Deep Depth

by @ 3:11 am. Filed under Uncategorized

The New York Mets have the most players participating in the 2017 World Baseball Classic for many reasons: They have a talented team but also one that is young, diverse and multicultural. And the numbers could and would be higher if 3B David Wright was healthy. The point is the Mets are good, have both arms and bats and players from all parts of the Earth. This translates to the current 25 roster as we head towards April. Even with Wright hurt, Jose Reyes and Wilmer Flores can play Third and the team is not lost.  OF Michael Conforto is hitting missiles everywhere at a .580 clip yet could open the season in Triple A Las Vegas due to a lack of defined role, playing time. The depth extends to the pitching staff where Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman can spot start, relieve or end up in the minors. Meanwhile, former star P Zack Wheeler is throwing 94 MPH as he continues to come back from Tommy John Surgery in 2015. Memo: The 2017 New York Mets are good. #LGM
