Poll Results: Mets First Base Outlook
A few days ago, my co-writer Danny Krieger wrote a nice post pitting the recently acquired Mike Jacobs against the incumbent Daniel Murphy.
I decided to do a quick 4-day poll to see what our readers thought about the Mets first base situation going into the 2010 season. Here are those results:
And the winner is…
Daniel Murphy is the overwhelming choice for our readers, more than doubling the support that Mike Jacobs received. As Danny pointed out in his post, Murphy had a higher batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage than Mike Jacobs.
Although I was hoping for a significant upgrade at first base this off season, I think the addition of Mike Jacobs was a good thing whether he wins the job or just a spot on the bench.
I am very curious to see how Murphy builds on last season and his 54 extra-base hits were still pretty impressive in his first full season.
