Mets Demote Michael Conforto, Promote Brandon Nimmo
I love Conforto, seems to be a great guy, plenty of potential, had a very nice 2015, got off to a great start this season and who didn't love that throw he made the other day to throw out Emilio Bonifacio in Atlanta for an inning-ending DP? But damn, if Confronto hasn't been slumping at the plate lately, especially against left-hand pitching. And you can't just bench him. So sending him down and giving him consistent at-bats in the minors so he can hopefully work out his issues and come back later, while giving Brandon Nimmo a shot definitely seems like the wise move right now.
