We spend so much time discussing whether or not the Mets should try and bring Daniel Murphy back next season... and then a game like this comes around and reminds us of how many games were lost this season because of bonehead plays he made in the field.
I've always been a proponent of defense first and maybe a return of Wilmer Flores to short, and an inset of Dilson Herrera at second will make us all deal with the loss of Murphy's timely bat easier.
Very strange vibe in the Nats dugout last night when Bryce Harper left the game after fouling a ball off his left ankle in the seventh inning. It seemed like no one in their dugout seemed concerned or gave two shits about what was going on. Interesting.
Michael Baron points out that the Mets may have found success in making Juan Lagares into a part time hitter against left hand pitching –
