Tom Brennan - ADRIAN GONZALEZ SO FAR IS BETTER THAN...

We were recently speculating how long the aging Adrian Gonzalez would last this season.

How about asking instead who he's done better than so far? 

After all, in just 21 starts (26 games) and just 82 at bats, he is hitting over .250 with 5 homers and 19 RBIs.

OK, so let's answer that question:

He's done better than:

Michael Conforto

Jay Bruce

Travis d'Arnaud

Kevin Plawecki

Amed Rosario

Jose Reyes

Matt Harvey

Zach Wheeler

Steve Matz

Jason Vargas

Hansel Robles

Paul Sewald

Jose Lobaton

Tomas Nido

Dominic Smith

AJ Ramos

Jerry Blevins

Lucas Duda

Neil Walker

He's done as well or better than:

Todd Frazier

Brandon Nimmo

Seth Lugo

Jeurys Familia


Looking at it that way, I know my answer now:

Adrian Gonzalez can stay for a LONG TIME.

Rob, nice. It shows that patience is sometimes a virtue, as in Gonzalez's case.

I will admit that I was wrong about AG (so far).....the Mets have much bigger problems then first base.

@Mike -- I CATCH your drift.

Indeed!

Sorry, not happening. He’s a stiff despite his three good games so far. Blind squirrels find acorns too.
