Well, I am officially writing off the Mets since the Braves are about to acquire Derek Lee from the Cubs. It’s between Philly and Atlanta now and I am leaning towards the Braves.
Here’s my wish-list for 2011:
LF–A healthy and at least average Jason Bay
CF–Angel Pagan. he has earned PT and some bucks
RF–a healthy and maturing Fernando Martinez
3B–a healthy and average David Wright, even if that’s somewhere between 2007-2008 and 2009-1010 David
SS–a healthy Jose Reyes
2B–there is talk of Chone Figgins, and only because it seems plausible, gotta do something
C–Josh Thole, Rod Barajas
Rotation of Johan, Dickey, Pelfrey, Niese, and Jenrry would be adequate. Addition of a mid-level starter would be nice, as well.
Let’s get rid of Beltran and Franceour and move on.
