Grab Weaver......quick.....Weaver will help an Angels rotation in need...now this season........I love Milledge....But he will not play this year...Mets believe in Floyd, and will stick with him...Mets believe they can win it all, and will go with a seasoned vet......if they were bums, Milledge would see time....I think the kid is one of the best out there...but Weaver is your short term option

I don't think Milledge will see any real time this year. Weaver is the way to go unless you're in a keeper.

In a redraft league I would use my priority on Weaver. Milledge might not even be called up until the rosters expand and it would take a trade of Floyd or Nady for him to see any substantial playing time. In a keeper league it would really depend on my team. If I was weak in pitching I would still use it to grab Weaver.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Lol. Of course as soon as I post that Milledge gets called up and will start tonight with Nady going on the DL. :-B

if he comes up and plays well, either Cliff or the X man could be on their way out. I would say probably Cliff but who knows.

I have started to smarten up to the fact that all NEW YORK, both Mets and Yankees, prospects have always tended to be overhyped. If you look at Milledges stats, there really isn't much to go nuts over. Don't get me wrong, he could develope into something special, but at this point he could still go either way. If you are comparing Milledge and Weaver. There is no doubt that Weaver is the one to go after now, good pitchers are harder to come by, and if he keeps pitching well, he will stick in the rotation. Milledge on the other hand has a crowded road to playing time. These are Milledge's best season total for HR's is 15, RBI's 66, SB's 26 and that was all in A ball. His small AAA sample isn't very special.

I've noticed that in Milledge's specific case. He is a highly touted player and yet his minor league numbers don't support it. It's either a New York phenomenom or it could also simply be that he's an extremely 'toolsy' type of player that the traditional scouts go crazy about.

What, like David Wright, Derek Jeter or Jose Reyes?
