  • Jake Marisnick

    The Mets are acquiring Jake Marisnick from the Astros for prospects Blake Taylor and Kenedy Corona

    All defense no hit. Seems like a waste.

    I like it for the bench / spot starting. If they are viewing him as the every day CFer....its a waste. The Mets have ZERO OF depth in the minors. None of their guys in the majors are even average CFers defensively.

    He's got speed, defense, and a little pop (double digit HRs for 3 straight years)...plus a rep as a hardworker "gamer" type in the McNeil / Nimmo mode...hate to say it, but fits the "culture" they are trying to build here. He had a pretty solid 2017 and put together a good run from the 2nd half of 2018 thru the first 1/2 of 2019. They gave up nothing for him. Seems like a solid 4th/5th OFer to me...I mean he did get a pretty decent role on a championship level team....doesn't mean he's automatically awesome, but they needed to do something to address the OF bench and OF D. He's an upgrade over Lagares assuming he's used in the same role

      At about 1/5 of the salary.

        Im Ok with this..especially since they had good luck with last trade..also cant hurt to have a guy who has been in playoff races..I do however want to see what the oF on market(Hamilton, Pillar, etc) end up getting salary wise to see if truly worth it..if those guys Hamilton (specifically) end gettting min. contracts..then Mets could have ave few mil towards other needs being that the AMEX balck card has yet to arrive in the maill..they are still counting pennies.. Pilllar will likely get more than 3 mil..so perhaps shouldnt be in equation for consideration..
        ACCEPTED TRUTH: That I will be ROYALLY F**CKED OVER by EVERY TEAM I ROOT FOR (METS, JETS & KNICKS) !!!
