you don't compare IF to OF...you're missing the point
he never said - the mets if is the best core in baseball....you have to compare them to others at their posiiton and the fact is that every single one of our infielders will likely grade out as better than average offensively at their position...and, w/ the exception of 2011 when he was hurt, wright was still better than average at his position during those years
you are the one thats failing to be objective in your efforts to paint the team as being bad
2B- 10thSS- 10th3B- 3rd1B- 12thC- TBD
That is not a great infield.
"i dont know that theres a team in mlb w/ an infield that is much better than that"
"I wouldn't necessarily say it's better, but based on last year's numbers LaRoche, Espinosa, Desmond and Zimmerman would get the nod."
You're not including catcher though, which could give the Mets the edge.
"Don't forget that Ike has yet to establish himself. He needs to hit over 30 HRs and bat over 250 this season to prove that he is a top slugger."
Let me repost exactly what I wrote...
TDA, Davis, Murphy, Tejada, Wright - If TDA pans out and Ike and Tejada progress as reasonably expected, is there an NL team with a much better IF than that?
"Also, Murphy and Tejada are good hitters for 2B and SS, but they are worse than even average OFers."
We're not playing them in the outfield.
"Wright is the only established hitter we have in the infield, and even his has been iffy for 3 seasons."
Murphy is established too...but let me repost once again so you can catch up...
"Please slow your role and be more objective."
Slow my role? Lose the feigned arrogance. I posed a premise derived from my opinion and reasonable expectations. Your opinion on the other hand is no more objective than anyone else's.
This bratty attitude is exactly why you get the responses you do from people.
"you don't compare IF to OF...you're missing the point

Exactly. What does the outfield have to do with it? He obviously didn't even read the post, nor its subject. He's not the brightest bulb.
"2B- 10thSS- 10th3B- 3rd1B- 12thC- TBD
That is not a great infield."
Not is, was. And we're talking will be anyway.
He is a good hitter. He hit .289.
You don't need power from the shortsop position. He's still only 23.
"Yeah as in Tejada is not a very good hitter. OPS under .700 proves that."
Yeah, because short stops who are really good fielders and hit .289 at the age of 22 just stink. Good lord the kid wasn't even fully grown.
