Silly Season Starts, Mets Alleged To Want Peter Bourjos For David Wright
I'm not so convinced that this New York Post article has any meaning other than that silly season has started; the "young, defensive-oriented center fielder they crave" would surely be Peter Bourjos. Honestly, I don't see the value that David Wright brings to the table, as it looks like his .254/.345/.427 line in 2011 is an early career collapse. As BPro pointed out in the wake of Fred Wilpon's semi-tirade against his players, Wright, while a very impressive player in some ways, is no longer a superstar. To give up young talent on the off chance that Wright might recover sounds like trial balloon aimed at a tyro general manager — i.e., Jerry Dipoto. Just say no, Jerry.
