Would Ws Lead to Ws?


I was scanning a list of potential free agents yesterday, bemoaning the probability that not a single one will end up in Queens. However, I did see a couple of names that might catch our new GM’s fancy.

Our new GM, Mr. Alderson, is quite famous — and rightly so — for being able to exploit “market inefficiencies.” A fancy way of saying that he sees something nobody else does. That comes with the territory of being the smartest one in the room most of the time. Anyway, a current MI might be injured, formerly awesome starting pitchers. In fact, he inherited one, Johan the (erstwhile) Magnificent. Arizona is apparently cutting ties with Brandon Webb, who has been brilliant when not injured. Perhaps a 1-year, incentive-laden pact might do the trick? It’s a pretty neat risk/reward scenario.

The other name is an obvious one, Philadelphia outfielder Jayson Werth. I’ve made no secret of my desire to see Mr. Werth patrolling Citi Field’s right field. I’ve been pining for the fjords since 2007.

I would be very happy if Sandy would lock up Webb & Werth, then call it a day.

But that’s just me…
