Now I do understand that three outfielders the Mets were depending on to fill out the roster are on the disabled list -- Ryan Church, Angel Pagan, and the potentially finished Moises Alou -- but for the love of all that is holy can Val Pascucci get a look over Endy Chavez? He's a decent pinch runner you say, well how about Marlon Anderson? He plays all over? Wait, what's Easley's job then? Why do you need Tatis if Wright and Nixon are playing everyday with Marlon and Endy sharing time?Me neither. The Mets have deemed Chavez and Anderson good bench guys who add flexibility to the roster, and it will take a lot more than numbers for them to change their minds about that.
The problem with the Mets is roster management. Simply there is no need for Anderson, Easley, and Tatis. Ideally the Mets will realize their redundancies when Pagan or Church return and rid themselves of Chavez and Anderson, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
And it's worse than RJ suggests. Not only do Chavez and Anderson play pretty much every day, but even Robinson Cancel and Abraham Nunez have received pinch-hitting appearances instead of Val Pascucci, Chris Aguila, and a million other players who are more worthy.
The Mets are simply not a well-run organization.
