I really mean it as this, in my mind Mercado will hurt us in the corners right now and I am not sure if one off season will make him improve enough in the corners so that he won't be doing us going forward next season there, while in CF I feel he can develop with the time to be above average with his natural athleticism and seems like natural potential there. I guess in my mind lets just use simple numbers, if Zimmer is a 90 (out of 100) in CF and an 80 in the corners while Mercado is in 80 in CF and a 65 in the corners, I would rather have the 80 in both spots not 90 in one and 65 in the other. Thats just how I feel about it, but I get your logic too, I just do not trust Mercado in the corner positions at all next season and until he proves me wrong otherwise I will keep that opinion of him.Absolutely, and if we didn't already have a great defensive CF in Zimmer, I'd be more than willing to give him time to grow there. He certainly has the physical tools.
But Mercado isn't a plus in CF, at least not yet. Downgrading your defense in center to upgrade in a corner makes no sense to me.
(though eventually I would like to see the actually zone ratings you guys like to use on both guys to see how big of a difference there is between the two guys since the basic numbers don't actually support a large difference like you are saying).
2020 is to me the year we have to win it all as well, so I am sure the coaches will make the best decision in the end.
