Howard Megdal On Manuel, Castro, and Santos


"The best comparison for Santos is to a 2008 feel-good story, Argenis Reyes. Reyes had a slick glove at second base and posted an .808 OPS in his first 33 at-bats, belying his .674 career minor league OPS. By the end of 2008, Reyes’s OPS was down to .504. Almost certainly, Santos will suffer the same fate. The difference was, the Mets didn’t have a hitter like Castro to play second base."
