Agree with all those points.

Pollock would end up being a David Wright-lite. He can't stay healthy.

Thatís true. But all players are a potentail injury concern, imo, and if he checks out physically before he signs, you take the chance within reason. Plus, his injury history is obviously baked into his value. A Pollock talent with no injury history would have many teams offering crazy big contracts right now. Also, I like that his injuries have all come from playing balls-out.

Makes sense. I'd still avoid if I were a GM....but then again, I've only won fantasy baseball championships, not the real thing.

He's a really solid catcher. Mets were going to probably have to trade Syndergaard or someone on that level to get Realmuto, and it just wouldn't be worth it. Ramos is without a doubt an upgrade. I think you guys still need one more big bat in the lineup and 1-2 more solid releievers and you'll be on your way.

Braves are going to be a bitch though. Apparently they're in the market for Bumgarner too..who knows if those rumors are true, but if they find a way to land him...good luck. They're stacked already as it is.
