Josh Satin’s value to the Mets

It’s no surprise that as the Mets sit here in July, many new faces have come up and seen time in the big leagues. One of those new faces has come up and taken over at first base. That is none other than Josh Satin.  With Ike Davis finding himself in the minors and Lucas Duda hurt, the Mets turned to a prospect that they liked, but just couldn’t find room for at the big league...

As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets.
