Kaz should prove to be a very nice offensive player but I will be avoiding Mets if I can next year. :-?

And that sounds like a joke gone awry... :-b

I don't agree. I think Reyes, Matsui and Wright will all be viable fantasy options despite the Mets' success or lack of. Also, Hidalgo, Floyd and Piazza to a lesser extent although I don't think seeing Floyd or Piazza in a different uniform next year would be shocking.

victor zambrano might be a good option, as well, assuming he's actually around. anyone know how long he'll be out for this elbow thingy?

My point is that there is no Met that jumps out at me, especially as a keeper. Matsui is still somewhat unproven. Wright looks good but I need to see more. Reyes is the wildcard. I have never seen someone get so much hype and prove nothing than him. He has the tools but someone with that many serious leg injuries at such a young age scares me. :-o

I agree with that. Wright is the only Met right now I consider a viable keeper and the league would have to be fairly deep.

Reyes' hype isn't overhype IMO. Living in NJ I'm sure you've caught a Mets game or too. The kid has all the tools. The two big knocks against him are plate discipline and being injury-prone.

I think Reyes will fall far in drafts next year so I agree he's not keeper material. If he stays healthy he will be a great value pick next year.

Reyes has the tools but they do no good on the DL. He will never be a 30+ HR guy. Most of his game is built on speed and with this many leg injuries this early in his career, I'm not sure that he will ever live up to it. :-?

They really need him healthy because Kaz belongs nowhere near SS. :-t
