Mets hire an Alderson associate


Tony DeFrancesco has been hired to replace Pedro Lopez whose one season in Las Vegas after dominating at earlier levels resulted in being 30 games under .500.

It's interesting that they chose to put a short leash on Lopez, yet let Collins languish for seven years, 5 of which were losing seasons.

DeFrancesco was one of the folks I'd suggested as a manager for the big club, so I am happy to see him in AAA even with the guilt by association of having worked for Alderson in Oakland.

Re:


yeah, I thought that Lopez was being groomed to get promoted with Rosario/[sign in to see URL] when both put up low OBP at the majors in a few at bats, Sandy deemed that they hadn't gotten the proper training to be ready for the majors (so it must be whoever was their manager for the past 2 seasons)

Re:


I call BS if that's the Mets' justification. Dom Smith in his two years with Lopez had OBP marks of .362 and .386 (better in Las Vegas). Amed Rosario had .392 and .367. Do you want to know when it got worse? It happened under the influence of the loser skipper and the hitting coach who is apparently under consideration for manager.

But it's Lopez' fault???

Yes, I haven't heard the other shoe dropping -- where the Washington Nationals are going now that they're being evicted from Syracuse.
