    Yeah, that's a good point. I'd prefer a more than decent glove at SS.
  2. So the Mets are considering Jeong-ho Kang for SS

    Should we go for him? Check out his numbers in the Korean leagues:

    Games - 116, AB - 415, Runs - 102, Hits - 147, HR - 39, RBI - 115, BA - .354, OBP - .457, SLG - .733

    I like CarGo but he's another one whose potential trip to the DL scares me. Would his inevitable stint on the DL be worth the top prospects we would have to trade to get him?

    I hate platoons. Platoons to me are more of a stop gap solution or a last resort because we have no better options. How many platoons have you seen on championship teams? And if you can think of...

    Even with the horrible year he had last year, it doesn't make much sense to trade him. And as someone already stated, no one would want him at this point. Too big a contract for a guy coming off a...

    The case for Nick Markakis

    In a perfect world, the Mets would figure out a way to get G. Stanton without depleting and compromising our farm system. But that seems to be nothing but a pipe dream. So coming down to earth, who...

    That's an unrealistic scenario. The Rockies are never going to trade Tulowitzki for Murphy and some other pieces. We are not going to get someone like Tulo for Murph + a couple pieces.

    I couldn't foresee Ellsbury being a Bay-type situation. I think he's the real deal no matter who he plays for. What DOES worry me about Ellsbury is that he's an injury risk.

    I just don't think that combination of guys makes a World Series calibre team.

    And you guys keep bringing up Abreu and yet we don't even know if he can hit ML pitching yet.

    I think we should get Choo. I'd pass on Ethier. We have no idea if Abreu's success in Cuba will translate in the Major Leagues. And H. Ramirez is not available till 2015.

    Don't get me wrong. I definitely think we should spend for an item or two (like Choo). But considering what's available I don't think we should use our available funds to fill ALL of our needs. ...

    Trades may end up being the way to go but again the same principle applies. If we must trade, we must make sure that what we get in return is awesome talent. But the flip side of that is what we...

    You see this is what I'm talking about. Eithier is not the impact power bat that we so badly need. Sure he's a decent contributor but he excites no one. Why do we have this mentality that we must...
