    A full day and no comments yet. That in itself is a comment on the Mets.

    Other than David Wright and maybe Jon Niese, is there anyone healthy, proven, and worth mentioning on that roster? I see a whole lot of blah or worse. It reminds me of some of the rosters my Pirates trotted out for most of the 20 years before 2013, a lot of, "Well, maybe, if if if...".

    I'm keeping a few of the minor league guys in mind, though. They may be Mets, but they're still worth watching, just in case.

    I figured that's because it was Thanksgivukkah.

    Juan Lagares - an unusual combination of low HR, low SB, high K, and low BB.

    421 PA, 4 HR, 6 SB, 96 Ks, .281 OBP, .633 OPS

    Is his job safe (good at defense?)

    He's a great defensive CFer, but as you pointed out, he has shortcomings with the bat. As of now, it's presumed he'll split time with the newly-signed Chris Young.

    Not unusual on my rosters, although I've never owned this particular bit of nothing.

    Jordany Valdespin non-tendered, and he wasn't even arbitration eligible yet! Odds that he finds another team?

    He's got talent, so he'll find another team. Every organization think that they're the ones that can straighten a knucklehead out...
