I really wish that TC would let Lagares hit 2nd in the order vs. lefties. His BA has been steadily improving each month. Murph really struggles vs. lefties and really is a poor fit in the 2 hole, anyways. Give the kid a look there in the best spot in the lineup. He'd also add additional speed up top with EY.

No joke, the way Byrd is playing now, he's going to at worst net us draft picks as a free agent. That should allow us to demand a better prospect.
Note that I said that the Mets might demand a blue chip prospect, not necessarily actually get one. However, as the Mets announcers noted, Byrd is starting to pop up into some top 10 stat lists. They might get a team (and it only takes one) to blink and offer up a big time prospect like SF did a few years ago with Wheeler (who was a low A ball) for a Beltran rental.
