Andrew Brown has to be on this team's bench this year.  The guy is tearing it up and he has a Matt Stairs quality to him.

Why when Murphy had no hits you mentioned it. When he had 3 today 2 singles & a Double no mention.

It appears to me that some of the players up in the big team  should be playing down in the minors, and some that are working on lower echelon sould be upstairs. Ike, Duda, Vs.: Brown , Lutz. Satin.

Player / Today in LV / Spring BA

----------------------------------------

Wright / 0-2 / .167

Granderson / 0-2 / .185

d'Arnaud / 0-3 / .143


Cause for concern?  We had a much better lineup vs StL today (and vs better pitching, to boot)...except for Ruben, of course.   Arby's new Rueben sandwich could do a better job at SS and at the plate, haha.

How did Flores look at SS today?   The box score indicates that he played the full game over there today.

You don't put a rookie on the bench. He needs to play everyday, hopefully soon on The Mets

Lutz is a righty 3B/1B. He wouldn't get at bats behind Wright and Satin. I think they should keep Brown up for right handed power off the bench and keep down the loser of the Duda/Davis. We don't need to carry two lefty first basemen.

He looked good. His exchanges around the bag looked good and I don't see any issue with his arm. The concern seems to be his range but his length helps make up for his foot speed. I think if they give him enough practice to feel comfortable he will be a legitimate option.

@1harris1  I dodn't see the game, but the box shows no errors and a hit.  Interested to know how he looked, as well, because Tejada booted another in the PSL game.

@slainte2 The more I see Satin, the more I like him.  Doesn't look pretty (except for his eyebrows haha), but he always manages to get productive hits and keep the Mets in an inning.

Brown is an excellent bench player and that's where he stays. I've always been put off by the anger directed at him by the loonies on the blog, some of it racial in nature btw.

@mikesml  I think Matsuzaka and either Montero or Mejia will make the rotation if Niese is out.  We need Lannan's lefty arm in the bullpen.  He can spot start.

Really good power-pinch hitter, mediocre outfielder. Not an infielder.
