thats not what he was saying
he hates david wright so his point was that david wright is terrible and never should have been resigned and we should have just traded him and let flores start at 3b
he's part of that "david wright is garbage and is the whole reason this team is bad" crowd of mentally challenged posters
Well, where is he among 3B prospects? From what I recall reading he is among the best.
So if a team needs a 3B and they have an OF prospect they can part with, that may be a deal in waiting.
hes number 10 on some lists...mostly on lists compiled by people that havent completely written him off....if you go by other prospect gurus (like law) hes not even in the conversation
not nearly as respected as he should be after putting up those numbers
Edgardo Alfonzo got moved around a bit, too. Came up as a shortstop, moved to 2b and then to third. He did OK. Most of the scouting reports on Flores that I've seen say that he's good with the glove, but everyone expects him to get "too big" (whatever that means) to play shortstop.
Is the transition from shortstop to second base more difficult than the transition from shortstop to third?
>>>"Be nice if this thing was resolved in the next year and one or the other was traded. I'm so sick and tired of having situations like this."<<<
Yeah, they need to make a decision one way or he other with him. Plus I'm afraid all the indecision about his position could be a distraction for him with his bat at some point.
Put him at 2nd and let him learn, or OF, or trade him for an OF prospect if equal ceiling. I mean, there's got to be a couple of teams out there with a good OF prospect, who could use an infielder instead.
I love Murphy, but if Flores is no worse defensively at 2nd than Murphy, I'd opt for Flores because I think he's got a bigger ceiling offensively, and also, he'll be millions cheaper at this stage. Not that Murphy makes that much, but if you can save 3 million or so, then why not.
TDA was on pace to do just that last year....he had 16 in just 67 games
and wilmer's power is pretty comparable to TDA's truthfully
