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?
