If its between the 2, who do you want?
Figure they get 3-4 year deals, obviously Victorino would get more coin.
Melkey will stink like he did with the Braves without his Roids.
Victorino in a heart beat. He's the type of hard-nosed player the Mets need.
Problem is, would the fans accept him, and bigger problem, will he accept the Mets? While a phillie, he was one of the main antagonist of the rivalry. Who can forget his dirty slide against Reyes? See him in a Mets uniform would be like seeing John Starks in a Chicago Bulls uniform; if just doesn't seem right.
god no to victorino....the guy is a bum and he's plummeting fast - the guy has mediocre power at best, hes no longer a good defensive cf, and he hasnt hit above 280 since 2009.....
id be ok w/ melky (as much as it would kill me to root for a cheater) so long as it is a one year deal w/ no option and no chance that they extend him
As a Phils fan, I say stay away from Victorino. As some on here have noted, he's been moving downhill. His best days are behind him.
Would certainly be odd seeing Victorino in a Met uni. You guys absolutely hated him for so long, but if he were to become a Met - and played well - you'd love him. We'd do the same thing if we somehow ended up with Wright.
It's all about the laundry.
