Ben Zobrist is on the Mets radar, but he really shouldn’t be

Ben Zobrist sounds more like Daniel Murphy’s replacement than the Mets new shortstop. Zobrist, the ultra-utility guy, has been with the Tampa Bay Rays since 2006, and in those nine seasons, Ben has played eight positions, and is a two time all star. Simply put, Zobrist is a guy anyone would want on their team, the only problem is, Zobrist is an excuse to not sign a  real shortstop, and most importantly, not re-sign Daniel Murphy, something the Mets probably won’t do anyway.

Ben Zobrist

Don’t get the wrong impression, I really do like Ben Zobrist, he has a fast bat, and will hit 280 for you with no problem, I just don’t think he’s the right fit for the Mets, and the cost for him will be the same as it would be for Castro or Tulo, two actual shortstops with more talent. Honestly, I don’t think the Mets have spoken to Zobrist’s agents yet, and I highly doubt that this will ever come to surface.
