Stark's Plan to Rebuild Mets

82

Stark says to trade Jose Reyes and bring in "grinders". My favorite parts of the article: "They need to think character, and bring in high-character players," said one baseball man we surveyed. "The single greatest difference between the Phillies and the Mets is that the Phillies have guys in their clubhouse who care about each other and they're all about winning. The Mets don't have nearly enough guys like that." and What do the Mets need? We heard terms like "gamers" and "blue-collar players" over and over. To be a truly great team, said one scout, "you need grinders, not stars. And the Mets have been All-Stars and no grinders." How can you argue with intelligent sources like "baseball man" and "scout"?
