Sounds like a guy who knows he might not be that good anymore, but really, really wants to keep his job as a good veteran clubhouse presence.
There was a moment there when I had him confused for Valdespin, probably the guy you'd least like in that role.
Glad Minaya isn't the GM anymore; the Archie Bunker types would make this into a thing.
That guy who used to show up in Mets threads all the time rambling about"street Spanish" is going to love this.
Thanks, PF. I gauge the likelihood of this occurring, considering the Mets would move Franklin off his actual position, to be approximately 140%.
Ruben Tejada still isn’t working out for the Mets.
Even though Tejada attended an offseason strength/conditioning and nutrition camp in Michigan, Mets management has not been overwhelmed by the shortstop’s “new’’ body.
“He looks pretty much the same,’’ one source told The Post on Monday.
I saw this - taking up the whole back page of the POST - and the same day a beat article in Yahoo about how much work he did in the offseason and how much better and ready he was.
Seriously. I like Franklin a lot, but the Mets don't need another player to add to the logjam at 2B.
Now, the Lagares rumor seems to have been started by our own District Attorney in comment #8.
I know nothing about Franklin, but if this is such a no-brainer, does that mean it's also pretty impossible in Seattle's eyes?
*If* the Mariners were going to take a package built around Lagares for Franklin, I would do that, only because they have den Dekker, who is also a plus glove in CF and has a decent track record hitting in the minors, coming up behind him. Both players have question marks around them, and though they profile a bit differently, I see them as sort of interchangeabl
I admit up front that I still heavily distrust advanced fielding statistics (which I doubt counts as accountability).
Den Dekker is almost 2 years older than Lagares. I think he has significantly less upside because of that.
I really DID/DO have a hard time understanding why his defense is in doubt.
Sea obviously doesn't need another 1B/DH
