Last night's announcement that Daniel Murphy was going on the DL and would be replaced by 2B Dilson Herrera changed everything.
This isn't how the team we have grown to moan about operated... promoting the youngest player in baseball. What does this do to the future and how Terry Collins fills out a lineup card. I mean, just how many people can bat 8th?
An hour ago I wrote about a story out of NYC (Andy Martino) that the Mets were considering converting Travis d'Arnaud to fill the LF spot that is open. The logic being two fold... one) to prevent a 5th concussion and 2) make room for Kevin Plawecki.
You do realize that, if this was accomplished successfully, you now have filled every position other than shortstop and haven't moved one of your 1,248 potential starting pitchers.
Potentially, you now have a 15-25 HR hitting LFer, and a 10-20 HR hitting catcher in his first year
