Trade to Reds Might Be Worst-Case Scenario for Matt Harvey

The Matt Harvey saga is officially over in New York, but it’s just beginning in a new and unlikely place. On Tuesday evening, the Mets announced they were trading Harvey, who was designated for assignment last Friday, to the Reds in exchange for catcher Devin Mesoraco. The deal is essentially a swap of broken-down former All-Stars, though for Harvey, the move to Ohio can charitably be described as a worst-case scenario.

NY POST - Kerber: Wilmer Flores becoming the Mets’ human version of Spackle

For Russlan:

PORT ST. LUCIE — It was Friday. Or Wilmer Flores gets to play first base day.

And don’t confuse it with the other days of the week, such as Wilmer goes to the outfield day, or Wilmer plays on the left side of the infield day. The Mets’ human version of Spackle — you got a hole, he can fill it and look good with a little buffing — is thankful Wilmer catches or pitches days never make the calendar.

But Flores’ versatility that allows him to play anywhere in the infield plus now the outfield, too, should make coming to work an adventure. Flores is getting the opportunity because of his offense, which manager Mickey Callaway wants to use.

“The best thing is not to think about it. Just go out and wherever you play, catch the ball and throw the ball,” Flores, who has hit .340 this spring with three homers, said after the Mets’ 5-1 loss to the Cardinals at First Data Field “You can’t have too much information about every position. You have to know it but if you can’t keep thinking, like ‘I’m not ready to play because I haven’t had enough reps at that position.’ No. Stop thinking about it. Just go out and do your job.”

This is a positive article, but it is still pretty annoying.
