Another Preposterous Idea

An article by posted on August 31, 2011

If last week’s frightening thought of putting Mike Pelfrey in the closer role wasn’t bad enough, here is something just as baffling from Andy Martino of the Daily News

Imperfect circumstances call for creative solutions, and in recent weeks the Mets have kicked around many ideas for 2012. In that spirit, a well-placed front office source said it is “a possibility” that the Mets will move Jason Bay to center field next year. 

The mere thought of such a preposterous idea tells me that Martino’s team sources never stray too far from the kitchen area at the rear of Shake Shack.

Nobody would ever confuse Martino of being a Mensa, but come on already, lets get real here, Martino.

I’m not going to waste my time on a one thousand word diatribe detailing why putting Jason Bay in centerfield would be a recipe for disaster, because those of you who watch the games already know why. But suffice it to say that anyone who matters in the Mets front office would laugh at the suggestion of putting Bay in center. The only place this front office wants to put Bay, is out to pasture.
