We have no idea how Pagan affected the rest of the team in terms of chemistry. We have no idea how the current crop plays or acts. We simply see the whats on the field. The movie about Mickey Mantle showed us an entirely different side to Mantle on partying and insecurities. Ike may have stayed out too late and thats what was hurting his hitting. Who knows. Obviously the Mets knew more about Pagan and felt it was in the best interest to part company. That said, my personality is affected by those around me. Maybe the team makeup isn't strong enough to carry the player. A good example could be the Marlins and they're explosion. 25 different pieces doesn't make a team.
