The mets staff and bullpen have been atrocious that was my point. All I was saying was don't use Las Vegas numbers to tout a prospect. Rosario was really good before that but at the moment he isn't a immediate need.
They are scoring plenty of runs. The NEED pitching!!!!
Not sure what so difficult to understand...my boy...
cabrera is -7 defensive runs saved, last year he was -7 ALL YEAR ... do you not understand how terrible cabrera is defensively? him being on the field alone has cost THE PITCHING 7 runs and we're only in the middle of may.
this is evolving from not calling up rosario, to you straight up believing this team is good as is with cabrera and reyes playing ss.
OMG 7 runs!!!
I know Cabrera is horrible defensive. He is also extremely banged up. But thats not the way baseball works with guaranteed contracts. Sorry...you know for a fact the mets aren't going to bench a 10 million dollar a year player that was coming off a good year.
He is off to a horrible defense start. No one is denying that. But cabrera's defense is not losing games. It is a concern but not a big enough to lose Rosario's development in AAA and super 2 status (whether you like it or not...it matters and every team does it).
Sorry the mets 5+ staff ERA is not because Rosario isn't' starting at SS. That is ridiculous. Cabrera didn't even play yesterday and the team blew a huge lead? why?
Because the pitching staff can't get deep into the games and the bullpen (which has been overused) faltered again.
Rosario will get plenty of time in the majors this year if the mets continue to play like this. All I'm saying the mets should be in more of a rush to find pitching help then bring rosario up. Rosario doesn't solve the pitching issues.
I'm telling you we could have Rey Ordonez in his prime playing SS and we would still be 4 games have a below .500 record.
Until the pitching situation is solved the mets aren't going to run Rosario into the majors...in my opinion.
