.. 1b/OF

3 full seasons in the PCL with Colorado only giving him 51 MLB ab's isn't the best sign... https://www.baseball-reference.com/regi ... tter000jor

Hasn't he grabbed more guys off waivers than Sandy did his entire tenure?

Doesn’t bode well for Dominic Smith.


I'd say not.

This move indicates the Mets clubhouse will be tidy, masculine, and content.

Dom must have really pissed off the Wilpons.

It's taken my idiot brain almost 3 hours to process the fact that this puts him on the 40 Man Roster.

Geez.

The fascination with fans hoping a former top 100 prospect will actually pan out, or the fascination with management finding dozens of ways to tell him to take a hike?

I was never Dom's biggest believer but this passive agressive stuff is stupid. Either trade him or don't, but bringing in fifty people for his position and booting him to the outfield where they also have five hundred outfielders is like they're intentionally spiting him.

He's not that good. People should accept it.

But the narrative that 'they have 500 OFers' is patently false anyway. They have been very thin in the OF in the upper minors in fact. With Alonso banging on the door, getting Dom some time in the OF was not only good for the team but also good for him personally (to showcase some versatility).

Who's kidding whom? His was always a tough profile - a gap-to-gap over power 1Bman. He's only making it tougher by whiffing >25% of his PAs.
