Wheeler is at best a No. 3 starter and can be maddenly inconsistent, but damn if I didn’t want to lose him…esp. to a major division rival. Word’s out too that Cole Hamels just a 1-year deal with of course…the Braves. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on any major deal from the Mets. SMH.
Sick and tired of all this trade talk about the Mets and one of their starters. I no it makes for good copy, but what does it do for us in the long run? What big name prospect out there can we really pick up for Wheeler? Even in a lost season like this one, Mets management has gots to know that pitching is our one major strength and what wins us championships. In other words, sign our ace Degrom to a longterm contract already and leave Matz, Syndergaard and Wheeler alone.
