Rubin: Teams Asking For Zack Wheeler In Trade Discussions

According to Adam Rubin of, teams have been asking for Zack Wheeler virtually every time the Mets try to engage in any trade discussions. Rubin says that even when the Mets are discussing platoon or back up catchers, Wheeler’s name has come up.

Are you Kidding me?

These teams can’t be serious.

If general managers are being that delusional, it’s no wonder why the Mets have been unable to make a trade so far at the Winter Meetings.

If teams are asking for Wheeler in a deal for back up catchers, then what are they looking to give up for R.A. Dickey? Cracker Jacks?

If this is true, I can’t fault Alderson for not pulling the trigger on a deal.
