As expected the Mets have optioned Justin Turner to AAA. Sandy said as much in a recent interview during a game earlier this week (can’t recall which one). He made note that Turner’s option was huge in the decision making process as was Emaus’ Rule 5 status.
Now the question is Hu who will be manning 2B for the Mets come opening day. According to most reports, the Mets are set to name Emaus the starting 2B with Murphy as a BU IF and cutting Luis Hernandez. However, with this new regime can anyone be sure? I look forward to the next few days to see what this group has to offer the 2011 work hard or go home Mets.
