As expected, the Mets designated Angel Berroa for assignment as Anderson Hernandez made his way to San Diego. At this point Berroa just isn’t a Major League player. I know that he was the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year. But something must have happened to him along the way because I just don’t see the talent there.

In 14 games with the Mets he hitting .148 with 1 double, 2 RBI’s, and 3 BB’s. He also had 2 errors in 8 games that he played at shortstop.

This move makes room on the roster for Hernandez. Expect him to take over second base until Luis Castillo‘s ankle is healed from his fall down the dugout steps. We may even see him play some shortstop when Castillo gets back.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
