I think the Mets should ride JV out for the rest of the season. Then trade him while his value is still high in the offseason. He’s proved to be a good pop off the bench when he’s been needed. Otherwise, I believe that looks are what they call ‘deceiving’ with JV1…and that keeping him around for 2013 would be akin to shooting themselves in the foot.
