Would love that outfield. Would even take Kirk in left if we had to.
The only thing now is creating a trade for Upton. Jon Niese and ???, I would not give up Tejeda and Niese because that would create 2 holes.
Melky, 1 year, 4 million
Bay's contract is now deferred from what I hear, so these moves seem possible if we can get the Upton deal done.
Just need to get another reliever and possibly a new catcher. Wish we would go after AJ, just back load his second year. Since Santana's contract will be gone after this season.
Yes, Might cost us neise but if we resigned Dickey we can afford losing him, Then sign Melky
DickeySantanaHarveyGeePelf? MC Hugh ETC
Ideally I say we keep NIESE, sign MELKY, trade DICKEY to the Royals for GORDON, and call it a WRAP
GORDON-MELKY-DUDA OF = NOT TO F'N SHABBY
who's playing center in that lineup? None of those 3 are CF any more. Melky looked like he had less range than Duda last season. He isnt as slender and speedy as he was before the roids. He's a corner outfielder now.
I would also prefer anyone but Duda. Duda should be a PH or DH. Either Kirk in Center or some low budget FA. I would even gulp and say Torres in Center.
well i think the club is going to resign dickey anyway.
As for dealing Niese, of course I'd rather not. But to get a player as good as Justin Upton, Niese should be made available. He's a fine young pitcher, signed to a very team friendly deal. But Upton is a very good player that would immediately become our 2nd best player/part of our core for years to come.
