 Every one thought Angel Pagan was the centerfielder when Carlos Beltran went down. At the begining of spring training Pagan was playing good baseball. Seem like his stats drop like a bad habit. In 11 games Pagan hitting 212 AVG. with 1 home run and four RBIs. Matthews Jr. is playing a steady outfield the whole spring. He hitting 344 AVG. with 2 home runs 4 RBI. 688 SLG AVG. and OBP 417. He could lead off or hit in the middle of the lineup. Mets lineup look better with Matthews Jr. in the middle of it. Much more power. From both sides of the plate. Remember who was his father was.
