Because as you said, he is frustrating to watch, he isnt going to be the type of hitter they need. They need someone that hits line drives, not pops up. It's just his attitude I have had enough of. Him calling out the fans for not being loud. Plus they need to get younger. Its been a great 10 years.
I agree, but the problem is I don't know if theres any SS out there that fit that description. He honestly might be their best option unless they look to a trade. However, I doubt their going to look to trade for a SS with needing to fill 1B. Unless they think Mayberry will be fine, or if they'll fill that hole with a FA.
Gload is probably gone so I would try to sign thome for a yr. Then you got John jr and thome at 1st until Howard comes back. I think polanco will be fine so unless there is a cheap option to fill in at 3rd I say Wilson and mini-mart fill in there.
Sign Aramis, Polanco at 2nd, and Utley at 1st. or play Mayberry at 1st and let Utley stay at 2nd.
Id rather them get younger but if they fail to do this then I wouldnt mind them signing Aramis if it for no more than two years. I want Mayberry to play full time along with Brown. Call Gavis up and let him play with Martinez possibly.
If wen could get our roster to look like this I'd consider it a pretty good off season....
SP- Roy Halladay
SP- Cliff Lee
SP- CC Sabathia
SP- Cole Hamels
SP- Joe Blanton
C- Carlos Ruiz
1B- Joey Votto
2B- Chase Utley
3B- David Wright
SS- Jose Reyes
LF- Jason Kubel
CF- Shane Victorino
RF- Hunter Pence
Well Howard can't be traded, and Brown, Worley, and any of our other prospects wouldn't fetch half of the names on this list. If Cinncy deals Votto, it won't be to an NL powerhouse. I see no reason for the Mets to deal David Wright, and Wayne Cashman would laugh and hang up the phone if someone called for C.C., unless the name "Roy Halladay" was mentioned in the first 3 seconds.
Unless we move Hamels and Brown, I don't see much much assistance coming via trade. Opposing GMs won't be helping us out.
