Moment from PSL: I got, I got it, I got it, I think

Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer

The Mets did pop-up drills today, practicing calling for fly balls from a pitching machine launched around the infield and outfield.

Josh Satin stood at first base today with Lucas Duda and Ike Davis, while Omar Quintanilla backed up second and Anthony Seratelli worked with Ruben Tejada at shortstop.

In one scenario, a ball went up way high and shallow, estimated to land between the pitcher’s mound and home plate. Daniel Murphy charged hard, his hat flew off and he yelled, “I got it, I got it, I got it, I think,” which would make for a great title to someone’s autobiography.

Can we please do something to get rid of Omar Q?  I would rather Tovar for his incredible defense. I do not see any need for Q at all, really.

Wouldn't be surprise if Murphy ends Wright's career on a pop up.  The guy is dangerous around the infield.

@helloboy  Tovar is 22 and aside from his 7 games with the Mets, he was in AA almost all of last season. If he's playing anywhere, he'll be in AAA which could get just as complicated with the Flores situation. Fact is, Tovar will be given a chance to develop in AAA rather than sit on the bench in the bigs. Q may not be the best but the fact is his role should be a backup SS. Last season we literally had no one else so he had to start. This year, Tejada will get all of the playing time there.
