1 for 13

Not sure what to make of Fernando Tatis right now.  In the off-season I advocated for a youth movement, and those plans didn't include the 35-year old, who was terrific in 2008, and not so good in 2009.

Sure, he had a fine August and September, but when the Mets needed him most, the numbers were not very good.

Hopefully the knee thing is over and he'll get back to form, but right now he's not looking like the player the Mets needed him to be, and his bat is not anywhere near that of Chris Carter, the projected "26th man".

  • Born: 1/1/1975 in San Pedro de Macoris Dominican Republic

I can't get too excited about spring training performances. If Tatis doesn't hit in April, then we can start to worry about replacing him.

I agree Paul...Tatis is super streaky...I sure wish Carter would have learned to play defense--he can swing the stick.

Tatis makes the club because the Mets have no other player who plays at 3B. At least there's none that has stepped forward. There's that Bowman kid who I guess will be in Buffalo, but that's it. But the guys off the bench as a backup at a position (one that Wright will only give up an inning or an at-bat for if it's bonked on the head again) need to be productive, especially if they're going to see more time on offense than defense.
