I would take Valdespin over Hicks or Lutz in a heartbeat.

Clutch bat with pop is always handy.

Besides Wright I think he is my Favorite Met. I like his swagger and attitude This team is lacking players like that, enough choir boys.

Agree completely, we need more guys that show fire. He, Murph, and Johan are the only ones I can think of that show a lot of emotion.

If only he hit right-handed he would be a lock to make the team. We'll see him at some point though regardless of whether or not he makes the team out of Spring Training.

thought about frank but he doesnt show so much, he either scowls or gets an amused look on his face when he gets bombed

Yea I noticed he thinks he is being squeezed by the Umps sometimes and then he unravels rather quickly when things don't go his way.

Again? You mean like last year and then now as again? Flores and Hoffman also hit home runs today too. Do we also need their bats in the line up?

Do you really think the HR's are the important part of the post?

What is the matter with you?

valdy can play all 3 OF posutions plus 2b. forget ss. he might win a job at the expense of an OF candidate. i figure duda cowgill and byrd are near locks, so valdy is competing with niewenhuiss brown and baxter. figure 2 of that group make it, the other 2 plus DD start the season at AAA. since cowgill and bryd are both righties, brown goes to AAA. browns shot is to beat out byrd. so that leaves 3 lefties for 2 spots. baxter proved he could pinch hit last yr, as did valdy. i think it comes down to valdy and niewenhuiss and i would not be surprised to see valdy get the job if he plays a good cf in ST. i still think sandy might make a trade before season starts which could change the equation. valdy needs to show improved plate discipline as well as ability to play CF. thats my take, collins and alderson might see it differently.

In the title you say "Valdy homers again, need his bat on the team" Then in the post you call him clutch. So we need him. Clutch were, when? And then were does he play? He will start the season in AAA this year trying to work on a spot to play.

You seem to be the one that is overly excited by a single home run in ST.

You think I started this thread because of the HR? The HR inspired the thread but he could have gone 0-4 with 4 k's and I'd feel the same way and would make the same thread at some point.

Why do you seem so upset?

"Clutch bat with pop is always handy."

Are you talking about Valdespin?

The guy who hit .178 last year with RISP, and every single one of his clutch stats were bad to awful?

Not upset just showing some common sense. He so far doesn't fit any position on the team. He will have to prove himself in AAA first.

Yes. Had arguably the two clutchest hits on the team last year.

Two clutch hits doesn't make you a clutch hitter if you fail at in many more times when put into the same positions. It makes you lucky a couple of times.
