according to Metsblog Flores was taking grounders at second with Murph yesterday and the Mets would like to see how he handles second this season
i think it's the correct move,give him as many reps as possible at second while he's at AAA and see what he's got
i think that's a result of the lack of depth we had talent-wise in our minor league system for so long,trying to make Murphy and even Valdespin outfielders and now perhaps making Flores a second baseman or still another outfielder
when you don't have many options because of this lack of depth you have a tendency to try to make the talent you DO have fit the needs of your franchise
At this point I tend to agree.
That's his position, and if this experiment at second doesn't work it just lowers his potential trade value. I think we could all easily foresee a situation in the future in which he is dealt for a similar talent in the OF... No need to ruin that potential situation.
see,i think the exact opposite,i don't see how him not being able to play a new position lowers his trade value,if he can't play second it doesn't take away from his ability to play third
i see it as a no lose situation that may allow us to increase his trade value
"That's his position, and if this experiment at second doesn't work it just lowers his potential trade value. I think we could all easily foresee a situation in the future in which he is dealt for a similar talent in the OF... No need to ruin that potential situation."
Completely agree, Lets hope he puts ups some ridiculous stats in Vegas that are too good not to notice even after taking PCL into consideration.
thats not what he was saying
he hates david wright so his point was that david wright is terrible and never should have been resigned and we should have just traded him and let flores start at 3b
he's part of that "david wright is garbage and is the whole reason this team is bad" crowd of mentally challenged posters
Well, where is he among 3B prospects? From what I recall reading he is among the best.
So if a team needs a 3B and they have an OF prospect they can part with, that may be a deal in waiting.
hes number 10 on some lists...mostly on lists compiled by people that havent completely written him off....if you go by other prospect gurus (like law) hes not even in the conversation
not nearly as respected as he should be after putting up those numbers
