It May Be Time for "The Kid"

Eric BrennerAnalyst IJuly 8, 2008

Yesterday on The Fan, Joe and Evan brought up an interesting point regarding the corner outfield spots for the New York Mets. There is a lot of uncertainty about the health of Ryan Church these days, and Moises Alou will be hurt again after seven at-bats, guaranteed.

So, with all of this, I agreed with Joe and Evan that it might be time to give F-Mart a chance. I don't want to hear any trade rumors regarding bringing in a corner outfielder. What a waste of time, money, and players that would be. The Mets have no shot at landing any big-time outfielder, or even a guy who could help us in the least.

So I say forget about bringing in Matt Holiday, and let's give the kid a shot, especially if the rumors of Ryan Church being shut down for the year are true.

If the Mets see themselves without Church and Alou goes on another DL stint, I don't see how they can't do this.

Any opinions?
