    I've definitely been under-rating his power. It is about time maybe to start giving him starts ahead of both Duda and Bay. I think he's actually had more focus coming off the bench as a pinch hitter, but the talent is clearly there for him to contribute as a starter.

    At this point, I see no reason to play Duda or Bay over Valdespin on a regular basis.

    What is there to figure out? The guy threw him a down and away fastball and he drove it over the fence.

    He's hit sliders and change-ups too, he just needs to be more discipline. But the hitting ability is there.

    Yeah, if you start putting him in the starting lineup, some of these pitchers will actually start preparing to face him, maybe even look at the scouting reports, etc.

    Even so, he's worth a look. You have to at least give him the chance to fail.

    Also it's not like Valdespin is an unknown at this point, he's made adjustments. I feel like pitching coaches are always coming out when he comes to bat, they personally give the scouting report.

    Play the man. Platoon Duda and Bay.

    Mark Carreon. A fave. Mets need to give JV as many ABs as possible, and preferably in the OF where the Mets are weakest.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    If it's not broke, don't try to fix it.

    Playing everyday has exposed a lot of young guys who have holes in their swing.

    It's the reason why you always see good players have sophomore slumps.

    Valdespin deserves to start, but not everyday. Not yet anyway.

    He's excelling in the role he is in now. Leave him be, he's a perfect PH.
