"but that something should be in ADDITION to bringing back Hairston."
He said sticking point with Hairston is playing time, so doing both probably not an option.
Even the Sandy apologists have to admit this whole thing is becoming comical. I actually do agree with Francessa's general point which is you kind of have to field a team out there.
Even if it seems very obvious we're going nowhere you have to at least try. We can't go out there with an AA outfield. It's ridiculous.
I mean can we really spend NOTHING? I just can't believe that, sorry.
This is whole debacle is fraudulent.
“We’re still confronted with 2013, and I’m not happy with the preparation for 2013,” Sandy explained.>>>>
he has had only 2 months to do something for 2013. not sure why he is getting down on himself for doing absolutely nothing for 2013 to this point.
The problem with an Upton deal is fan perception is often a crucial factor. You usually need one big name top prospect to headline the deal. That'd have to be Wheeler.
I think the Mets have the prospects outside Wheeler to make a trade for Upton, but they're probably going to need a headliner prospect to sell it to the fans.
