What the hell would it cost them to see if this guy can handle himself in left field? Yes, I heard all the reports about his slow foot speed. But if he was a shortstop at some point in his life, especially for nearly all of his young professional career, he's obviously not the second coming of Ernie Lombardi.
But hey, I've never seen him. Maybe if I catch a glimpse of him in ST I may feel differently. Until then I'll be scratching my head wondering how a power hitting ex-shortstop isn't being considered as a possible outfielder on a team that has none. Zero. Zip. Bupkis!
Just makes no sense and flies in the face of reason. But hey, these are the New York Mets, aren't they?
"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."
