he was released by the mets in june from their triple a team. He was batting 276 with 5 hr, he's only 27 years old. I would think it would at least be worth a flyer on him to see what he has left. He is also a right handed hitter which we continue to look for.

i would like to see wily mo back. what's the harm? we all know the tremendous power he has, and the year after he left the reds he batted .301 with the bosox. even if he bats .250 with 30 HRs it's a major improvement with the crap we send out there now

I say give him a try. I remember seeing "groupies" in the stands one game I was at. I am sure they would also like to see him back.

He would at least make batting practice fun.

I have a slow pitch softball team he could play on. I think he is probably more suited for that.

For all the negative things that have said about Willy Mo, he did allow the Reds to get Bronson Arroyo. Bronson has taken the ball every 5th day and pitched some very good games, and has seen his share of games with vary little run support.

this guy had so much potential, but really had no understanding of the game. Relied completely on his athleticism.
