The Mets are experimenting, and its time to stop. Last nights game was possibly the worst matchup of the year for the Mets, so it’s fair to be critical. The Mets Chris Young is in one of his longest funks of the year. Collins put him in the lineup batting 6th, against a right handed pitcher. Am I missing something? Collins is the father of lefty-righty match-ups, and all of a sudden to his weakest player, batting under 200, in a crucial game and with better outfielders waiting on the bench, you play CY? This makes very little sense, in fact it makes NO SENSE. I’ve watched Young, hold up a roster spot that could be vacated by Kirk, den Dekker or Josh Satin, but no.. Chris Young. Valverde and Farnsworth both had to look over their shoulders and see young players, and they both weren’t having dream seasons (era’s in the 4’s) but it’s ok, they had no-frills deals, contracts worth less than a million because of mediocre seasons in past. Why was Chris Young offered a 7 million dollar deal when he hasn’t hit 230 in 3 years! That was a horrible experiment! The Mets should have signed Marlon Byrd, because at least he had a good 2013.
Opinion: The Mets need to stop experimenting
