@CaliSoxFanViaSWside @Squirmin' for Yermin and me were lobbying for him to get ABs in 2019 when we were parading out garbage like Yonder, Matt Skole, Palka, AJ Reed, etc. It's such a joke he didn't get burn then or in 2020.

The same scouts watching AJ Reed in the minors were also watching Yermin, and all of them were reporting to Hahn.  Ditto for the rest of that group.  And don't forget Delmonico.  We have some problems.

I'll reserve judgement on Vaughn for now. I feel like he's pressing a bit.

I mean he’s clearly better than this, you can see this is a well built swing, but he is totally outmatched by what he’s seeing right now.

He looked good the first two games and had good contact but now he is pressing and lost.

The one who let a throw from third get passed him earlier tonight and let two runs score? :)

This is actually Yasmani Grandal wearing a Mets uniform.

It's infuriating he wasn't given a real chance in either of the last 2 seasons.

Especially considering we had a blackhole in the DH spot.

he's just a good hitter, some guys just don't overthink their at bats

Vaughn is the complete opposite so far

 

He is definitely up there trying not to fail.  He is jumping on the first pitch and is just off of it by a bit.   The minute he goes down a strike, its over.  Maybe getting the first base knock will fix this.  But he is way off right now.

This is a good point. It's astonishing to me, honestly.

Man the level of play on defense this year has been awful all around the Majors.

Vaughn getting some reps in Charlotte might not be the worst thing for his development.

Is it too late for the Vaughn service time thingy?

You can always send him down, just burns a minor league option.

At this rate seems pretty obvious if this continues, Vaughn goes down when Engel comes up.

I think if you send him down he doesn't accrue service time right?

Mercedes has been good, but Delmonico looked like guy for 5 games at one point.

This awful vaughn experiment feels like the kind of desperation move you make after polling soxtalk

Correct, it stops as long as he’s sent down.

Foregone conclusion with Yermin doing Yermim things.

C'mon TLR.  Why is Rodon still out there when he has looked like he ran out of gas an inning ago.

This, which is why I didn't understand the gnashing to start the year of keeping him up. Makes more sense for him to play at Charlotte once the AAA season begins, and he can play for a solid stretch. Can also play LF everyday if that's going to be a thing they will try beyond self induced WS emergencies.

Delmonico was actually good for 100 ABs in 2017.

I really didn't think Rodon had 98 mph in him.
