Wilmer Flores, our starting shortstop, left today’s game (the first exhibition game of the year) after being hit by a pitch in the wrist.
We didn’t sign anyone despite the clear black hole at SS because the Mets were comfortable with Flores. I said in multiple articles that EVEN IF FLORES IS GOOD (unproven), you still need to sign someone as a contingency plan. Spend money? Yeah, right. It’s all good!
And Flores is now hurt. Without finishing 1 game.
Tejada? Reynolds? A shortstop that costs more than nothing? No chance for the third option.
All this laughing is hurting my obliques. Hey Duda! Metsblow.
