    I mean the OF joked about in Met lore of Agbayani, Payton, Bell, Hamilton and Timo would have us all practically salivating right about now.

    Sad.
    Joe McIlvaine built the core of those 1998 - 2001 teams up, but Fred replaced him with Steve Phillips before he was done because McIlvaine chafed at Fred's constant interference.

    Imagine how good those teams would have been if Fred either butted out or put them over the top by spending for a real outfield?
