Even an average to below average bat is a huge upgrade in production. Mes hits lefty pitching well. Need a guy who hits well against RHP to make the tandem make more sense. Salty fits and he and Mes could probably platoon and bat 5th or 6th behind Bruce. I'd expect the position to combine for an OPS of around .775 with 25 HR with those two platooning.
    Yeah, definitely don't see Wieters as a fit.

    Career vL: .281/.344/.487
    Career vR: .244/.310/.393

    Personally, I think Mes is going to have a breakout year. But if we're looking for a platoon partner with Mes, he's definitely not it.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
