That's alot of lefties
We don't know when D'Arnaud comes up but he won't be on the opening day roster. So it will be Buck hitting after Duda.
And you're right, we have alot of lefty bats with no viable right handed bats to platoon with them.
Why would the Mets do something that no other franchise does with a rookie?
Just as the Rays brought up Longoria, Yankees brought up Cano, so will the Mets bring up D'Arnaud.
We'll see D'arnaud in May.

hes one of the "realists" that think this was a bad trade bc tda is "unproven" and subject to be a bust....hes essentially saying how do you even know he'll be ready by may bc hes such an unknown quantity that could be the next fmart
you know, pure asinine drivel
