The Mets Need an Outfield

If you have watched the New York Mets only a couple of times this year then you may be thinking that they have enough pieces to compete. However, if you are a devoted fan and watch every game, it is no mystery that they do not have an outfield. When the Mets take the field every day, they jog out a group of 3 outfielders who are either older and past their time or outfielders who belong in the minor leagues. Newly signed from the Astros, Rick Ankiel is the only one who is producing. Ankiel has come up with big hits so far since he has been apart of this team. The only down side is that Ankiel is 33 years old. Another starter, Marlon Byrd, is 35 years old. Names like Juan Lagares, Mike Baxter and Jordany Valdespin have shown that they are not every day players. Even Lucas Duda is proving that he is nothing more then a back up. Duda is batting .226 with 8 home runs and 14 RBI's. That seems impossible. That means that Duda is hitting home runs with no one on base and is not driving in runs any other way. This is a problem for the Mets. Aside from Wright, Murphy and Buck, no one on this team has been producing anything at the plate. Terry Collins and the rest of the staff better be thinking of a way to find some major league outfielders instead of jogging out minor league players every game. If they can not think of a way, then it will continue to be a lot of pain and suffering for Mets' fans.
