Wheeler Shines In Mets Loss

There weren’t many positives to come out of the Mets 2-1 loss to the Pardes on Sunday, except for how Zack Wheeler shined. For the fourth straight game the right hander registered a quality start, throwing six strong innings, while only allowing one run. Unfortunately for Wheeler, he was subjected to another poor offensive performance by his teammates. Wheeler has been subject...

When Two Extremes Meet In The Middle

“Zack Wheeler goes against Odrisamer Despaigne on Sunday so that game could either be extremely entertaining, or reach through my soul and rip my throat out. Me being a Mets fan, there is no in between.” -Me … being extremely prescient as usual As you know, I hate being right. But when I wrote that last night, I was merely trying to bring my runaway wreck to a stop. I had...

DraftKings – Wheelerin’ and Dealerin’

Zack Wheeler ($7,700) takes the mound today against an impotent Padres offense. San Diego is hitting a cool .220 against right-handers this season. If you are into advanced stats, they have posted a 76 wRC+ against RHP in 2014. Any way you slice it, they suck. For less than $8K, I'm putting just about anybody out there against the Padres especially in their pitching-friendly...

Some Second Half Thoughts: Kicking Tires On Rasmus

A couple of things have been on my mind recently as we get set to open the second half of the season. No preamble. Here they are: Free Agent Target? As expected, the crop of free agents after the 2014 season is miserable, but there is one guy who intrigues me. Should platoon options over the second half not work out for the long haul in left field, I’d kick the tires on Colby...

Which Pitching Prospects Go First In A Blockbuster Trade?

So we all know by now that the Mets have a stacked farm system when it comes to pitching. Sure, the big club has been clicking on all cylinders recently, but in order to ensure sustained success, all the talk has been leading to the team needing one more big bat in the middle of the lineup. The major areas for upgrade at this point are left field and shortstop. Even if a blockbuster...

The Mets would be crazy to trade Zack Wheeler

As an active reader of what is probably way too many Mets blogs, message boards, ESPN Insider articles, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a feeling that the Mets should considering dangling Zack Wheeler in a trade for a premium bat. The biggest name being thrown around right now is Starlin Castro, mainly because the Cubs suddenly became loaded at SS with the addition of Addison...

Should The Mets Be Deadline Buyers?

For a while now, the Mets have been pointing to 2015 as The Year, the time when all the pieces come together and produce a big league roster capable of, at the very least, being a serious contender in a loaded NL East. Actually, things seem to be relatively on track in Queens. Ace Matt Harvey, who will likely miss all of this season due to Tommy John Surgery, should be 100% healthy...

Jacob deGrom and his future role

Last night against the Atlanta Braves, Jacob deGrom put together arguably his best major league start to date. With that and the return of Dillon Gee to the rotation, deGrom’s future with the Mets is a little bit cloudy. Going into next season, the Mets seem to have more major league ready starting pitching than needed for the five starting spots. Matt Harvey will be back and seemingly...

Castro and Mets Are A Perfect Match, But All Star Shortstop May Not Be Available

Think Mets should trade Zack Wheeler? Not so fast

Zack Wheeler offered proof on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field why it’s just plain to foolish to have his name mentioned in any type of trade scenarios involving the Mets this season or any time in the near future. You simply don’t give up on a young pitcher at any price, especially the kind of pitcher Wheeler could turn out to be. Sure, in today’s world of social media and...

Mets could go after Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro

A golden opportunity in the name of Starlin Castro has sprung seemingly out of nowhere, and the Mets need to do everything they can to take advantage of it. If that means trading Zack Wheeler and perhaps even another pitcher to get the best-hitting shortstop this side of Troy Tulowitzki, so be it. On Saturday, however, there was no indication the Mets were moving quickly to investigate...

It’s Time For The Mets To Stop Trading Away Pieces And Start Trading For MLB Caliber Players

Three and a half years ago, Sandy Alderson took over the controls of the New York Mets to turn a high-priced team full of aging veterans, into a contending team while replenishing a barren farm system. The latter part of that statement has been taken care of, while the first part has not. Mets fans have seen Alderson turn three 35-year-old and up players, into some pretty highly...
