I’m buying into the “Core” mentality.
SinceÂ I’ve been hearing term for the past year now more than ever and after watching last nights Philly/Dodger game, I am beginning toÂ realize just how true thisÂ term is.Â So I am putting out the word:Â TheÂ MetsÂ need players, not rentals, but players for the “Core”
Right now, the Met “Core” of Wright, Reyes, Beltran, Francoeur and Santana are keepers.Â Â We’re looking to build around these guys and I am on the hunt for one more guy-maybe two.Â
My question to everyone is…if you were to add another Â ”Core” player, who would it be?Â Â Let’s assume that money and trades are not a factor.Â Who in thisÂ league would you pick?Â You have the following positions to choose from….Left Field, Catcher, First BaseÂ or Â Second Base to find your players.
The only rule is that the player you choose cannot be from Philly or the Yankees.Â ( I figured there is a slim chance that we’re getting Howard or A-rod, not that we really wanted him anyway)
O.k, let’s see it.
