Jordany Valdespin’s Days As A Met Are Numbered

Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to be with the Mets past the trade deadline. I’ve been a staunch defender of Valdespin since the...

Mets Better Off Without Valdespin

Two weeks ago I wondered why Jordany Valdespin wasn’t getting more playing time. Now, I’m wondering why I bothered to care. Why should I, or anybody else for that matter – outside his immediate family – care about Valdespin, of whom GM Sandy Alderson recently said is testing his limits of tolerance? Answer: There is no reason. VALDESPIN: Will never be the man. The Mets finished...

Jordany Valdespin Doesn’t Care What You Think

He homered Valdy Style. When Jordany Valdespin walloped a ninth-inning homer into the second deck in right field – the “Pepsi Porch” – he flipped his bat and watched the ball soar, not exactly toeing the line on baseball etiquette. But Valdespin seems unlikely to change. “When you hit the ball, you got to enjoy your hit,” he said. “Every time I hit the ball, homer...

Can Mets avoid the Peter Principle with Jordany Valdespin?

No doubt that you have heard the phrase, “people rise to the level of their incompetence.” This is a common experience in the work place, which is filled with managers who were successful in their previous position and then promoted into a position for which they have no aptitude. Essentially, this is the Peter Principle. Jordany Valdespin has a knack for coming up with memorable...

Jordany Valdespin is fighting his way onto the Mets opening day roster

Jordany Valdespin was far from guaranteed a spot on the New York Mets opening day roster, but with his strong Spring campaign continuing through this past weekend, the 25-year-old may very well be on his way to earning just that.  Yesterday the Mets and St. Louis Cardinals were scoreless until the eighth inning, when Valdespin’s single off Edward Mujica plated Travis d’Arnaud...

Is Jordany Valdespin a long shot for the Opening Day roster?

Mets MLB.com beat writer Anthony DiComo, on his Mets Cetera blog, has up a projected Opening Day roster. DiComo notes, “this is an exercise in futility: we will only consider players who are currently under team control, even though the Mets are likely to add at least one starting pitcher, reliever and perhaps outfielder before Opening Day.” If you understand the restraints...

Problem Child: Valdespin Suspended For Insubordination

Jordany Valdespin had a two-week absence from playing for his winter-ball club in the Dominican Republic because of a team-imposed suspension for insubordination, two sources told ESPN New York.
