Its awfully early to start picking favorites for open positions but I gotta say I find myself rooting for Brad Emaus to win the second base job.
I used to love Murphy but he feels like yesterday’s news to me.
I even defended Castillo and his contract well beyond almost any other Met fan — but no more.
Right now I love the idea of Riccardi grabbing a kid out of Toronto’s system and next thing we know he’s starting for the Mets. Sorta illustrates how our ex GM’s inability to stock our own system.
I’m just diggin’ the idea of a big kid at second base who can thump a little. We don’t necessarily need speed at second - we’ve might have a lot of SB’s out of Reyes, Pagan, Wright and Beltran (in that order).
Of course this may all change after as little as 1 spring training game but right now I’m rooting for Brad Emaus.
Now does anyone know how to pronounce his name??!?
