    It's risk averse in terms of overall monetary commitment. The Mets unfortunately are not in the business of throwing significant money at players with no major league track record.

    If we are using the most logical train of thought its not Fernandez either. Yes he may be the youngest but only Strasburg has shown that he has recovered fully from TJ to this point. After that, its...

    Its not a AAA lineup this year but if the Mets are going to live with Flores at SS (which i hope they dont but think they will acquire a younger SS piece) they need a Denofria or Ludwick to be their...

    Doubt it. Again its about the culmination of the entire contract with the Mets, not as much yearly salary. There is a big difference between 21 million dollars and 90 million dollars.

    No argument...

    If they fix him, they fix him. There is still talent there with him having been a former 1st rounder but its not like he didn't have plenty of opportunities to figure it out here. Although, I would...

    Because it involve money the Mets don't have. Ramirez isn't going to be a difference maker if he moves to the OF btw and the Mets have a 3rd baseman.

    You were right. I think we all get hung up on peripheral stats too often but in this case its specifically the absense of command through the lack of fluidity and consistency in his mechanics....

    Thats semantics imo. If he is suggesting he picked up things from their approach then he did learn something from watching Tulo and Cargo. That said i think its overstated in his eventual results.

    Could have been he played with injuries or that they were still using the humidifiers more frequently. I don't know but players go into that ballpark and have career seasons all the time. I'd bet...

    Might not be but the better question is why he was inducing more ground ball outs? That will determine if its sustainable or not. There are other correlating stats that can mitigate lower GB rates...

    I don't know how that makes reference to what Cuddyer said about learning from Tulo and Cargo. It's not like his last year with the Twins was drastically different than seasons he had with them...

    I understand that sentiment but remember Colon, Niese and Gee were prospects at one point as well and in some cases significantly less talented ones. Eventually what made them major league pitchers...

    Well his ERA and FIP presumably go up but I don't know Wheeler's correlated GB rates in the minors so who is to say it's an aberration? Wheeler took a lot of positive steps last year in spite of him...

    I don't think Wheeler will be our #3 long term so to me its more about results over the allotted amount of innings he gives us. If he can still progress with his command and control, even...

    I don't subscribe to "haven't proved it in the major leagues" theory to be honest. These guys are a lot more major league ready when they are called up then even 15-20 years ago. I like to compare...

    Ballpark adjusted or not, his wRC+ will regress in Citi Field. We can't ignore his wOBA jumping 70 points from his career average when playing in the best hitter's ballpark in baseball.

    I'll feel more confident when Matz and Syndergaard replace Gee, Niese, and/or Colon. Hopefully the Mets limit Torres more over the long haul similar to what they did last season as their bullpen...

    The Mets won't move Niese to the bullpen. He will either be traded before the season begins or start the year in the rotation (although he may not end there at the end of 2015).

    Yeah that pretty much makes them a borderline playoff team, imo. I'm not so concerned about the lefty reliever part as you can find an effective loogy by happenstance sometimes.
