nmigliore Posted October 17, 2009 Share Posted October 17, 2009 (edited) thing is what the mets ARE short on is MLB-ready players at every position. This past year? Yeah I would say they were, outside of Niese who was MLB-ready when called up, hence the reason they called upon so many fillers like Sullivan and Valdez (note: I didn't list F-Mart since he didn't appear MLB-ready to me despite doing really well in AAA for a month or so). But next year, it should be much different.. Ike Davis, Josh Thole, Ruben Tejada, Brad Holt, Jenrry Mejia, Lucas Duda, and Eric Niesen are part of the group of AA talent moving up to the AAA level and they all arguably could be MLB-ready some point next year (and that's not counting some of the guys that were in AAA this year, ie: F-Mart, Kunz, Gee). Heck, if they really wanted to, they could stick Niesen, Holt, and Mejia in next year's bullpen, stick Davis at 1B, and stick Thole behind the dish as the everyday catcher. But of course I rather them not do that. Edited October 17, 2009 by nmigliore Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
