In regards to next year’s lineup, Terry Collins told WFAN on Tuesday, “We’ve got to get somebody in the middle of the lineup who is dangerous, so they say, ‘Hey, I have to pitch to David Wright, I don’t want to pitch to the next guy.’”

He’s right. This HAS TO BE the TOP priority this winter, and Sandy Alderson has to come away successful in his quest. I don’t know how it happens. I don’t know if it means trading one of these top pitching prospects. But, I know he wants another hitter to rely on, in addition to Wright.
It doesn’t have to be Murderer’s Row, not by a long shot.
It’s my understanding that Alderson is fine mixing and matching with young players and short-term contracts, like the Red Sox, so long as he has Wright and another heavy to lean on.
Who is that other guy? I don’t know yet, but it sounds like Collins is curious, as well…
