    We're knee deep in legit pitching for the next 10 years...

    You don't trade that.

    The trick is figuring out who to keep and who to trade.

    Personally if I was the GM I would sign a couple of FA position players and keep all the young pitchers.

    Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard, and now, welcome back to the conversation, Jenrry Meija.

    They're all young, hard throwing studs. And because they're human beings who are doing the most unnatural thing you can do with a right arm -- pitch -- they're also all vulnerable to arm trouble. What they say is true: You can never have enough pitching.

    Hoard them.

    I think the Mets will need to make trades, but when to trade young pitching is as important as who trade.

    Easier said than done. That's obviously ideal, but if we have the choice between keeping all our young pitchers and having no offense vs. trading 1-2 of our young pitchers, I'd go with the latter.

    The Mets have enough money coming off the books that they should be able to sign a SS and an outfielder to help them improve their offense.

    Keep the pitching because in this day an age you need at least 8 starters to get through a season.

    They need to invest as much money as they can on offense. Our rotation will be making little to no money which will leave a lot of money to invest in the offense

    I agree. I changed my thinking on this recently.

    If the team payroll is looking like 30-40 mil next year there's no excuse not to spend because a "bad contract" wouldn't hurt as much.

    They've said they liked the Red Sox blueprint this past off season where they didn't deal their prospects and signed 4-5 free agents while not destroying their flexibility for when a "true star" becomes available in the next few years.

    Mejia is younger than Harvey and the same age as Wheeler. People seem to forget that.

    You do trade that. What the hell are we gonna do with 9 starters? Niese is someone you need to pray comes back healthy and back to his old form, because we need that good lefty in the rotation. Obviously Wheeler and Harvey are untouchable. I really like Gee, cheap an reliable 5th starters. Mejia would be my other guy, as he's way more valuable to us than the value he'd get in a trade. His trade value has diminished, his pitching ability has not. Guys like Hefner and Torres you either trade or move to the Pen. I would lean towards dumping Hefner and moving Torres to the pen. Hope a guy like Familia can get healthy, stay healthy, and develop his command cause he can be a great pen arm. Montero and Syndergaard are the Wild cards, most likely you keep one, and trade the other in a package. Maybe Montero and Flores for a really solid under contract OFer.
    Keep Syndergaard hopefully, because you need the depth if someone flares out of course and Noah has the potential to be a 2-3 starter, and if all the other guys work out too, Gee would turn into a bullpen arm most likely. Re-sign Aardsma and/or Atchison

    Next year Im hopping for:

    Harvey
    Wheeler
    Niese
    Mejia
    Gee

    Parnell
    Familia
    Torres
    Germen
    Edgin
    Hefner
    Aardsma/Atchison

    Noah, Montero, Mazzoni, Mateo, Fulmer, Tapia, Degrom, Robles, and Leathersich all 1-2 years away of course.



    Also… Knee deep? Torso deep at the very least
