    Emaus, Turner, and Murphy are all much better hitters at this point. Why are you so interested in the Special Olympics then?
    It's funny. I get to listen to NY radio for about 40 mins a day and I have to listen to people argue which terrible player is going to play second base for the Mets. When the best option might be the guy they want to get rid of so badly.

      You couldn't be more wrong about him being the best option.

        He's the safest. If these guys fall on their face you can't get Luis back now. These other guys have options. Murphy can't hit or play anywhere. He's terrible. I'm tired about hearing about this guy. Emaus might be the guy who should play but if he fails what do you have then? It's not like you got anything for Luis. Should have held onto him.

          Murphy can hit plenty enough for a 2B, not a corner. He plays the game hard and does everything you ask so he's definitely someone you want around. He's going to be IF utility guy anyway. Emaus does everything better than Castillo at this point. Most think the Mets won't contend anyway this year so let a rookie get his feet wet and you possibly have a cost controlled 2B for the next 6 years instead of Castillo's dead weight this year. The move is 100% the right one to make.

            Man, I feel bad for the Brewers.

            AA is a godsend. I swear.

              Except Murphy can barely play a corner position at a poor major league level. He does everything the right way, but he's just not good at any of it.

                  He played passable 1B, that was overblown by a ridiculous play that he could never do again if he tried. He's the strangest player ever. He's such a fan favorite but he's terrible. I've never seen anything like it.

                    I don't even want him to win the 2B job. The one play was good but that's also not what I'm basing his 1B defensive production from. He showed good range there and as he settled in he played it well. I don't think we can really say he's a terrible player. He came up in 2008 and had a great 130 AB's. 2009 was not nearly as good but he was jerked around and started hitting much better the second half of the year. We'll see this year what kind of player he is. If he sucks it's a good thing we found that out in what believe is a non contending year.

                      It is a Met thing.

                            Thank the lord. And is Jughead seriously complaining about theMets 2B talk when way more coverage is given to the epic battle of Nova, Garcia, and Colon?

                              He had a way better 130 ABs in September.

                                Unless I'm missing it, that doesn't seem to be talked about. It's not much of a battle anyway.
