It seems as though Asdrubal Cabrera has a message for the many Mets fans calling for Amed Rosario to be called up and take his place.
But, Cabrera isn’t telling this message with his words. He’s using his bat instead.
Yes, his defense still hasn’t been the strongest, I know. We all know. We saw it in Monday night’s game against the Chicago Cubs where both he and Reyes miscommunicated an easy infield popup, collided, and neither one of them caught the ball.
Mets fans quickly took to social media at that point to post all about how Rosario needed to be called up.
Cabrera took notice. Well, he actually couldn’t because he was in the midst of playing in the game. But, it seemed like he knew.

At his next at-bat, Cabrera hit a solo home run. Not too shabby right? Sounds like some great compensate for the above error?
Well, it gets better.
At his second at-bat, Cabrera hit another solo home run.
Two homers. One game. It’s almost like Cabrera is trying to prove himself, and fight for his spot on the team.
Yes, I know the Mets have already stated that Rosario will not be called up anytime soon. But fans are still strongly advocating for Rosario to come up to the majors. Cabrera has to be aware of this… and he’s sending a message to everyone, through his bat.
It seems as though almost any time Cabrera has an error out in the field, he later compensates for it with his bat. Monday night was quite the impressive show from him, and hopefully one that will continue — just without the errors in the future please.
Cabrera’s contract is up at the end of this season. Even if he technically doesn’t have a spot right now to fight for, he needs to dominant this season if he wants to make the team’s decision a little harder… or, probably, more realistically, wants a nice little price tag in free agency.
And of course, need to note that we can’t forget that there is a team option for next year obviously should they choose to exercise it.
