Rising Apple Report, Ep. 41 – Arbitration, Jose Abreu & Willets Point

The Rising Apple Report reported at its regularly scheduled time of 6:30PM ET on Wednesday with myself, Danny Abriano, Mike Lecolant and Andrew Battifarano ready to discuss Matt Harvey‘s Tommy John Surgery, the Willets Point development plan, the possibility of the Mets signing Cuban-Defector Jose Abreu and the Mets’ arbitration-eligible players.

Leave it to the beat to drop “Mets will not pursue Jose Abreu” basically immediately after we were done with the podcast, but that doesn’t take away from the awesome debate and conversation we had regarding the player and the Mets’ 1st base situation.

You’re almost done with the workweek, folks. Have it go that much quicker with the best half-hour of Mets talk on the internet airwaves!

    We’ve given Ike Davis ample chances and while I liked him initially, I have observed that he “whines” about ball/strike calls on a consistent basis. I have not seen a single MLB player complain to the HP Umpire to the extent Ike does. I think the constant whining speaks volumes and he would likely be better off in a small city market.

    Too early to tell about EY or Lagares’ offense as the depleted lineup did not help anyone’s BA. If we can get 2-3 hitters in the lineup, you just might see a significant improvement in both players BA’s. Look at how many middle of the road players have come to teams like the Yanks, Red Sox or Cards and all of a sudden became .280-.290 hitters.
