    That's the only think we can say with certainty about Flores right now. Barring injury to Wright, Flores will not play third base with the Mets. Time to explore corner outfield or second base.

    Another option: Petition the NL to use the DH already. The time is long overdue.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    This...

    Or like MetsJets said an OF prospect similarly rated.

    Although prospect for prospect trades are less likely to happen.

    Murphy is both quicker and has better foot speed. Everything I had read on Flores knocks his quickness and range.

    I think the National league DH could happen in the next CBA which this one is not up until I believe 2016 or 2017.

    Next year doesn't matter. Hold onto Flores and revisit this question next off-season. Flores is still a twig, and he's about to go to Vegas. Watch what happens in a year when he puts on 25 pounds and really starts hitting for power, his prospect status is going to balloon. There are very few 6'3, 220 pound 2Bmen in this league. That's what Flores will eventually become. Leave him at 3B, and just let him develop.

    I'd rather hold onto Familia/Mejia, see if one of them can pan out in the pen, and let Wilmer develop. Again no rush to the majors, Wright's got that spot for a decade.

    If someone is dangling a guy like Wil Myers or D'Arnaud in your face, you take the deal, but the chances of that happening are slim to none. Sit pat and enjoy the non-moves for the next 8 months.

    Flores has no position with us now that Wright is extended. You rather have Flores over Ike?

    What if he doesn't rake in Vagas? Then your only opportunity to trade him is gone.

    If the Mets have a standout hitter who can only play 3B, they should look at Wright for LF. He could probably do it easier than most.

    I say keep Flores for a couple of reasons, his stock is not that high to really get something good for him unless you package him with others. I also would like a 3rd baseman who can relief Wright if he gets injured. See in a year or 2 where his value is.

    I wonder if that's a possibility to prolong his ability offensively.

    I doubt it but they did try it with Chipper who was less athletic than Wright was when the Braves tried it.

    Needless to say it didn't work out that well with Chipper.

    he's still young enough to convert him to catcher...He's about the same age as Piazza was when he first started catching...

    It's not my ideal choice, but if Flores is a legitimate hitter, you make room for him. We're terribly short of hitters. Wright strikes me as being extremely athletic and with a great attitude. I could see him making the transition.

    I thought Wilmer was playing 2nd base just as much as third? I'd rather hold onto him and hope he turns into a good hitting second baseman, something that is somewhat tough to come by.

    If he and someone else can get Myers or someone such as, I don't see a problem with it.

    If he only had Kingmans power..

    Then he would have trade value to an American league team as a DH

    ^Near zero value right now. Coming off a bad year and a broken wrist a few weeks ago.
