JUSTIN TURNER RUMORS

Wilmer Flores should be this year’s Justin Turner

Justin Turner truly defined what a utility player actually could be last year.  He played 23 games at third base, 18 games at shortstop, 15 games at first base, and 12 games at second base.  He didn’t have as many at bats as in previous years, 200 AB, but he still managed to hit .280 for the season.  The ability to play multiple positions was a valuable asset for Collins who...

Report: Dodgers Sign Justin Turner. Finally.

(via) I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything. This seemed pretty obvious a few days ago, when the Dodgers let loose that a signing of an infielder was imminent, that there was just about no one...

Give Justin Turner a chance at first base

Since the beginning of the 2012 season the Mets have been patient with Ike Davis’s struggles. They even kept him in the majors, allowing him to turn around his season, putting up a wRC+ of 141, offsetting his wRC+ of 79 in the first half. However, his start to this season has been nightmarish. Hitting a humbling line of .137/.236/.245, the public has expressed its discontent with...

Chris McShane of Amazin Avenue get’s the nod in this weeks edition of Fair or Foul after arguing that the Mets should designate Justin Turner for assignment in all due haste.
