The contract and money Cody Ross gets will not be worth it anyway. He has bust written all over it, his numbers at Fenway are polar opposites of his numbers away.
im sorry but how can you be certain duda even gives you that
i honestly think that duda over a full year would hit about 220 w/ 15 hrs at best and would be the worst defensive of in mlb
i really think that dickey is going to get traded last minute...honestly, i really think that is why the mets keep lowballing him...they want to keep contract negotiations alive to keep their leverage so that teams dont say "oh well clearly you arent willing to keep him" so they can get the best package out of a team
grienke is gone....now shields is off the table....how long will teams like texas hold out before giving in and including a second player? i mean, really, what else is left out there?
i get the feeling that the mets are trying to get a package of olt and jorge alfaro, which I would likely do as a trade
alfaro is currently rated the 6th best catching prospect in all of mlb and many believe that, despite not playing in AA and only being 19, he could be ready at some point this season
then they would move Olt likely to RF or possibly Left, give kirk the CF job (w/ den dekker waiting in the wings if he struggles) sign ross to take the other OF spot, and get a scrub back up catcher to split time w/ thole until they can bring up alfaro....maybe they move a few prospects for either jpa or salty as stop gaps
however, the first step in that would likely be actually making the 11th hour trade (though I think itd be wise to make an offer to ross now bc we really need 2 of)
"True. All of his moves this offseason have been towards giving Jeffy short term cash flow"
if this what happens then that means once again the wilpons lied.about payroll,the defered money plans,etc. and the worst part,they didnt just lie to us,they lied to wright aswell.
*I think Duda can at least put up Ross numbers (.260 20 hrs)*
Duda is a defensive liability. All you need to do is look at the expression on the pitchers faces every time he misplays a fly ball....He needs to produce alot better than that to jusify playing
