2013-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mike Baxter played fairly well last year in limited AB's. Your thoughts on him this year in a starting role ?
(Ernie from NYC)
I don't think that Baxter would be an everyday player on more than 2-3 other teams, but given the Mets' outfield situation, it's worth a shot. He could be productive in a placeholder platoon role. (Daniel Rathman)
