There's another factor that goes in with the playing time, and that's 40-man roster management. Right now, they are at 39 players out of 40 who are healthy or on the 10-day disabled list. Then they have another eight players who are on the 60-day disabled list, and they don't count against the 40-man roster.

So essentially they're at 39 players, but there are 47 players they are taking into the offseason. They only have five free agents … Those five only take them down to 42 heading into the offseason. There is no 60-day in the offseason, so Yoenis Cespedes, David Wright … everyone has to be on the roster.

Then they have to start to cut guys to get under 40. They're going to want to add players in their own system who are eligible for the Rule 5 draft, unlike Peter Alonso.

So basically, you're looking at having to take some guys off the roster, and there's some easy choices. You're looking at Drew Gagnon, maybe Chris Flexen, Rafael Montero, Jack Reinheimer, P.J. Conlon. Those are five guys right there that would take the Mets to 36. If you added [Eric] Hanhold, that would leave you at 37.

So you'd only have three spots to add free agents, heading into the offseason, without cutting even further into your 40-man roster … Fans who are upset that they lost Chasen Bradford last offseason cannot be upset that they didn't add Peter Alonso for September.

I had an issue with not bringing up Alonso but i'm ok with it. I'm not sure how much you'll be able to tell from a handful of AB's anyway. My gut feeling is that they will look to make him part of a trade this offseason.

I never had an issue with it.

But if the Mets wanted to get the roster under 30 they wouldn't be losing much.

In order...(not the FAs)
Reinheimer
Philip Evans
Montero
Lobaton
Gagnon
Conlon
Peterson
Flexen
Sewald :(
Rhame

Then Reyes, Blevins, Jackson, Mesoraco, Ramos come off as FAs

That's 15 guys that can be removed from the 46 accounted for without really being a worse roster.

Not only are there 15 pretty easy cuts but there really isn't anyone to add.

Yeah, paring down this roster isn't an issue.

Already did a rundown on this. The roster crunch this season is a myth and it's pretty awful that some are buying it as a reason to keep Alonso down.

Quote:
Quick rundown of 40 man

Current number: 39 + 8 (47) on 60-day DL

Players on the 60-day DL (8): Cespedes, Wright, Lagares, Rivera, Evans, d'Arnaud, Montero, Ramos

Impending FAs (5): Reyes, Jackson, Mesoraco, Ramos, Blevins

Likely DFAs: Gagnon, Reinheimer

DFA bubble: Peterson, Rhame, Zamora, Sewald, Conlon, Callahan, Flexen, Cecchini, Evans, Rivera, Guillorme, Oswalt

Probably safe but who knows: Bashlor, Dom Smith, Bautista, Vargas

FAs leaving and DFAing Gagnon and Reinheimer brings you down to 40 even with the 60-day guys. Then you could open up 5+ more spots depending on who gets DFA'd or traded.

Likely adds:

Hanhold

Long-shot adds: Brentz, Thompson, Kaczmarski, Crismatt, Corey Taylor, Regnault, Urena, Mazeika, Blackham, Sanchez, Carpio, Moreno

Ton of space for new FAs or maybe they'll make a pick in the Rule V this year. Or maybe a surprise like Corey Taylor or Moreno gets added.

The Mets have several players they can and should remove from the 40-man. Placing Alonso on there a year early doesn't hurt them. Not to mention, actually figuring out if Alonso can be a major contributor to the 2019 Mets was much more important than holding on to a 40-man spot for the offseason.

Scout in a piece from @KenDavidoff does not believe Alonso's glove is good enough to be an MLB 1b https://nypost.com/2018/09/12/peter-alo ... -baseball/ #Mets

Maybe they are delaying promotion until the NL has a DH...
