A ridiculous position change

Okay, so maybe there aren’t an abundance of Mets fans who want to see yet another position change. However, I have come across my share of Twitter lurkers who believe even more members of this ball club need to move to another spot.

Between 2018 and 2019, there was one non-Twitter-troll who appeared completely serious in his attempt to plead a case for moving Brandon Nimmo to third base. His logic: Nimmo is athletic.

Aren’t most athletes athletic?

The Mets don’t listen to their fans online. It’s a good thing they don’t. Nimmo is not a third baseman by any stretch of the imagination nor should any logically-sound person believe otherwise.

More recently, I’ve seen it proposed that the Mets do two equally as ridiculous things with third base. This includes moving Pete Alonso across the diamond to the hot corner “because he can move well” or possibly even taking Wilson Ramos from behind the plate and putting him there. The latter is to solve the disconnect between The Buffalo and Noah Syndergaard.

Quite frankly, I’m not sure how creating a new problem solves another.

The Mets have more than enough guys out of position. Others, like J.D. Davis, don’t even have one. Of all the crazy thoughts and ideas a baseball fan can have, moving Ramos to third base at this point in his career is near the top of the list. A team can single-handedly beat them by simply bunting down the third base line a dozen times each game.

Next. What if the Mets never re-signed Yoenis Cespedes?
