    Just let him play 2ba after you trade Murphy.

    I think our best bet is 2nd base for flores, he has good hands. His range will be limited but if he has pop we will attempt it. Otherwise you let him inflate his numbers at 3rd in Vegas then move him for an OF or pitcher.

Instead we gave it to Andres Torres who we knew was going to suck anyway. At least there's a chance Flores could be good. Please don't get another player like Torres for any of the OF spots next year.


    I've been saying this for a year now. Shame he wasn't playing outfield in the Instructional League. Makes no sense. We've got a bat without a position and three outfield positions without bats. What is wrong with this equation?

    Yeah, i get it, the man is no Bob Hayes. But the man is no Ernie Lombardi either. Look at it this way: HE HAS TO BE AT LEAST AS FAST AS LUCAS DUDA!!!!!!!

    Flores has really good hands on the infield. He was never going to stick at SS, but should fit at 1B or 3B.

    I wouldn't mind if Flores was in the deal if we got back d'Arnaud, Gose, and Syndergaard. We would basically bring back a pitching prospect with similar value to Flores.

    And when he was younger, Staub was not a bad outfielder at all, despite his poor speed.

    "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

    clueless comment. Staub was one of the great mets and a true class act.

    If the guy can hold his own at SS, there is no reason why he can't play at least average MLB level defense in a corner OF spot. If anything, he should be able to perform a little above average once he learns the position.

    He can't hold his own at SS, he would be embarrassingly bad due to clear lack of range. Mike Morse used to be a SS too you know, and look at him now.

    "Le Grand Orange"......Rusty was the man, on and off the field. A true class act, clubhouse gem, one of the greatest pinch hitters ever, with offensive talent and a flair for producing in clutch situations. To top it off, he played about as well as one could expect a big fat body to play in the outfield.

    I'm looking at him now. He's played first base, third base, and CORNER OUTFIELD!

    Now, whether Flores will be as bad as Morse out there remains to be seen. But the point is, Morse was a shortstop and was moved to corner infield and outfield.

    Such a no brainer.
