Are you serious? Dude if Bernie was so.successful, why was he sent back down to AA after he hit .216 that first year? Why was Roberto Kelly considered the better prospect? Why was Bernie always lauded for not stealing enough and not hitting enough with power? Bernie became good with time. DJ was only being counted on to hit .250 and supply good defense. I'm sorry but your information is flawed.
So, keep that dream up. Rebuilding teams don't pay the bills and the fans in NY won't tolerate it.
You also don't rebuild teams that get bounced from the playoffs... you rebuild teams that are eliminated from the playoffs in early sept. (like boston this year)
the only minors guys i see that can have some sort of impact on the club would be david adams and cojo, i still need to see more of mustellier but he can easily replace andruw jones, also zolio almonte, i like his makeup and style of play.
i also agree id play romine as the catcher, i just rather not make drastic moves until we are in a better position to either make sound trades, sign FA or develop guys, we are just tied with all these contracts . Main goal should be to be under 189 by 2014 if we arent then we are going to be screwed
What we need right now is more guys like Michael Pineda.
Michael Pineda currently weighs 330 lbs.
330... how tall is this guy?..
the core four was a once in a generation phenomenon
Just listen to comments on this forum... the number of people that Hate playerX, even though they are playing very well... Montero is the only young guy that they have not totally knocked down and that is because of what COULD BE. If he hit in NY like he did for Seattle, they would have been running him down too...
