Valdespin was 'suspended' for his failure to follow team rules. To my knowledge, he did 'not' violate any substances, but rather he did not follow FONZIEs directions.

Not 1st time in his life, nor do I feel it will be his last.

Was producing well, but CHARACTER outweighs all in the Mets Organization. They do 'not' condone negative behavior traits as stated with McGraw.

I can also say it wasn't tobacco, MJ, or drinking.

That really explains the early leave from the game. Atleast it wasn't nothing SERIOUS serious.

Maybe something to do with Flores!? :shock:

"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Most likely Valdespin will be sent to a SHORT-SEASON to teach him that 'he' isn't above the organization.

Sad but true. Talent is there, mind isn't.

Holding out Valdespin until mid-June would be a bad move, imho. Suspend the kid for a week or two and then either give him his 2b job back, or let him platoon with Satin. Sitting him for seven weeks and then letting him play for a short-season team (at his age) just doesn't make sense. Furthermore, it will create a logjam at the lower levels.. Guys like Alonzo Harris, Miguel Tejada, Kyle Suire, poossibly Ran Van Gurp, and other June draftees will occupy those lower-level middle-infield positions.

I think the Mets are more about CHARACTER than worrying about development with him specifically.

That's all I'll say!

But, this is pretty much the same across the board in our system.

Character, Character, Character!

Don't have, they will try to get rid of you!

Unless he pulled a Burgos, what could Valdespin have done to deserve a two month suspension?
