The subject of Nick Evans (who?) is a sensitive one around here and while trying to conquer the internets today I found something interesting. According to Adam Rubin (he undoubtedly lobbied for this information,) Nick Evans is out of Minor League options after this season. Since we basically know that he will never be a regular for the Mets, what is the best course of action? It's not like the Mets can simply stash him to use against left handers as a DH and the outfield spots are pretty much set for years to come. Are we content with him being a bench player or would it be more worthwhile in the long haul to shop him and see if The Mets can get any kind of value or perhaps package him with another prospect to get something useful? I really don't know what the best course of action is, because Nick is a righty bat on a team that needs more help from the left side. At the same time, it would be nice to give him an opportunity to prove himself in the Bigs for more than a quick glance but there is a big prospect already playing his position. Ultimately I feel like it's going to come down to the missing man and the Irish Hammer and I think we all know who is going to remain on the team. I'm fairly confident that he won't be able to clear waivers in 2011, so I think the best thing to do would be to trade Nick and try and get something out of him.. maybe someone else will see what we all do.
