A-Rod - A MET??? Let's See, the Definition of Heresy Is...

So there's a story in today's Record talking about "Shea-Rod" - Yes, (David Wright's Stats) as much as I love the kid, proclaims he would give up the Hot Corner if Mr. $252-Million-And-I-Am-Not-Pals-With-Derek-Jeter came to Flushing. (See story: Wright Wants Shea-Rod

Now, don't get me wrong. I am all for bettering the Mets (and the team finally "GOT IT" when they shed John Franco), but the dynamic of Wright at 3B, a position he played forever, just going away at this stage of the game is completely ludicrous. Remember, when A-Rod was with the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers, (Alex Rodriguez Stats ) he was either playing SS or DH. Now there is NO WAY us die hard Mets fans would let him go to SS and even get within the comfort radius of Jose Reyes - so, where is the logical place for him to play? Maybe 2B - that would be OK with me. And, before he goes spouting off (that is if I was GM and had him, I'd say that as a consummate player, he should be able to play anywhere in the infield.)

OK. I'm done ranting. A-Rod, you can come to Shea and play 2B...BUT, don't get any other ideas.

Let A-Rod go to first base. A lot of old SS's have gone there to die as in Nomar, Ernie Banks and I'm sure plenty others. Wright's future is at 3rd so why move him only to have to move him back later? But we all know A-Rod isn't going anywhere, especially to another NY team.

Move Wright to 2B and A-Rod to 3B

Wow I would love our infield alongside Reyes and Delgado with LoDuca behind the plate.

Is A-Rod really thinking about going to the Mets???
