancement of top shortstop prospect Andres Gimenez who turns 20 in September. Gimenez was recently promoted to Double-A Binghamton, where he is hitting .304 over 13 games. He needs time to grow. The Mets could go out and obtain a veteran shortstop to give Gimenez that time if at some point they decide to move Rosario to center field.

Bring it. It's the acknowledgement that Gimenez is the real deal.

Have to applaud the creativity that had been a pejorative for years. Undoubtedly Omar's influence. They'd been the most staid organization prior to his return. Anyhoo.. I'd been calling for Cheech's move to CF for years. Positional versatility is the game today. I dont really see a downside to this.

Doesn't sound like it's actually happening. "Internal discussion" likely IS code for Omar though.

Well, as with any discussion relating to the baseball op, it's all hypothetical until a new baseball chief is brought in.

Anyone else remember the great Keith Miller in CF experiment? How about the time they tried to make HoJo a Centerfielder?

The past is prologue. Just bring back Jackson in 2019.
