Too Early To Name Opening Day Starter

Mike Puma of The New York Post recently wrote the Mets are strongly considering going with Zack Wheeler as their Opening Day starter. While I like Puma and don’t dispute his sources, naming Wheeler, or anybody else for that matter, as the Opening Day starter now is premature and a bad idea. Of course the media wants to know. I want to know, but considering the make-up of the Mets’...

Zack Wheeler had an interesting 2014

Zack Wheeler had fairly a solid season in 2014. He’s now had a year and a half of generally successful major league time, though he’s still not the front-line starter that many had predicted he could become. He’s still very young and has plenty of time to improve, but that doesn’t mean we can’t drill down into his 2014 a bit to get idea of what kind of pitcher Wheeler is...

The Mets would be crazy to trade Zack Wheeler
