Mets need Wilmer Flores to handle new role ‘like a veteran’ - NY Daily News

He seems like a nice kid. If he really was surprised, he might not be the brightest player.

So after playing short for the Mets in the World Series, it was a bit of a blow to Flores when the Mets signed veteran shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera this past winter.

“I was surprised,” Flores admitted. “My agent called and told me when it happened. I didn’t know what it meant for me.”

Wilmer Flores ignores another slight: ‘I want to be a Met forever’ | New York Post

It’s easy to like this kid.

Here is how he practices for his multi-position gig.

“Every day I will work one position and work the whole day there,” Flores said. “Today I worked at third base. One day at third. One day at second. One day at short. One day at first.’’

The uniform remains the same and that is the bottom line. He’s been a Met since he was 16.

“I want to accept this role. I have to accept this role,’’ Flores said. “When I play, I’m going to play like I am an everyday player. This is all I know. I love this organization. They’ve given me everything I needed.

“This team cares about each other, this is really one team and it starts with David Wright. He’s the leader, the captain and he makes you feel a part of this team. We’re going to work harder than ever to get back to the World Series.’’

This is his baseball life.

“I’m very proud to be a Met,’’ Flores said. “If it ever happens again, if I get traded, I will be sad. I will probably cry again.

“But hopefully not on the field.’’
