    Peterson seems to be getting lost in the rotation discussion. He had a solid year and seemed to get better and smarter as the season, as short as it was, went on. He had a veteran's sense of knowing how to pitch, and knows how to make adjustments. If he can get his walks down a bit he'll be even better.

    Only problem is even if he excels, he'll have an innings limit. Same with Syndergaard. Which is why we still need depth help.

    He’s definitely my #5 when everyone is healthy.

    Most times Dom can look quite slick on groundballs. Do you know if he has a strong enough arm to handle third? I like the idea though. We need him playing everyday.

    Alonso played 3rd in college. He’d probably be a disaster there, but JD has been pretty close to that in the limited reps he’s had there.

    That would be a nice pickup. The Mets need a bridge to Syndergaard. Someone who is there in case of injury or if Peterson ***** the bed. That's not Matz. It shouldn't be at least.

    "Rizzo became only the seventh left-handed third baseman in baseball since 1913, joining Mario Valdez, Don Mattingly, Terry Francona, Mike Squires (who did it 14 times), Charlie Grimm, and Hall of Famer George Sisler. He's the first to do it since Valdez of the White Sox spent an inning at third on July 2, 1997."

    Interesting. Wonder what his demands are?

    Would like to bring him in for sure.

    From Tim Britton’s piece from 2018:

    “Except that, according to multiple sources, the Wilpons did say "No" to Alderson when he asked for more full-time personnel in New York's three-man analytics department, opting to hire interns instead.”

    Certainly a new era here now. #Mets

    Remember when Jeff Wilpon tried to say it was Sandy Alderson that didn't want to improve the analytics department.

    Good times.
