The New York Mets addition of Jed Lowrie brings infield depth to an infield that was already pretty deep, which begs the question: what are they going to do with all these players?
In fact, some of the players he represented still play in the league. If you’re curious about which ones I suggest you take a look around the Mets infield, which just added another ex-Brodie client to the ranks by signing veteran second baseman Jed Lowrie to a 2-year deal.
It’s not super likely that Lowrie, Robinson Cano and Todd Frazier will make a habit of talking about how their old agent is their new boss while taking infield warmups next season. It’s not even super likely that we’ll see them all out on the field at the same time.
Lowrie is joining what was already an embarrassment of infield riches, and it’s not entirely clear how the Mets plan to use all of the talents they’ve acquired. Is the intention here to have a ton of infield depth? Or, is this the first step in what will be another big trade by Van Wagenen?
These are answers that only the Mets front office really knows for sure (though it’s possible they don’t have any idea either), but there is enough info out there for some well-supported speculation. Let’s take a look at how the Mets might put this puzzle together.
