    Definitely. Upon further review, I underestimated Cecchini's glove. He made a ton of errors when he started out but he's much better lately. Reading the most recent scouting on him I was surprised to find so much enthusiasm for his glove (and versatility). The position change off short seems to be more about the team's greater enthusiasm for Rosario than Cecch not being able to handle it.

    From the little I've seen of Cecchini, he seems to have enough trouble reaching first base from the second base hole. By comparison. he makes Kaz Matsui's arm look like a rocket. Averaging 30 errors in the minors is troubling, especially taking into account that the action is much faster in the majors.

    He can't play the left side of the infield. Neither can Flores. As it stands now, the Mets have 4 players who can play the left side of the infield: Todd Frazier, Amed Rosario, Asdrubel Cabrera, and Jose Reyes. Dead horse beating alert: If you're gonna get rid of Reyes you have to replace him with someone who can play third and short. Kind of unrealistic to expect their all-star caliber second baseman to be the only viable backup at short and third.

    Just sayin.

    The more I read everyone's posts, it only confirms my belief that this team needs, with a few exceptions, a complete makeover.

    SA's fixits have been more term ones.

    It's exasperating to say the least.

    MC can be positive in his approach, but if players don't produce, he has no choice but to get new ones.

    All of this is true and an indictment of Sandy's construction of this team. Unnecessary redundancy in some areas and barren cupboards in others.

    He is hitting 11 points higher than average NL pitchers, cut him some slack.

    The entire team needs to be blown up and the farm system need be replenished...

    That's the only way this team has a chance to compete with the Braves.

    He was taking out of the lineup last night, looks like he is being promoted.

    Heard that too last night but until I learn he is on a plane headed for New York, I'm going to assume he was taken out because he pulled an oblique muscle, effectively ending his career as a professional baseball player.
