As expected two AAAA players cleared waivers yesterday and will report to AAA.
Both OF Jason Pridie and SP Tobi Stoner will be invited to Spring Training but are no longer taking up valuable 40 man roster spots. Neither at this point expect to figure into the opening day roster (if they do something went terribly wrong) and baring the unforeseen injury they will not even be next in line.
Last week there was an uproar that we should not be “losing” two valuable players at the cost of Castillo and Perez. Frankly like either of those two or not they have more talent even now than Pridie and Stoner who are and may never be major leaguers. Sorry. I know I want Luis and Ollie gone as bad as anyone but this is a great chance for Mets fans to show they are ready for the Alderson movement and show something we are not known for… PATIENCE.
