Here me out mets fans,

Do we need power in the outfield? Yes
But power cost money and we don't have that.
Do we need a top of the lineup guy with speed that can steal bases?
Yes we do.
Does michael Bourn fit that?
Yes he does.
40+ steals per season can help us. Who on this team has speed? David wright? lol

Michael Bourn
Ruben Tejada
David Wright
Ike Davis
Daniel Murphy
Travis D' Arnaud
Mike Baxter/Lucas Duda
Kirk Nieuwenhuis

LOL wait we still s*ck

That's why we should go with den Dekker.

thats a big improvement. i like your lineup but i might hit murphy 3rd: bourn tejada murphy (.300 bat with doubles power will be helped batting in front of wright) wright davis darnaud/buck duda lf (pick your platoon from baxter niewenhuiss valdespin/cowgill brown). but i still doubt we sign bourn. how about trading wilmer flores to snakes for pollack, now that snakes traded their 3b prospect to braves for prado?

Even with Bourn (if they do sign him) they need another outfielder who is proven and who can play RF.

Why the obsession with "proven". I'd rather have some upside than know our player will give us ordinary.

David Wright does have speed - but no, he's not the guy.

ove the assumption that denDekker will be a 20+ homerun guy in MLB. If Sandy thought that was even a remote possibility he wouldnt be trying to get an outfielder. He is a marginal prospect that is noit ready yet,. Be real people!, no one in our system NEAR the talent level of a Bourn

Den Dekker will most likely be a 4th OFer...just like the REST of our OF. He had good defense but strikes out WAY too much.

"Why the obsession with "proven". I'd rather have some upside than know our player will give us ordinary."

I agree... if we're "not going anywhere anyway."
