    If Evans takes Cespedes' spot and makes the most of his chances I believe they'll cut Jose when it's time to make a choice. I like Evans over Guillorme as a bench player because he has more power. Long-term I think Guilorme becomes the better player with a more productive career.

    If Guillorme hits, I think he takes Rosario's job because of his superior defensive skills at short. Or maybe one of them slides over to second base as Cabrera's eventual replacement. But that's only if Guillorme shows himself to be a hitter. So far he looks pretty good.

    Evans is kind of a wild card. My latest baseball fantasy (not to be confused with more lurid, colorful ones) is that he becomes this fearsome line drive hitter who cements himself as the starting third baseman for the Mets for many years. More likely, though, i see him as a reliable utility guy who can play almost every position well and hit off the bench.

    But we'll see.

    Guillorme for sure takes over Cabrera next year or takes over Frazier the year after. I assume the Mets will still offer Cabrera a one year deal when the seasons over though.

    Guillorme is undeniably better than Reyes at this point but I also think Rosario is better than him. Guillorme makes hard contact even if he doesn’t have a lot of pop, I’m sure that’ll improve as he progresses. I like Evans as a utility guy but I think Guillorme has more upside and could help create a vacuum up the middle.

    I see Evans as more of a bat and Guillorme as more of a glove. Time will tell.

    Yup. And I'd rather have the more powerful bat on the bench with this roster. For Guillorme to take over at second down the road we need a lot more power/production from the rest of the lineup, starting at 1B and catcher. I don't see Guillorme supplanting Rosario at short unless Amed is a bust as a hitter. It's not like Rosario is a hack with the glove.

    The weird thing about Jose, because he's so not and cold, is I can see him going to another team, playing regularly and hitting .280 while playing slightly below average defense. A bench role doesn't suit him at all.

    I think he's cooked.

    He was actually pretty freaking great the second half of last year, but it's anyone's guess if he can do that in a part-time role. So far the only thing he's been able to repeat is how awful he was at the start of last year. lol

    And with guys like Evans and Guillorme around, keeping him around to find out is a pretty hard sell.

    Last summer I said Guillorme could push Rosario to 2B and Brooklyn called me stupid. Let's see if he calls you stupid too!

    I'm quite sure the entire borough of Brooklyn didn't call you stupid. I could see Canarsie calling you stupid, but Flatbush and Prospect Park would never be that crass.

    I’m more charming so maybe not.

    You’re probably right. Staten Island, on the other hand, is a whole ‘nother matter.

    Staten Island should be donated to Arkansas.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    Dated a girl named “Domenica” from Staten Island, many years ago. Nice Italian girl. Took her out twice and that was enough. Staten Island was just too far for a nice Jewish boy from Nassau County, Long Island.
