Collins Will Start Giving More Playing Time To Younger Players

This is getting creepy now… I feel like I’m being stalked… 🙂

Terry Collins spoke to Sandy Alderson this afternoon and effective immediately, the Mets manager will be playing the younger players more. A lot more…

Collins told reporters that Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Wilmer Flores specifically, will begin seeing more playing time and each of them are in tonight’s starting lineup.

I would imagine as soon as Chris Young gets released that Matt den Dekker will get called up and also receive some major playing time.

This afternoon I wrote that enough is enough and this charade about hunting a wild card has to stop. So let me end this post the way I ended that one…

The rest of the 2014 season should be open tryouts for 2015.
