    Meh....I'm okay with passing on him.
    Many of those Japanese players are unproven unknown entities when it comes to playing over here in the big leagues where the pitching and fielding is far superior, along with getting adjusted to a new culture, and the constant drudgery of longer travel for 6+ months during the season...and it takes a special kind of diamond in the rough player to make that transition work.

    I'm sure he possesses the basic tool to succeed, but it's a crap shoot for the most part.
    Once in a while you'll hit pay dirt, but that's pretty much been few and far between as history has shown over the last 15-25 yrs or so.

    If he pans out for Cincy, then more power to them and him.

    I don't think it'll come to that drastic of a turn, but who knows.....we're living in very strange times right now.

    Maybe some type of public apology with a show of contrition will do?

    We'll see.

    Well, I'm disappointed. Let's see where we go from here. Wouldn't be shocked to see Terry come back but hope they have someone lined up.

    Oh well...he and the front office decided to do what is right for the team by not becoming a distraction....and for the game of baseball, moving forward.

    Why Carlos Beltran is out before his first game as Mets manager

    Mets agree to part ways with manager Beltran

    The Mets FO should consider going with hitting coach Chili Davis for the interim...imho.

    Btw: Only 70 days to go until Opening Day.

    I've forgotten about Luis Rojas (whom I wouldn't mind at all), but they also need to add a few names..ie: (E. Alfonzo & C. Davis ) to their internal list of candidates for mgr. possibilities imho....

    Luis Rojas it is. Everyone seems to like him, it doesn't do much for me one way or another, hopefully he's competent.

    Also, not a bad depth piece to have around.
