The faces have changed, for varying reasons. Gone are Ike Davis (.160 BA), Lucas Duda (injury), Ruben Tejada (injury), Justin Turner (injury), Collin Cowgill (sucked), and Rick Ankiel (sucked). In their place are a bunch of guys that were not a part of any conversation but are clearly better baseball players than the guys they replaced: Josh Satin, Omar Quintanilla, Eric Young, Jr., and Juan Lagares.
I was glad to hear Terry Collins say that Tejada's job is not guaranteed when he returns. I'd like to hear the same about Ike Davis and Lucas Duda.
I like what I'm seeing with the "B"-squad. I'd like to see Ike rake in AAA so we can trade him. I'd like to see Lucas Duda shipped off to an AL team for a bag of balls.
And more importantly, I'd like to see Satin, kin-tah-NEE-yah, EYJR, and Lagarares keep playing. I'm actually enjoying watching Met games again.
