I also know that Alderson has first hand knowledge on the ETA dates for each of the walking wounded on the disabled list. He knows making a premature deal that would only bring someone that is going to get in the way in July wouldn't be prudent to do in June.
And frankly, I will sleep better at night when Ruben Tejada returns and is available for duty at a number of positions.
He probably has only begun to feel the pain (discomfort at this point) in either his neck, arm, or shoulder and is wondering what all the fuss is about. That's how stenosis creeps up on you. First, it feels like a knot in your neck... next, you can't put on your shirt without assistance.
I assume his weakness is down his left side, which includes the neck, shoulder, upper arm, and lower arm. He will never have the bat speed again to compete at a major league level. Never.
Long term, would take a whole new post, but you must now consider resigning Murphy as one of your options. He will have his most value as a Met rather than out there on the open market.
Like I said, I didn't have much to say today...
