My Wish List for the 2009 Mets:
Anyone else currently on the roster should be traded for players who are 1) average-above average at their positions, and 2) gritty/tough players
I know this is all pure nonsense and that it’ll never happen, but right now, the above players seem to be the ones who have that extra something special that is reminiscent of the early 90’s Braves and late 90’s Yankees.
Yes, I realize that this means getting rid of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, and Johan Santana. I’m okay with all of that. Really, I am. All three are great players who could fetch some real talent in return, guys who have maybe a little less talent but a lot more grit.
I’m all for a complete over-haul of the team and the minor league system. Watching the Rays pound the Red Sox earlier this week, and seeing how fun that team is to watch, I felt very jealous.
Go ahead and tell me how wrong I am.
