i don't disagree with anything you said. I just think bringing him up isn't one of our major concerns at the moment...personally.

mets have no leadoff hitter
mets have no speed in the lineup
mets have no range in the infield

how dare you say bringing him up isn't a major concern.

this was only a bomb of a hr because where he was hitting, if it was somewhere else it'd be a routine flyball :laugh: :roll:

mets are scoring plenty. Do you really feel the offense is the problem when we have the worst ERA in the league???

Its not just a hitters park, its like coors field on steroids because you don't even have to worry about the cold weather. And I am not comparing these players to Rosario. But guys like Plawecki, Kelly, Muno had some ridiculous #'s in AAA and they suck in the majors.

Last year 3 mets led the Pacific Coast league in batting. TJ Rivers, Nimmo, and Cecchini.

Rosario is a stud. But I am willing to be patient with him while our guys are hitting.

and his .830 ops last year was what, him getting lucky?[/quote]

reading comprehension must not be your friend. Rosario is a stud. He is one of the top prospects in baseball but he is not the missing piece at the moment. 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...

oh what does that say? Are the mets really the 4th best offensive team in the major leagues this year?

How dare the mets not bring up someone when there offense is already sizzling.

THE PITCHING SUCKS. NOT THE OFFENSE

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. :lol: :lol: :lol:

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.

wow, just wow.

lmaoo at you being sarcastic with the -7 runs, you know how pathetic that is? he's the 2nd worst ss in all of baseball when it comes to defensive runs saved. the only player worse than him is boegarts.

usually you want your ss to bail you out, but with cabrera the wheels keep on going. what could've been an out is now a 5 run inning.

and if I told you our team ERA was going to be +5 runs per game do you think we would have a shot in hell at the playoffs?

Stop running with ridiculous arguments. Whats the bigger problem with the team. Short Stop or the pitching? Just answer please. Then we can get over this. You act like I am hating on Rosario which I'm not. I'm well aware of his talent and skill set and what he can bring to the table.

I don't see the massive NEED FOR HIM AT THE MOMENT. Again would you like to comment on our pitching? Please?

Cabrera just re-injured his thumb and will end up on the DL. Did you do some voodoo on him? :lol:

BOTH!!!!!!

that's what me and a yankee fan mecca are trying to tell you, it just so happens that rosario's range improves the defense which might make the terrible pitching into bad pitching.

He's verified so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Think he jumped the gun a bit. I'd say Rosario's playing time is dependent on the extend of Cabrera's injury.

Definitely think that Amed can spark the club, though. It'd be reminiscent of the Reyes call up back in the early 2000's.

You're a Met fan right? We're talking about a franchise that moved prized prospect Jose Reyes to second base to accommodate Kaz Matsui. We're talking about a franchise that messed up Generation K, Generation K 2.0. We're talking about a franchise where a paper cut turns into a three month stint on the DL. We're talking about a franchise that only calls up prized prospects when there's no other options like Conforto. He made his debut on July 24th, when we needed some youth infusion for about two months that season. Even now we've barely embraced the fact that he's one of out best players.

congrats on enjoying your team suck and not care about turning the season around, pat yourself on the back but don't hurt yourself.

also quoting this organization is like quoting trump, what they say means absolute nothing.
