Needs some plate discipline, strikes out too much and does not walk at all. Has some pop in his bat and very good fielding and athletic ability. He is an interesting player. Murphy needs to hit .300 if he wishes to stay at 2B, he offers no power so .300 is necessary. Murph's range is not good and it becomes more noticeable when you see the balls that Valdespin has in hip pocket. He might have a future here.

He's turning out to be Terry Collins's favorite utility guy, playing second and short as well as left and right field, but he hardly ever plays at short because of poor defense. He could (maybe should) play second every day, but he could also be a good fourth outfielder if Hairston doesn't come back next year. He started off slow at the big league level but now he's catching on.

His histrionics have been amusing as well. Howie Rose mentioned two incidents that I can remember- one was wiping his eyes on second base because he just hit a dream double to drive in a run, the other one was before a game in Tampa Bay where he flagged down Evan Longoria and asked him to get Fernando Rodney for him. Say what?

He was also part of the first Mets all-homegrown lineup since 1971, which was Niese, Thole, Davis, Murphy, Wright, Tejada, Duda, Nieuwenhuis, and Valdespin on April 26, 2012 and again with Dillon Gee pitching yesterday, July 7.

All in all, he's an exciting Mets rookie. I hope he plays as much as possible. I like when he hits home runs.

Not only does he have a cool name, he adds a lot of spark and energy to the Mets!! 3 pinch-hit home runs says a lot!!

Have seen enough to know that at best he is a bench player.

I went to school in Delaware so watched games with the Phillies broadcasters. They wondered if Valdespin was going to shorten his swing with 2 strikes. I screamed NO at my tv.

Jordany Valdespin should be the starting left fielder for Opening Day. He brings a lot to the table. I see Reyes in him, maybe not as fast.

I have to add one thing about Jordany after seeing the last post.

I remember during the '10 season, when most Met fans were lamenting the impeding departure of Jose Reyes, I went to and looked at the minor league shortstops in the Mets system at the time.

Reuben Tejada was already the heir-apparent (for what reason I don't know- maybe his defense) but I remember discovering Jordany's minor league numbers for the first time and wondering, why isn't this guy our next shortstop? He could be just like Reyes.

Fast forward to 2013. I'm watching him in spring training, and thinking: trade that bum Tejada so Jordany can play every day at shortstop.

Correction: it was during the 2011 season: His numbers at Binghamton that year while primarily a shortstop- 15 homers, 51 RBIs, and 33 steals.

I know he's a hot dog, but I can't help getting excited about him, especially if he develops some plate discipline.

In summation, I think he has a good chance of being worthy of Mookie Wilson's uniform number (#1) if he matures and gets a chance to play every day.

Has a world of talent, but needs to tone down his attitude. Acts like he's been playing at this level for years. Tuck in your shirt, put your pocket back in your pants. Play like you know how to and respect the game.

Just like the Ghost of Christmas Present in "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" when he said "I see a empty stool with a crutch next to the fireplace". As I gaze into my crystal baseball: " I see Jordany playing right field for the Long Island Ducks in 2014 or returning to Citi Field: As the short order cook at either BLUE SMOKE or SHAKE SHACK!!!

Jordany has been suspended 50 games by Bud Selig for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. He has a million-dollar talent but a 10-cent brain, this guy could've been an All-Star and maybe lead the Mets to a World Series title in the near future! Most likely played his last game in the Mets system; he'll be lucky to get a job with the Long Island Ducks! SAD, SAD, SAD.

Well Valdespin just got a 50-game suspension and his time with the Mets just might be over. I was impressed with Valdespin's power last year, but his maturity issues have been well documented and you can't throw a tantrum in front of your manager and GM like he did in his most recent demotion. He seems to be all about himself and needs to understand a few things. I hope he uses his suspension to train hard in the weight room and become a better person inside.
