Mets weren't happy with Mookie's OF positioning...

As the only former outfielder on the the staff Mookie Wilson's primary defensive responsibility was the outfield. 

Apparently the Mets weren't happy with the way Mookie was positioning the outfield.  Not sure if I even noticed the outfield out of position, it seemed like the infield was always out of position.

 If the Mets were unhappy with the outfield defense then whether we like him or not they should move on from Mookie, since we have such a young inexperienced group of outfielders...

One Mets source said that the team had concerns about Wilson's work with the outfielders, including their in-game positioning. In particular, Lucas Duda seemed out of position several times while learning to play right field last season. source Daily News
