    I'm not a big fan of Kirk either but then again, after 1968, who was a big fan of Tommie Agee?

    It's early in Kirk's career. He showed us something early last year before falling into oblivion. It's not out of the realm of possibility that he improves this year.

    I wouldn't bet on it but this is baseball and stranger things have been known to happen.

His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    They needed to keep Flores at third until they knew if Wright was staying...from this point forward he is a corner outfielder...if he and Puello and Nimmo turn into starters they will be our outfield of the future pending any megatrade or FA signing. As I said before when Duda is traded to the AL we will know that the Mets are going all in for a title. Between Murphy, Havens, Tovar, Tejada, Valdespin and Checcini we have enough middle infielders for the next decade....I just hope we have better luck than the last outfield of the future: FMartinez-Gomez-Milledge....and before that Payton-Ochoa-AEscobar!

    That's a good point that I never thought of and it makes sense. Has anyone in the FO mentioned that they will begin to move home into the OF????

    No one in the org has uttered as much as a syllable. I'd be willing to bet imaginary money (I'm a coward when it comes to betting, I admit it) that he plas zero outfield innings during ST.

    I'm a "glass is filled halfway in the cup" type of guy. Optimistic when I see fit, pessimistic when I see fit, mostly realistic.

    True, Tommie had a Jason Bay-esque season in 1968, but he was AL rookie of the year 2 years earlier. And Kirk?

    Our OF should be LF- Duda; CF - Kirk, RF - V-Spin.
    If we're going to be awful, we might as well put the 3 OF's on this roster who have some potential.
