Re: Saints nearing deal with Vilma

Greetings. I've been following this board for a few weeks. Good conversation.

Weighing in on my favorite team.

I'm concerned with the Saints possibly signing JVilma. He has been a very good player in the past but his knee is a major concern. I hope we aren't jumping to fast to sign a MLB since this seems to be a weak spot for free agency.

I trust the coaching staff, but this move tests that trust.

The guy couldn't shed blocks before the chronic knee defect became an issue.

Re: VILMA is finally a Saint.

I am excited about this move...i know there are injury questions but if this guy stays healthy, then we finally have a young, active, speedy MLB that can make plays. And the fact that its a pick in NEXT years draft makes it that much better...hopefully we wont be picking in the top 10 again next year.

Re: Saints nearing deal with Vilma

You are going to love this guy. It is too bad for us that he didn't fit into our system, but I am excited for Vilma to be somewhere that can really showoff his talent.
I am glad that he is heading down to NO. And he is going to look good in the black and gold.

Re: Saints nearing deal with Vilma

Okay, I think this is a little better deal in that it's a conditional pick based on production and probably not until 2009. Not bad. If he recovers to the same LB he was prior to the surgery then it's another Drew Brees type signing. If not, we probably don't lose much. I still say draft a MLB in the 2nd round.
