Struggling Met Eduardo Escobar confident he will regain All-Star form
Eduardo Escobar isn’t going to ask to sit on the Mets bench for a game or two just to clear his head.
“I think me saying, ‘Give me a couple days off’ is essentially giving up,” Escobar said
Escobar is mired in a 4-for-33 slump, heightened by leaving nine runners on base as the Mets suffered a two-game sweep against Houston.
“I can’t really say why the results haven’t been there,” Escobar said.
The question the Mets must answer is whether this is a case of an 11-year veteran who should be trusted to figure out his struggles.
The alarming alternative is that it’s the beginning of a steep drop-off just one year after his first All-Star selection.
Mets manager Buck Showalter mentioned considering giving Escobar a mental break.
