What Outfield?

It’s a shame Sandy used that joke already because anything to diffuse the one on the field every night would be welcome. Lots of bad news on the injury front–besides the return of Jacob deGrom this evening which I’ll be watching live (or dead) in Citifield tonight.

Quickly catching up on Team Scrubeenie, there’s Yennsy Diaz in 64; Brandon Drury in 35; Wilfredo Tovar (man he’s put some weight) in 72 and as expected, Cameron Maybin in 15. James McCann is hitting 3rd and playing first base because Tomas Nido is the best hitter on the team. Johneswhy Fargas is the second-best so he went and collided with the wall last night.

    Perhaps deGrom can give us 7 innings, then switch to first base to keep his bat in the lineup.

  2. Chris says:

    Jake Hager was just claimed by the Brewers.

  3. Gene F says:

    Billy McKinney will be suiting up any day now. He wore 11 in Milwaukee, and that’s out. Is 7 mothballed? Would they ‘borrow’ 16 or 21 from long term injured Jose Martinez and Mallex Smith?

      What, 86 is not dignified enough?

      I can’t believe the Mets let Marcus Stroman singlehandedly make issuing #7 controversial.

  4. Matt B says:

    THIS! Stroman is responsible for the #7 controversy! I would love to see McKinney issued 7, but I bet he gets #21.

  5. Gene F says:

    McKinney in …..60? Yes, 60, per the Mets Twitter account,

  6. Gordon says:

    60 according to Mets.com. And batting cleanup to boot. Sounds like the answer to a future Mets trivia question.

  7. Jim A says:

    Just saw a tweet that McKinney will be wearing #60. Worked well enough for Gimenez I guess. Scott Schoenweis, not so much.
