Mets On the Rise: 1968, 1983…2014?

It’s a fun thing to wake up overseas, on a fantastic vacation, roll over, grab your cell phone and follow the last couple of innings of a Mets’ win. That’s exactly what your intrepid columnist experienced as the All-Star break ended. Germany was awesome, but Saturday morning looked a little bit better with the Padres having been dispatched just before my morning shower. ...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Jul 30

I’ve found myself becoming an increasingly bigger fan of Zack Wheeler. While he’s certainly erratic and still prone to some blowups, he doesn’t allow a ton of homers and has major upside on any given day. He comes in at number two in Wednesday’s rankings. There are a lot of really big names pitching Wednesday. Corey Kluber is among them, but Steamer’s ROS projected 3.47...

Connor’s Corner: For The Right Deal, Tulowitzki Makes Sense For Mets

Tulo and the Mets — a match made in heaven? Jeff Passan put a match to the impatience of Mets fans yesterday, reporting that the Mets are “prepared to offer” Noah Syndergaard in a deal to acquire Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Passan did not say the Mets had offered a deal involving Syndergaard, only that they would be willing to part with him in a trade for Tulo. Even...

Three years after the Beltran-Wheeler swap, a look back

July 28th marks the three-year anniversary of Sandy Alderson’s first ‘big’ move as General Manager of the Mets, trading Carlos Beltran to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for right-handed pitcher Zack Wheeler.  At the time, the move was cheered by many as the first step in the arduous process of rebuilding the Mets from laughing stock into contender. Beltran’s career...

Newcomer First Impressions

So…I’m just going to leave the sweep by the Dodgers alone…but let’s talk about these new acquisitions. I don’t think Jake Peavy is going to save this team, but the trade wasn’t a bad trade, because of the cost.  The last few years, the Giants have done a good job of understanding which of their prospects were disappointing.  With the obvious exception of Zack Wheeler...

Celebrating the last 12 starts of Zack Wheeler

Everyone’s an expert (or critic) after the fact. That’s why preseason projections are such a nice thing to have. Before the season started, the official Mets360 projection for Zack Wheeler was for a 3.48 ERA and a 3.68 FIP. Currently, he has numbers that are almost perfectly reversed, as he sports a 3.64 ERA and a 3.47 FIP. Essentially, he’s pitching just the way the average...

How Should the Mets Handle Matt Harvey’s Return?

Mets fans can dream about next year’s starting rotation, which will presumably include Matt Harvey, Jonathon Niese, Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler, and Jacob deGrom. All of them will be 28 or younger when the season begins and all could be well above average next season. There is no doubt that when Matt Harvey is healthy, the Mets are a much better team. While getting him back will be...

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...

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...

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...

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

John Harper of the Daily News writes that If the Mets can acquire Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro for Zack Wheeler and perhaps even another pitcher, they should do it.

One Mets source said the the Cubs and Castro were “a perfect...

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...
