According to Jon Heyman, the Fish offered Dontrelle Willis to the Mets for David Wright this spring. Sounds like something out of a fantasy league.
Baseball Prospectus projects Wright to be with about ten more wins than Willis over the next five seasons. I believe Heyman here. His report definitely calls Jeffrey Loria’s denials into question. Sounds like the Fish are shooting for the moon with Willis, but he really does seem to be available.
What do you think of a Willis for Chase Utley deal? Who wins, and why wouldn’t it work?
