Wheeler News is Frustrating, But Hardly Shocking or Catastrophic

As you have heard by now, Zack Wheeler is out for the season. He has a complete tear of the UCL in his pitching elbow and will require Tommy John Surgery, the same procedure that sidelined Matt Harvey in 2014 and will keep Josh Edgin out of action this year. Is this a frustrating development? […]

The Mets (1-1) lost 5-4 to the Nationals (1-0) at Space Coast Stadium on Thursday. Bartolo Colon got the start for the Mets and looked good (well, he pitched nicely), tossing two perfect innings. But Hansel Robles gave up 2 runs on 2 hits and a hit batsman in his inning of work, and Gabriel […]

MMO Mailbag: When Will We See Syndergaard?

Alex asks… What has to happen before we can see Noah Syndergaard join the rotation assuming he’s dominating in Las Vegas through May? I’m concerned Dillon Gee is still here plus we’d have to still make room for him in the rotation regardless. By the way, I think giving Bartolo Colon that second year was […]

MMO Mailbag: Is Daniel Murphy A Mid-Season Trade Candidate?

Alex asks… I have a question about Daniel Murphy. Let’s say the Mets are in the thick of a fight for the division a game out of first. Murphy is having a typical season and is in the top five in doubles, runs and base hits while batting .285. Will the Mets trade him at […]

MMO Mailbag: Boston’s Mookie Betts Instead Of Yoenis Cespedes?

Gabriel asks… What would it take to acquire Mookie Betts from Boston? I like the idea of getting him much more than the Mets going for Yoenis Cespedes. For a kid his size (5’9″, 155 lbs), there’s a lot of power there while he has room to fill out, and he would fill a need […]
