Angel back in the two-hole — hooray! BTW did anyone expect Willie Harris to be the Mets’ everyday left fielder?
While Bay out, basically makes sense.
What if Bay is out until June?
This Harris / Hairston combo reminds me of 2005, when Miguel Cairo and Marlon Anderson combined for 550+ ABs for reasons unknown.
As to Evans, the guy has been around for awhile, so you’d think we would know if he is MLB ready by now. If he is useful, I’m not sure why he cleared waivers, as he would have to again (I read) if they need to send him back at some point.
And you got it though, duda could have played everyday for a month. Too bad he didn’t. Maybe Sandy will tell us 2012 is de ja vu of 2011.
Rot or not, and it wasn’t always rot, Evans had big league experience. I don’t know why no one took him off waivers. He is cheap and some teams can lose a veteran who can play various positions.
