    In baseball as in some other areas of life where individual performance is most important, this shows just how un-clutch Lindor is (and the team as well). The Mets are loaded with un-clutch...

    I see Peraza being optioned if he has any left or waived if he doesn't and Guillorme moves back into his utility IF role (which he excels at anyway). I kind of like Alonso 1b, Villar 2b, Lindor ss,...

    Some might say McNeil can move to 3b. It appears that the Mets brain trust saw enough of that experiment last year. I personally do not think McNeil has a strong enough arm to handle 3b. Davis...

    Good points but when the big guys get back, I smell trades. Lindor likes Peraza or Guilorme as his keystone combo mate. Mc neil likely will need to go to 3b or LF where there is Dom. I see Dom and...

    Nimmo will be this team's left fielder when he returns. Conforto the right fielder until he opts for free agency or is traded.

    Dom will likely be on the trade block as will JD.
