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 itâ€™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 90â€™s Braves and late 90â€™s Yankees.
Yes, I realize that this means getting rid of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, and Johan Santana. Iâ€™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.
Iâ€™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.
