    I will go with Mateo here due to his slider/fastball and command combination.

    Same, I went with Mateo. His command is probably better than Familia's right now and he's had much less experience.

    Again, Familia.

    Mateo has #2-3 upside and has control of his pitches. Familia's upside is closer. Guess it depends on what you like.

    Mateo will most likely be the closer.
    But he has only played short season A ball.

    Where Familia has pitched effectively in the bigs.

    He is further away meaning he has more time to continue improving. Familia has had a lot of innings and has proven he can't start. I love his stuff, but he's a pen arm at best.

    I guess I stand alone on my opinion of our future catcher Kevin Plawecki. A part of me says the Mets try to convert TDA to a less dangerous position. I wonder about how durable he'll be behind the plate. Match that with no outfielders in the pipeline and we have a conspiracy theory. What do you think McFly?

    I disagree, but considering the need for inexpensive pen arms, Familia will end up there.
    I like Mateo, I like him more than Tapia.

    But Familia is closer, has proven himself in AA and AAA. Plus his breaking ball is just nasty.

    I just don't think his command or change will ever be good enough to start. He and Mateo have a similar profile, but I think Mateo's command is better than Familia's.

    No way can I like Mateo over Tapia, he's got 1 1/2 age difference and Tapia's raw arm strength and build is what you love to see out of a front-line starter.

    I don't think Familia has proven himself at AAA at all. I think it's exposed his lack of fastball command, as he is able to throw his breaking balls for strikes more consistently which is odd.
