As much as J.D. had a breakout season in 2019, how he gets at-bats with that crowded infield and Cespedez declaring himself ready for Opening Day is beyond me.
This must be one of those combo player/longtime Mets broadcaster deals because Darling’s Mets career alone doesn’t quite warrant him getting in their HOF.
They say a manager really only makes a difference for a handful of games during a long, 162-game season, but I don’t necessarily believe that. Girardi was always my 1st pick for our new manager. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Brodie Van Wagenen made the right decision in hiring Carlos Beltran instead of Joe.
