Helms does not belong on the no future list but doesnt belong on the future list either.... Yea hes old but I would give him a yr by yr contract starting after this season.. Helms is a good veteran bench player, something you need in the playoffs... Kind of like Lenny Harris...

 

I would take off Vargas too.. Yea he's struggled but lefties are rare... you never know... low risk high reward..

Im pretty sure no one is going to argue with you

 

except on maybe Vargas.... and lol at Amezaga

 

I realize he is a nice guy to have around, but I think Andino could do the same job

 

 

 

I WAS one of the biggest Amezaga haters at the beginning of the year but he has changed my mind. He plays solid D, has proven he can hit off the bench (I mean last year he hit like .340 in AAA), his BB/K ratio is decent 27/36, and he plays many positions. I like this guy now, but only as a bench player.

Basically, these rankings are as of today.

 

I've always been a Vargas supporter but the fact of the matter is that we just have much more talent in the minor leagues as far as pitching goes.

Amezega is a tremendous asset off the bench, he can be plugged in anywhere, is a solid defender, has speed, and can hit pretty well in streaks.

 

Vargas, I don't think we should give up on, though with Olsen and Willis in the rotation, I don't think we have room for 3 lefties. Am I mistaken, do any other teams have 2/3 of thier rotation left-handed?

 

Helms is a guy I want signed for next year, he's an awesome sub and hits well late in the game.

 

Andino is a guy who I think needs to be evaluated more at the big league level before you can say he does or does not have a future with the club.

what is the point of this thread

 

I like this thread. It promotes discussion, it's not concerning the front office or Girardi, and it's pertinent to current events (September callups).

I really think he'll be a role player on a major market team next year.. and get more money then we'd be willing to take on for a backup.

 

The guy can obviously play.. I'd like to see what he could do playing everyday.

 

on the back of Wes' baseball card it says----"If I get the chance to play everyday, I'll do great things"-Wes Helms
