    • Mets could have had Billy Hamilton for Reyes in 2011

That would have been a great trade for us. Imagine having him leadoff for us! Then Murphy could hit second, whffboy and his tiny little bat could hit 3rd, and then the real sluggers, TDA and Ike could clean up.

You really need to do something about that obsession of yours with DW.

Maybe talk to someone. A professional, preferably.

This was before is insane 2012. Reyes was the best player in the league in 2011, especially in the first half. This would have worked. We didn't even really explore trading the guy. Sandy and the Wilpons really missed a great opportunity.

Wright is going to be terrible next season. .280 with 17 HRs...book it.

"We didn't even really explore trading the guy."

How do you know that?

Please remember Reyes had a few trips to the DL, and he missed quite a few games from 2009 to 2011.

Reyes landed on the DL July 2nd. At that point, he was hitting .355 and slugging .529. There is no way, that we would have had trouble getting a top prospect for him.

There were no rumors about us trading Reyes at all. Had we explored this actively, is is very likely that there would have been rumors. This is not a trial. The threshold here has to be a preponderance of evidence, not beyond a reasonable doubt.

"is is very likely that there would have been rumors."

Not necessarily.

But you can believe what you want. Doesn't really matter anyway. We can't do anything about it, so you might as well sit back and hope for the best.

Getting an ulcer over this is not worth it.

Hamilton has been untouchable in the Reds system since the day he stole his first, second, and third bases in the same game in single A Dayton.

The only guy who has been MORE untouchable in the Reds system in the past 5 years is Aroldis Chapman.

thats what I heard about him also, he was untouchable. Maybe he meant he had that trade proposal in fantasy baseball
