who cares? It's a lost year anyway. Might as well see what the young guys can do. I dont even want to see Hairston back. I'd rather see if Duda, Kirk and Baxter can have bounce back years. We've seen flashes of very good productivity from all 3 guys. Then there is also Valdespin...

Well I still have hope on some fa's that I think could help us, I am all in on Nyjer Morgan! I think he can be our opening day cf'er and when Den Dekker is ready slide Morgan over to rf. We can get him cheap after a down year maybe 3yrs $10 mil. Also a few other names to look at:
Another guy I would look at is Carlos Lee, he got paid 19 mil last year but if no interest in him maybe we can get a steal for 1 year.
I also would like to see us look at some trades....Davis(tor), Bourjus(laa), Upton(zona)and a long shot Gordon or Butler(kc). I am not interested in Kubel, Parra or Wells. I still think there is some talent out there and I think it is just a matter of time and SA holding out for a good $$$ deal for us. JMO

Parra would be a nice get. He's the Dback OFer I think we should target. .280 career hitter...won a gold glove....25 years old.
He's kind of similar to Angel Pagan but Parra is the better fielder/little less of a base steeler.
The thing is that the Dbacks dont want/need to trade for pitching. I dont know what position players we could trade. Flores would probably get a deal done, he doesn't have a position for us while the Dbacks have no 3B.
I like Flores for Parra, but again isn't Parra just another of those peripheral guys. Not quite an everyday player, close but not quite.
I wouldn't go for Parra either way though. The Mets have plenty of young, cost controlled, 4th outfielder types already. If we sign or trade for anyone he has to have high impact upside. I would take a chance trading prospects for Upton though.
