a yr ago i would have been on this bandwagon call for david wright but considering his age and his salary i would have to pass. besides things worked out good when we had feliz and even with polanco the team is still strong. while placido's health is constantly an issue i think picking up a filler like wiggington is a good stop gap for the time being. in which case i just dont see wright being a good investment in terms of the next 5+ years
id take any other 3B in the NL East, over David Wright. :facepalm:
Why is this even a thread?
I know this Wright for Utley rumor sensation has been around a couple years now. Given the current status of the Mets and Utley's knee condition last season and this year again it makes ZERO sense for them when they are trying to rebuild the team.
Especially since they both make the same amount of money
There is a trade off More power versus better hitter and defense. :PHILS NEED POWER BIG TIME:
I wouldn't mind if the Phils added him and moved Polly to 2nd base until Chase gets back and then rotate all three since they all have injuries and problems.
It is not going to happen due to Money and why trade future to the METS and for injury prone guy.
I really want a left handed pure hitter to replace Utley after this year..One guy comes to mind Either if we could pull that off somehow someway that would be great..
If not look at Grady Siezmore at the trade deadline if Healthy and Cleveland is out of it
So...basically dont expect to get Sizemore at all
You have a good point he hasn't been Healthy in 3 years. But Andre Either would be the answer to our offense I don't know if he ever played LF
With new Dodger ownership Either isn't going anywhere and the Dodgers will be big spenders. How much does Hamels like Philadelphia?
Reports are theres a hang up with the length. Some people believe it will get done by opening day
^They were saying that on Comcast this morning...
He probably wants 6, Phil's want 4, will probably settle on 5 with a vesting option
