WRIGHT & MORNEAU ARE COMING TRA-LA TRA-LA

Postby Patella Tendon » Fri Jul 09, 2004 10:19 am

The Star-Tribune reports that Doug Mientkiewicz (1B) Min confirmed yesterday that he could be out until after the All-Star break due to his bruised wrist.


The twinkies previously said they would bring up Morneau if Doug's injury will keep him down after the break.

The Kris Benson to the Mets rumor is alive again.
The Pirates now seem more interested in Ty Wigginton who was offered in exchange for Benson in talks before. It could be that Wigginton's hot hitting as of late (.325 with 5 HR over his last 10 games) may have softened Pirate GM Dave Littlefield's position. Jul. 9 - 9:31 am et

Once Wiggy is gone - up comes Wright!

If you're league lets you pick them up now then I'd go ahead and take a flier on one of them or both depending how strong you were at their respective positions.

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

I might stash both, I have Chipper at third and Furcal at SS, so thye could both come in handy later

nothing better then having the fresh stud on your team before anyone else!

Who does everyone think is the better longterm prospect, Upton or Wright?

Hard to tell this early i would say Upton as he will be playing a shallower position and 3B is going to be sick the next 3-5 years. Wright is not a consolation prize under any means in this argument!

I'd also say Upton and that isn't just me being a Rays fan. It's because he will play SS and is just flat out hitting the ball in Triple A as just a 19 year old. He just keeps getting better at such a young age that it is quite remarkable. But for this year Wright could be just as valuable, as it might take some time for Upton to adjust at first. Though he has not really shown any signs of that in the past.
