    Who can we realistically get:Stanton,Upton or Meyers?

    Out these 3 outfielders who can we really get without the farm system getting raped?

    Stanton-- Proven at the Major league level and make minimum and controllable
    for a few more years

    Upton- Also proven at the Major league level and making a few million more a year and also controllable for a few more years

    Meyers- Not proven at Major league level and make minimum.


    When you break it down like this , you are obviously taking the most risk with Meyers. Prospects like Travis Snider, Adam Lind, Matt Wieters, etc........

    Guys who came in the league and didn't tear it up , like they were supposed to tear it up.

    Realistically i think Meyers is a great situation for us. The difference between Meyers and Stanton is one is proven and the other has to prove.

    I know Stanton will cost us dearly but do we really think Meyers can command the same prospects you would have to give up for Stanton?

    Think Noah Syndergard,Nimmo,Meija and Flores couldn't net us Meyers?

    We will realistically get none of those guys.

    Why? Realistically we got D'Arnaud and Noah for a 38 Cy Young winner when everyone thought we had no chance to get D'Arnaud.

    Realistically we got Zack Wheeler for an aging outfielder with bad knees for just 2 months of service.

    Realistically R.A Dickey a knuckleballer won the CY Young when previously was dropped by numeruous teams.

    So why cant we realistically can't get one of the outfielders?

    Good thing you don't work for the Mets as our G.M. YoungStuna28, im glad you set your goals high.

    We have the pieces to get them but the asking price will be very high. Think Harvey + d'Arnaud + Syndergaard + other pieces for Upton and possibly even more for Stanton.

    Agreed, but Stanton.....

    Still though, I'd be nervous to trade away two of our top 3 young SP who all have the potential to be top of the line starters, plus TDA. Stanton would be awesome here, but if we once again have no catcher at all and a bad starting rotation, where is that gonna get us? Might be better off continuing to build the rotation with youngsters like we are and spend the money on OF free agents. There are quite a few good ones after this upcoming season.

    We got 2 blue-chip prospects for 38 year old knuckleballer. They're are gonna ask the moon for Upton. They wanted Andrus + other top prospects from the Rangers.

    Glad the FO knows not to trade any of their important prospects while in a rebuilding phase.

    LOL and I'm a bad GM. Four high-end prospects for one prospect?

    Nimmo -is years away before he has an impact. Wright will be towards the end of his career by the time Nimmo contributes.

    Flores- really has no position ,blocked at 3rd by Wright. Too slow for outfield and too big for short stop,so where will you play him? No DH in the NL.

    Noah- He is going to be your center piece to build around

    Meija- We are strong at pitching , nice throw in to make it happen.

    If we have a 5 year window where Wright is productive then we need major league players and prospects that can start contributing this year such as Meyers.

    Nimmo isnt that player it will be 5 years before he ges into Majors and Flores does'nt have a position, so cancel them out.

    We can give them a very high end prospect like Noah because im very satisfied with Niese,Harvey and Wheeler for the next 5 years as your #1,2,3 starters.
    Im sure between Montero,Tapia,Familia,Michael Fullmer we can scrape up a #4 and #5 starter, if not theres plent of #4 and # 5 starters in free agency

    Wright
    Davis
    D'Araund
    Meyers

    not bad for #3-#6 hitters.

    Got a better plan Young Stuna28 that you want to keep those prospects?

    Let me answer. I do want to keep those prospects, and although it would be very nice to have a Stanton, Upton or Myers (actually you picked a very disparate trio there) the Giants have shown that you don't need an all star at every position to win a WS.

    According to Jonathan Mayo, Nimmo's ETA is 2014. I wouldn't expect him to make a significant impact that early, but if he is going to contribute, it will be well before Wright is riding off into the sunset. I think Flores can make an impact at 2B in the very near future, but I wouldn't be upset if his true value is ultimately as a trade chip. Noah, on the other hand, can be a solid #2 in our rotation, and is a keeper. And Mejia still has the possibility of contributing to the rotation, but he would be our #5 at best, in 2015. I see Harvey, Niese, Wheeler, Syndergaard, Mejia as a dominant quintet.

    My plan for the outfield would be to trade for (1) Emilio Bonifacio, or (2) Alejandro De Aza, or (3) Coco Crisp. All realistically attainable for a package of non-elite prospects like 2 or 3 from the following list: Familia, Puello, Lagares, Den Dekker, Aderlin, or Tovar. Then I'd sign Cody Ross or Scott Hairston, with Ross the slight favorite. Now I have 5 outfielders, each of whom can play all 3 outfield positions and play them well. I'd platoon Nieuwenhuis with Cowgill, probably in CF, with Baxter on the bench.

    My Ideal Lineup:
    Bonifacio - LF (SW)
    Murphy - 2B (L)
    Wright - 3B (R)
    Davis - 1B (L)
    Ross - RF (R)
    d'Arnaud - C (R)
    Nieuwenhuis/Cowgill - CF (L/R)
    Tejada - SS (R)

    Realistically, though, you have to figure that Buck is probably the starting catcher until mid-May or June, when Travis is brought up. Also, if Murphy gets off to a solid start, and Valdespin and/or Flores demonstrates that they are ready for center stage, I'd trade Murph at the deadline and bring one or both up to replace him at 2B.

    We can get all 3 without giving up Wheeler, Harvey, Syndegard, or D'Arnaud.

    Not that hard. All we need is force trade in MLB 2k13.

    Why don't we just save ourselves the trouble and make all three 99 overall?
