Re: David Wright
When I look at Wright I see a guy who has the legit ability to put up .900 ops numbers as he's done it 4 of his 8 years in the majors 3 of the other years he's been .837+ and his only year under .800 is this year at .788 and he's been on the dl since mid may. Oh and not to mention he's a two time gold glove award winner. Oh and also did I mention he's only 28? The guys is legit as they come and is a worker.
Like I said I think coming to a team who is competing for a divisional title would do wonders for giving him a new life, not to mention getting away from the suffocating NYC media. The Reds have 13 million coming off the books with Cordero. I slide Chapman to closer and that hole is filled. (I don't see him ever being a starter) You are right the truth is that there are alot of guys who will need resigned, but if this ownership is serious about about competing for a WS title and is willing to put up some extra money it's possible. NY may be willing to eat a little of Wrights salary to get him off the books with the financial spot they are in right now.
