This week, let’s explore the possible shortstop options available for the Mets. Jed Lowrie just completed a down year with the Oakland Athletics in which he hit 245 with 6 HR’s and 50 RBI’s. My hope is that in 2015 he returns to his 2013 form. In 2013, Lowrie hit 290 with 90 RBI’s. Is Lowrie a good sign? No. And frankly, I’m not sure that this is a route the Mets want to go down. Grabbing old-average outfielder is never a smart idea, its a sign of a team in need of veterans. There is no lack of veteran presence on the Mets, so signing Lowrie would not be smart.
