Reyes will 100% be the yankees SS when jeter decides he's done. There is zero doubt in my mind.
I wouldn't be surprised if the marlins signed that contract with this in mind.
+1. Wright is not the problem. If this organization can't afford him, that's not his problem. How quick we forget the circumstances that brought this team to it's current woeful state: cheapskate penny-pinching due, in large part, to sneaky, greedy, conniving business practices.
Trading Wright away is FATALISM, plain and simple. Mets fans have lived with failure for so long that they've actually started to believe that bailing on their best players to save a buck and plan for the future is the right approach, when the fact is The Coupons & Co. bailed on this team's future a LONG time ago. So what's the real heart of the matter? Letting one of the best homegrown players in the history of this franchise walk because you're too in debt to afford him as a result of your bad business dealings. Still have sympathy for the Coupons and want to let him walk now? What makes you think any money saved gets reinvested back into the team? What makes you think a few prospects will miraculously improve the continuing glaring issues this organization has? Guaranteed, they all end up kindling for the fire. Then we feel bad that they can't be on a better team, so we trade them away for more unproven kindling, LOL. Until Fred, Jeffy, and their entourage of boot licking toadies are gone, the climate here WILL NOT change.
There's no rebuilding here, people! Wake the funk up! Not while these idiots are in command. It's all a ruse, and you've bought into it. The Coupons play roulette with this team, and hope that for every 2nd rate misfit, past their prime, AAA bottom feeder, or damaged goods they pick up from other teams scrap heaps, 1 or 2 might actually be productive. Hey, it happens...rarely (Dickey, anyone?), but it's no way to run/build a team year in and year out.
It may be whats best for Wright but not for the Mets.Mets are not that far away from being solid.Its just the idiots in the FO seem to think that rotating guys back & forth from the farm is the answer instead of actually upgrading a few positions from outside
Wright will never win anything here. Its best he move on to a team that's just about complete and need an allstar 3rd baseman. The Mets could use the 2-3 high end prospects they get back to speed up the youth movement...
--> Now a hard puzzle to figure out where Wright is likely to end up.
We have enough 3B with Lutz, Flores & Cambell.We have enough 2B Valdespin, Satin, Havens & Turner.
--> That is enough? What have any of these guys ever proven?
send him to philly....you can have anyone except hamels and halladay....that is a fair deal.
>I find it amusing that there are people are dying to get rid of him, yet every other fan covets him. Hmmm.<
No offense, but those 2b/3b options are horrid. Turner? Valdespin? Satin? Turner is a bench guy. In all likelihood thats what Valdespin is too. Satin turns 28 in a month and he's still in the minors. Lutz is having a nice year, but he's already 26...and he's constantly hurt. Havens is constantly hurt, and now this year that he's actually staying on the field he's been brutal. Flores might be something but he's still years away.
Those guys are not enough at 2b/3b....certainly not enough to get rid of Wright for....and not really convincing enough to let Murph go either.
