DateQuestionAnswer
2009-04-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on the Mets signing Sheffield? I still don't see how he fits on an NL team, especially one with a flyball pitching staff and spacious outfield.
(Jessica from NYC)
My first reaction was positive, but the more I thought about it, the more I wasn't sure if Sheffield is a better player, right now, than Nick Evans is. You're not signing a stat line or career achievements; you're signing the guy, and it's not clear to me that they have the better guy.

Lightning round. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dan Murphy and Nick Evans, can they work as a platoon in 2009?
(tremont from LI, NY)
I like the chances of it panning out. They're both doing solid work, it's a credit to the Mets' system that they've managed to squeeze this kind of value out of it, and the savings involved might make getting Mark Teixeira that much more affordable. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Dan Murphy and Nick Evans a viable platoon in LF for next year?
(tremont from LI, NY)
That's an excellent question...I highly doubt the Mets would go that route, but Murphy certainly has been extremely impressive so far in his approach at the plate. He's seeing 4.19 pitches per plate appearance, which would rank ninth in the majors if he had enough at-bats to qualify. Throw that in with the fact that he's one of just three position players from the 2006 draft to make it the majors thus far, and he was a 13th rounder to boot, and he might just turn into a special player. (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Hypothetical: Mets send Nick Evans, Mike Carp, and another prospect for Ibanez and Rhodes.
(Trade Offer Man from Trade Offer Land)
I think the Mets would be overpaying. I'd trade Evans OR Carp and a lesser prospect. (John Perrotto)
