Please no Corey!

According to the Baltimore Sun the O's are no longer the favorites to acquire Corey Patterson from the Cubs leading to speculation on Rotoworld.com that the M's may, in fact, be the front runners for CP - in which case they would trade Reed to Boston.

Please, please tell me this isn't true. I don't even know who we'd have to give up or would get for Reed, but it doesn't matter. I don't want Corey roaming CF in Safeco and I don't want him batting second.

Corey Patterson 2005: 451AB, .215 avg(!!), .254 obp, .348 slg, 13 HR, 15SB
Jeremy Reed 2005: 488AB, .254 avg, .322 obp, 3HR, 12SB

More on this if it actually happens...

I'd rather have the '05 version of Jeremy Reed this season than Corey Patterson.

Good thoughts on Patterson at the Sportspot.net and Lookout Landing forums:
