I couldn’t be less interested in Andres Torres coming back if I tried. I was sorta excited by him at the beginning of spring training but at this point I’d rather go with youth in CF.
I guess Torres can have a productive year for us but he’s still a retread with a limited upside as opposed to den Deker or Valdespin for instance. Neither of these guys is really ready for The Show but as a fan I’d be much more interested in watching a guy with a future as opposed to a SF Giant who is trying to bounce back in NY.
I’m just sayin’…
Meanwhile inking Niese to a 5 year deal in the 28M range is w/o a doubt the right move. There’s nothing not to like about Jon Niese. He’s young, gutty, wins and best of all he’s a lefty. This deal will allow the Mets to control him at a very sub market rate through his first year of full free agency.
Let’s go already with the season… No one cares about spring games anymore ….
