I would love to see Flores make it to the majors in a Met uniform, but given his lack of a true position u here, Sandy should really try and cash-in on his great year this year, and get a prospect of equal value, at a position of need- like outfield.
He could also package the kid up with Dickey. Some teams might be a bit less reluctant to part with prospects for the 38 year Dickey, if they are getting some youth back in return in the deal.
some players do. duda and parnell have refused to play winterball in the past.
when fmart played winterball he ended up getting hurt.
valdespin is playing this winter. other than being suspended from his team for a while for being the mental midget he is, dont know how he is doing.
i still think that he can't be much worse defensively at 2b than murphy is
if he can be murphy at 2b then i think his offense will actually be worth it
'he does not have the ability to play the outfield'
i have read that his lack of footspeed would work against him in the OF, but i dont know if i've ever read he does not have the ability to play the OF.
the book on him is he's slow. slow guys play OF in the majors, especially if they hit .300 with pop.
one of our problems right now is that our system has been so bad for so long that it gets taken out on wilmer...mind boggling to me that he isnt in the top 100
trading him now would be dumb...about to have huge breakout season in AAA
could be a better chip in the future or just a player for the mets
Somewhere out there... there has to be a team with a player similar to Flores who happens to play the outfield. A team with a logjam at outfield and a hole at third base.
From such things win-win trades are made.
thats the problem....theres nothing really that i want from the angels
im even a little weary of trumbo...i could see him fading extremely quickly, though his power is undeniable...in many ways hes like a right handed ike davis....both could develop into stars or they could be the next chris duncan
i have zero interest in bourjos....the most overrated 4th of in baseball...
they have zero prospects that are any where near mlb ready w/ significant promise...you have kaleb cowart, who is promising but still a few years away and a 3b prospect...hes got some speed and a strong arm so maybe he can transition to rf but its still a bit questionable if his bat will play there...either way, id say hes 2 full seasons away right now so not much of a help in the near future
cj cron can't play any position other than 1st base b/c of his arm and as a 22 year old in A+ was a bit old for the league...but hes still a top 1b prospect, one thing we don't really need their top of prospect, now that trout is up w/ the team, is kole calhoun who is a nice player but i dont know if im that interested
im not going to lie, i might be willing to deal dickey if we got back a combo of trumbo & cowart but i dont see that happening
