The New York Mets are one of the best teams in all of baseball this year but that doesn’t mean they don’t have their faults. All season long, fans have been asking the front office to add an impact bat to take over the DH spot, but the Mets added minimal talent at the deadline. They acquired three bats, Tyler Naquin from The Cincinnati Reds to spot start some games in the outfield and two players to platoon as the designated hitter. Daniel Vogelbach from the Pittsburg Pirates to face all right-handed pitchers and Darin Ruf from the San Francisco Giants to bat against all lefties.

These three players have had some decent moments in the orange and blue thus far, but they aren’t bringing what the fans want as their team goes on a potential championship run. For some reason, fans are asking for the team to bring back former Met, Michael Conforto.

Personally, I don’t get it. For Michael Conforto to be eligible for any post-season games, he would need to sign today which is August 31st. Why would we want to sign a player who hasn’t played all year long and he’s coming off a recent injury which required surgery? The answer for the Mets in 2022 isn’t the signing of Scooter in 2022 but for some fans, he is exactly what the Amazin’s need to win their first championship since 1986.

    I like calling up Vientos, but stop with the Conforto talk

  • @SandyKazmir

    Yeah, just throw the guy $2.5 million for a month of play. Rookies who played a full season don’t see half that type of money!

  • @AaronPYork

    Please put your phone down. Thanks.

  • @LindorRBW

    Yes, he should go rest up for 2023 in Seattle, I agree!

  • @ItsStillWilpm

    Cause experimenting with a guy who hasn’t seen Major League pitching all year is a good idea in a pennant race.

  • @Brady_Novak18

    Technically it would be a 1 month deal where he’ll play a majority of the time in the minors to ramp back up. Bad idea
