The exception of course is we get blown away with an offer.
Fans usually alway over values some of their players, but specially their prospects.
The Mets overvalue all their players. Does anybody still remember Lastings Milledge? They acted like he was going to be the next Strawberry and instead he turned into the next Tito Landrum.
I'm not shopping around Flores, and I'm certainly not exploiting his weakness (no defined position) unless someone make me a great offer for him.
Acer got it. Flores can play third base and maybe first base, without having his defense take away from his offense. David Wright is now a Met for life. And Ike looked great in the second half. Now is the time to sell high on Flores, and I love Flores.
And he hasn't even played all that many games at third base.
If we trade Flores now, we'll be selling low.
A better strategy would be to see if he can establish himself as an outfielder. Then teams would know they'd have to work hard to pry him from the Mets.
The Catch-22 of course is if that should happen, you wouldn't want to trade him.
That you do sort of illustrates my point.
Although yes, Olt is a much better prospect.
