The 2007 Outfield

It's never too early to think about the future of the team. RIght now I'd like to look at the 2007 Mets, in particular the outfield:

Obviously Carlos Beltran isn't going anywhere, even though this bunting crap is frustrating to see. For some reason the guy comes up in RBI situations and decides to bunt for an infield hit. Ridiculous. This season seems to be Cliff Floyd's last in New York, as Lastings Milledge has been all but annointed our 2007 leftfielder. As for right field, if the Nady/Diaz combo doesn't pan out, the Mets should make a run at bringing back Melvin Mora, who may be a free agent at the end of the season. He's been playing 3rd base for the Orioles, but he was dynamite to watch in the outfield when he played for the Mets. Of course the best part about watching Melvin Mora play is that he often looks like he's about to cry.
