The Cheapons will want to delay his free agency clock.

Starting him OD would be dumb...have to wait a few weeks for that extra year.

I have to agree with delaying that FA clock by a year...it makes way too much sense.

how is it cruel? It's like a 3 week delay...nothing crazy. All teams do it.

I agree but they're going to want the extra year of arbitration.

I doubt he hits .312, he's not the same hitting prospect Posey and Mauer was.

He had high strike out rate and low walk rate in AAA last year, I think your expecting too much from him offensively.

Braves didn't do it with Heyward. Sometimes you just have to break camp with your future.

The Braves were just a tad bit better than us and were expected to compete...big difference.

I think at his peak he's like a .290/350 25 hrs kind of guy.

All-star production from the catcher spot but not on the same level as Posey.

what I'm saying is that the Mets are expected to not compete this year and therefore won't waste the extra year when it most likely won't matter. The Braves were competitive and were expected to win when they brought up Heyward..

He's coming off a knee injury, I wouldn't want him starting right away at the major league level. Let him go through spring training then get the proper rehabbing in triple A. It'll also be good for him to get to know Wheeler a bit.
