Mets Minors: Wilmer Flores, Canada and the return of the Gulf Coast Mets

Finding A Home: If the Mets had listened to me, Wilmer Flores would have spent all of 2012 in Port St. Lucie.  It wasn’t about his hitting, which more than earned his way into starting in AAA in 2013.  It wasn’t even his fielding, which was adequate at 3rd base and 2nd (In no way GOOD).  I would have held Flores behind because, if I were in command, he’d be in the midst...
