Game 19- Mets vs Braves

Weather permitting, the Mets will try to sweep the Braves. This is the line up that will try to get Mike Pelfrey the win:

Angel Pagan, CF
Luis Castillo, 2B
Jose Reyes, SS
Jason Bay, LF
David Wright, 3B
Ike Davis, 1B
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Henry Blanco, C
Mike Pelfrey, RHP

My Prediction: I'm expecting a 3-2 game, but it's a toss up who will win. But since they are having a great homestand, I'm going with the Metsies



  1. I need you to address something. I think David Wright should move to second base, once Castillo's legs finally fall off and he can no longer play. Move Wright to second, and get a third baseman with actual power.

    Your thoughts???

  2. Tom, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, this is not something the Mets would/should ever consider doing. 1) If D Wright is unable to handle 3B defensively, he will move to 1B, not to a harder defensive position (2B). 2) The Mets have no other 3B with "actual power" in the minor leagues, and there isn't anyone available on the trade market. Who would you suggest?

  3. I'm not suggesting this for this year. But within the next year or two.

    I think Wright is athletic enough to move to second. I think given his current lack of power moving him to 1st is a mistake. He is A-Rod? No. Is he Delgado? No. Can he be Jeff Kent? Certainly.

    As for who would replace him, I'm not sure who is available in AA, but I think you would have to look to free agency.
