It looks like 40 SB's might be a pipe dream this year with how they're running him . An outfieldrt that hits .280 with 30Hrs and 20 SBs is good but not a top 5 pick. Any thoughts?
I'd deal him, and this is coming from a huge Mets fan, but he is not going to go 40/40 in Shea stadium like many people hoped. The best you could hope for is 30/30, which is great, but not a top 5 pick. Sell him now, while his value is still through the roof.
