    Well that was quick. Dodgers trade d’Arnaud out of NL to Rays. So much for first base or left field in LA.
    Maybe, but it says something that two great organizations were all over d'Arnaud once the Mets released him. A three homer game a week ago, and now a grand slam today. He has an OPS of about .830 with the Rays over 150+ PA. But is anyone really surprised?

    I also wouldn't be surprised if poor injury management was responsible for much of the time he lost with the Mets, and his health improves now.

    Halfway decent article by Sherman today, discussing how poorly d'Arnaud was handled, and how it's the symptom of a larger problem:

    The one thing he doesn't mention is the "win now" mentality the Mets usually have is a sham and a scam. Fred's been cynically sprinkling washed up names on the roster for many years, while ignoring gaping chasms. The goal is never to "win now". It's to con gullible and/or casual fans into buying tickets, while not spending on top players or the organizational infrastructure to find and develop them.

      I say good for TDA.

      Any player should feel fortunate to get away from this mess
