It's going to happen, right?

Not with Harrison and Leury on the roster and Moncada back this week.

Not with Yolbert in the org

He would be tied for 6th on the team in walks currently.. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at that stat.

He's left handed and he's Moncada's idol. That's literally the only 2 things he has going for him at this point. But hey, if this means less Leury, less Reese McGuire and less Harrison, then fuck it, stick him in the DH spot. :lol:

How does his money situation work?  Obviously no one will trade for him with the money he's owed.  So if he ends up just being released, the Mets pay his salary, right?  Then a team can sign him?

If he clears waivers, which at that salary is 100% going to happen, he can sign with any team he wants. That team pays only the veteran minimum and the Mets pay the rest.

Correct. Once he becomes a free agent, he signs for league minimum. 

Pujols was traded last year, though I think the Angels paid all but league minimum in that deal so they could get something back for him.

I would take him for the league minimum.  Hard to be worse than our current DH options.  Can he play a more passable RF than Sheets?   Only half kidding with that last question.

He'll be signed by someone for sure.  I don't see the Sox doing so, more out of stubbornness and sticking with Harrison, Leury, and Sheets.  I don't think he's as bad as his stats are right now, but he's obviously not the guy he used to be.  However, even half the guy he used to be would be better than a few of the guys we have now.

I wouldn't be excited about it. But you can never have enough depth.

Pretty much would have to send Sheets down...which isn't out of the realm of possibility at this point.

Would be very on-brand for this org to bring a washed up former star on board

As I posted yesterday, it is worth a shot for 30 days to see what he can do  since hopefully the warmer weather will be coming. My only concern is that he doesn't take away DH at bats from Vaughn. Limited financials involved and a good clubhouse guy. Absolutely worth a shot

Plus if Cano sucks, he can be released and added to the banner or just replace Ashe altogether if Cody's magic wears out.

2 PED suspensions. 39 years old. Pretty obvious he can't play anymore without the juice, and that's in his mind. It would be taking ABs away from Harrision and Leury, so it makes it somewhat plausible, but chances are this guy is toast.

Harrison has been hitting better the last couple weeks. Want to see a larger sample size from him before considering other options. If nothing else he's very good defensively.

If he could still play passable defense at 2B, I'd take a chance on him for the min.  But he can't.

I'd give him a milb deal and let him try to get the bat going in Charlotte purely as a depth play.  But I wouldn't give him an mlb job right off the bat.  Yolbert should get a shot before Cano.  

That being said, this feels very White Soxy, so I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest.  In fact, I mentioned in right away in the roster cuts thread yesterday when the dfa news came out.

That outfielder who came over from the Cards (always hurt) hailing from Hahn's suburban high school might actually be more deserving than Asche. 

Or AJ Reed, perhaps.

Depending on how bad it gets, could go with Jose Paniagua.

Nope

I am going to guess it doesn't happen just because the Mets have to have been trying to give him away all winter, but no one touched him.

it's on brand for the sox + doesn't solve 2b again, so itll happen.

It'll be Robby Alomar 2.0.

Or would it be 3.0?

Either way, it's bad.
