Mets Send Dom Smith Down To Triple-AAA

31 May

Dom Smith

Dom Smith is headed to Syracuse. The Mets optioned their unhappy first baseman/outfielder to the Triple-A Mets on Tuesday. The team called up pitcher Adonis Medina in a corresponding move.

Smith has been vocal in recent weeks about wanting to play more.

I don’t care about Dom not getting to play every day. Buck gave him plenty of opportunities to do well and he didn’t take advantage of it.

Mets Designate Robinson Cano for Assignment

2 May

While I get that Robinson Cano is far from a sympathetic figure what with all the money he’s making and of course the PED suspension which took him away from the team for an entire year. But if we’re being fair 41 ABs with sparse playing time does not equal a fair assessment on whether or not a player has anything left. And damn, while we all know that Steve Cohen is mage-rich, to just eat $40M like that is kind of insane.
