Patience begins to run thin as you approach Memorial day weekend.
Not bringing up Rosario because your pitching is the problem is simply put dumb logic. Does Rosario strengthen weaknesses on the roster? yes or no mp? Yes or no? Does he improve team speed, runs scored, and defense? Yes or no mp?
Asdrubal is the definition of a stop gap SS. You can move Rosario to 3B and make Reyes the super utility guy. TJ Rivera is a JAG.
how do you know? I am a huge fan of Rosario but outside of improving team speed because he is faster you simply don't know if he will improve anything else. He has struggled defensively this year in AAA (which the mets organizaiton has stated). And how are you going to tell me he improves run scored because we are scoring plenty of runs. Are you 100% believe he will come in and be a 300+ hitter in the majors?
TJ rivers his hitting 306 with a 385 OBP in the MAJORS with 9 runs scored in the last 10 games. And you don't want him to play. Sorry I watch every mets game and tj rivera needs to continue to play. I know rosario is going to be a stud but let be honest we Ty Kelly was hitting .400 in vegas before we brought him up and he couldn't crack .200 with the big club.
Let be fair for a second. You or I don't know what Rosario will do in the majors. I'm telling you as a Mets fan, how the organization thinks. They are going to ride or die with the vets this year until they are out of it. Then you will see Rosario and Smith so they can prepare for next year.
But the mets offense is doing fine. I don't think bringing up rosario to bench a guy that is hitting 362 with a 434 OBP in may (last 2 weeks) solves anything. I think I answered your question as directly. Rosario time will come. He doesn't even have 150 at bats in AAA...there is no need to rush him.
I watch every Mets game too, and Rivera is what he is. Great player in spurts, but isn't someone you can rely on as a starting quality player. Great utility player.
You can keep trying to think you have validation because you're a Mets fan. That doesn't mean anything. I watch every Mets game as my pops and friends are Mets fans.
Wilmer Flores and TJ Rivera are JAGS and Reyes is on the back 18 of his career. Asdrubal has been banged up all year and last year was an outlier more than anything. The impact of bringing up a phenom can single handedly energize a team.
Rosario's OBP is over .400 and OPS is nearing .900. Even if it's in the minors, he's shown he has control of the plate and would add to RS because he'd be your teams only REAL leadoff hitter. And his glove has been fine and he has the most range of any Met infielder.
Again, I've had this discussion in the Yankees forum. AA and AAA are interchangeable for hitters. You don't need a ton of AB's in AAA to groom a hitter. He has over 400 AB's between AA-AAA which is what I go by.
