The Mets’ offense is bad. They just don’t score a lot of runs… face it, they don’t score a little runs too often. With not much offense coming from anyone not named David Wright or Daniel Murphy, I think I have the solution: It is time to bring Wilmer Flores up.
Wilmer Flores is hitting .308/.349/.488 in AAA and he’s driving in plenty of runs 52 in 66 games. He’s played mostly second base and the common problem people bring up is that Murphy already has the position covered. With Ike Davis demoted to AAA and hitting poorly in AAA the Mets have an opportunity to bring Flores up to play second while Murphy moves to first. But… what happens when/if Davis is ready to come back up?
Well… the Mets already know that there isn’t much sense in holding onto both Murphy and Flores. Both are hitting second baseman who will not be remembered for their gloves. This trade deadline will likely see one or the other traded to a contending team. (My money is on Murphy being traded.) Brin
