Welcome to the show, Wilmer Flores! The Mets thought they could get this news by us at night, huh…? Nope! I feel pretty excited about this. Wilmer Flores was having a great year in Triple-A with .322/.358/.532 slash. He ripped 36 doubles, four triples, and 15 home runs while driving in 86 runs. His monster year is about to continue with the Mets, where he looks to make a big splash…good luck!
