Time for an Endy Reunion?


News broke yesterday that Endy Chavez was released by the Kansas City Royals, and it made me wonder if the Mets might consider adding him to the mix.

It kind of goes against everything this team represents. We are in a youth movement right now. Although Chavez holds a special place in our hearts for one of the best catches we’ve ever seen a Met make, I think it’s just not the right mix. If he’s brought in to serve as organizational depth, then so be it. There’s no harm in handing out minor league contracts.

Last season, Chavez had 169 AB with the Orioles, and he managed just 32 hits, 8 extra-base hits and no triples.

He played an integral role in the run to the 2006 playoffs for the Mets, as he hit .306 and stole 12 bases. The Mets have young guys that fill that role. They’re not built to be a stolen base team, but more a fundamentally sound team that does the little things right.

If you ask the Co-Owner of the Daily Stache, Matt Falkenbury, the Chavez play doesn’t matter in history, because, as we know, the Mets ultimately lost the game. The names Aaron Heilman and Yadier Molina will forever haunt Mets’ fans brains.

Do you think the Mets should bring in Chavez? Tell us in the comments below.
