Signed Joe Panik. Good move since Cano and Lowrie won’t be seen the rest of year
Not sure who was sent down

Big series at home this weekend vs Nats
Mets can really make a move taking the series
The Panik move is a no brainer.

There is no risk involved, only the possible reward if a change in scenery helps.

It's also nice to add his presence having won a championship before. Not bad to have around as this group starts a playoff push.

Is the Brad Brach move official as well? What is the availability of both of these guys this weekend?

Both are official.
kind of surprised Hech got the DFA but he and Guillorme are the same  
Eric on Li : 8/9/2019 3:17 pm : link
so it makes sense. Wonder how they will phase in Panik, I'd imagine he will be the starter. I'd love to see Guillorme get a few starts in a row while Panik gets acclimated but I don't expect that. My guess is that if they don't have a producing 2B by the time Nimmo comes back McNeil will just move there full time.

Panik in lineup tonight. Batting 8th

Apparently Hech was due a 1 million dollar roster bonus soon.
I wouldn't make this a bigger deal than it should

be, but it wipes out some small narratives about players and not wanting to play in Queens.

Brad Brach and Joe Panik both turned down multiple other offers to sign with the #Mets. They both said they simply couldn’t pass up on the chance to come here.

That says something.
i've abruptly gone from not caring about Panik to all in

really excited for this series against the nats.

Hate the DFA could age sent down Guillotine or DFA garbage Alther.

Hopefully won’t backfire

Tomorrow, if on roster. Ouch
Hech  
Gmanfandan : 8/9/2019 5:51 pm : link
He actually made more sense then keeping Guillorme - Panik is lefty version of Hech which makes Guillorme redundant

This one all about the benjamins
I think Guillorme has more upside than Hech. Which isn't saying much.  
81_Great_Dane : 8/9/2019 6:38 pm : link
But at the moment, Guillorme and Hech are basically the same player. I don't see the attraction to Panik, another good field/no hit middle infielder, but at least he is a better fielder at 2nd base. That should help both Alonso and Rosario.

I still would rather see McNeill in the infield and a real centerfielder in the outfield, but that will probably have to wait until 2020.
Hech can play short and 3rd
