Of the many New York Mets who were unceremoniously dumped at the trade deadline this year, Tommy Pham has made a good case for himself as the best off of the bunch. After all, he and Max Scherzer are the only ones left standing, and Scherzer hasn't fared very well in his World Series starts, to say the least. Pham, on the other hand, cemented himself into the good graces of Dbacks fans when he went 4-4 in Game 2 of this World Series and could've had the opportunity to go 5-5, if it were for his insistence on letting friend and Arizona bench bat Jace Peterson get a turn at the plate.
It's absolutely possible that Pham's postseason performance has made enough of an argument for the Dbacks to re-sign him but, like with Evan Longoria, age has to be considered here. Pham is a 35 year old DH whose playing time has fluctuated throughout his career. He has flashes of brilliance and clearly can perform well under pressure, but he's inconsistent, and doesn't necessarily specialize in hitting for contact or for power.
The Dbacks shouldn't let a well-timed hot streak keep them from seeing the bigger picture going into next year. Even if letting Pham go would mean having to find a replacement bat at DH or restructure the infield a bit, it's only a slight risk they should heavily consider taking.
