Our best hitter is David Wright by the way and I cant say that I'd be upset if that trade went through. Latroy would help out our weak bullpen and he seems to be quite solid when not in the closer's role. Plus, it would mean more PT for Victor Diaz. Don't get me wrong, Floyd has been great this year but we all know the guy will hit the DL sometime this season. I guess I'm more impartial and would be fine with it if did or didn't happen.
You might be right about Wright. But I personally think Floyd is better for now, especially considering where he is usually batting. (Yet if Wright was protected by Cliff Floyd in the batting order? Watch out!) However, I would be downright peeved if the Mets thought this could improve them this year. We could find bullpen help better than Hawkins for a cheaper price than Floyd.
It would be a huge mistake. Huge. And I liked Diaz as well, but I'm not ready to take an upgrade on a non-closer and hope Diaz can hold his own all year.
